Mood

Who Or What Determines Your Mood?

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could choose your mood? and not someone else or something else?  Feelings are catching.  The other day it was Obamacare and the rising cost of insurance leading to the fear of not being able to afford to carry medical insurance and doing without.  It was very upsetting to think about and anyway not a very constructive thing to do.  It is not that I don’t think it could happen, but why be miserable and worry about it when it has not happened yet.  Also the politicians responsible for this potential problem are not and never were worried about it and besides if it happened, it wouldn’t be a problem for them as they have already made sure that they will be covered and/or could afford the increased cost of medical insurance.  Misery loves company.  When one person gets upset about something like this, they want to share the problem with others.

Then there is the sniper, the person who from out of no where says something to you that cuts to the quick and goes merrily on their way while you are bleeding to death.  Consider the source, this may not be the first time this has happened to you with this person.  Are you going to let that person ruin your day? especially when he or she will deny that he or she had any intention of doing so.

Let go and let God.   Just because someone else is upset, do you need to get upset too?  When somebody has bad intentions and denies them, do you let them get away with it.  Not only do you wind up feeling bad, but also you can’t justify it on the grounds that the other person says that they didn’t mean anything by what they said.

Clouds In Your Life

Worry, fear, blame, criticism, all these things, as well as others taking a negative point of view, can cloud your life in doom, gloom. rage, and depression.  As long as you let other people and other things cause you problems, you will lose control of how you feel about your life.  I have been there and I still go back there every now and then and sometimes more frequently than that.  Do you often think, “If only….” then I would be happy, feel safe, feel loved, be secure, be proud of myself…  You let your attitude depend on other things over which you do not have much control and you tend to lose control of your feelings.

In this world we live in in these United States, it is easy to think this way because the media, some of the people we have around us, and society itself tends to lean this way.  If we look outside our country, the news usually isn’t any better.  It is often worse.   As a result we often feel helpless.  We don’t realize that there is any other way to think or view life. There are or were some isolated societies like the aborigines in Australia who have or had some life philosophies and cultural beliefs that go or went with happier lifestyles.  Also some people have family, a religious community, or friends that think differently and offer support to help them develop and keep a better outlook on life.
