Faery Message for Sunday 28th August 2011
Oh dear, just look at his poor, sad little face!!
As you've probably guessed, this is the card of feeling a bit down in the dumps. We all get fed up and feel sorry for ourselves from time to time, but Gloominous Doom would like to remind you, if you are feeling low today, that you have a choice in each and every moment as to how you feel. Remember nobody can make you feel bad by how they treat you, no situation or incident has the power to bring you down - it's how you choose to react to it, how you choose to view it. And how you feel is entirely your responsibility.
That is not to say that you should deny how you are feeling and plaster on a fake smile; on the contrary, it is important to acknowledge your genuine emotions so that you can understand them...otherwise how can you possibly let them go and move on? It's just that it is all too easy to get stuck in a funk of self-pity and pessimism and that serves no positive purpose, it's just a self-destructive habit.
So, acknowledge your glumness, own it, but realise that you're the one who is in charge here. You can choose to change your mindset and attitude whenever you please - feel free to be miserable for as long as you like, but it's worth bearing in mind that the sorrier we feel for ourselves, the worse our life becomes...it's NOT the other way around.
So, go on, give us a smile! :) :) :)
