this one has come up a few times for me in different areas of my life. people often assume that because you are spiritual and you practice gratitude and positivity that you are infinitely this way and nothing will ever bother you! some people question why you might be feeling negative when i present so positively through my work.
well i am human! i have emotions just like everyone else and i’ll admit it i am not constantly happy. i think that i have said before that sometimes the bad situations are the experiences that i have received the most lessons from and generally something positive comes out of it. you need to feel the lows to appreciate the highs.
it’s what i love about butterfly heart. i have the opportunity to teach people some tools to living and leading a positive life to build those coping mechanisms when you are feeling emotional or down and out. you are going to have those days when you feel like shit and the last thing you feel like doing is saying a positive affirmation. i hear ya sister because I wouldn’t want to do that either.
one thing i think people should know is that you should never be afraid of your emotions or discount them. be present and feel them. i wouldn’t suggest wallowing in them forever but take what you need from it, release it and move on. because what you don’t acknowledge now it will rear its ugly head later for you to look at and deal with again. like they say its better out than in.
i often have to reflect on what it is that i am projecting out into the world and think about how i’d like to change my thoughts or how i communicate with some people and how i deal with my emotions.
through my spiritual journey i have become more proactive in the way that i do what it takes to support myself to actively chase my happiness and practice gratitude and positivity. it’s my contribution to the world and to show others that they can lead a positively happy life if they want too.
so be as positive when you can because you can feel awesome but acknowledge when you feel like crap and something is bugging you. its like the ebb and flow of the ocean you can’t have one without the other.
enjoy your week beautiful butterflies!
