…even when everything seems to be falling apart…lies within me and me only, I have realized.
Tough times hit home every now and then…in someway or the other. And it is reflected on whatever I do, without a doubt.
At times like those, I used to don my crappiest possible mood for as long as I wanted to and made sure I gave myself one reason after another to justify that it was ok to be grumpy and not do anything about it. Sometimes, I took it a step forward to list out how it might be because of others that I’m losing it all.
Somewhere along the way, I’ve come to a realization that no one else can in any way affect my mood…good or bad, it’s all ME.
And so, I’m making an effort to change the way I look at / respond to issues.
Nowadays, when the mood goes downhill, I make it a point to try and hold myself together. I promise to self that I wouldn’t let little things distract me and that I would, in someway, find a compromise and cheer my spirits up, instead of waiting for some miracle to make it all ok. After all, there is always hope that things will get better, right?
Anyway, so last week when the emotions were running high, I went out and bought some beautiful flowers…
and some candles…
So now, every time I enter my room, no matter what my current state of mind, it is sure to get a makeover, for the better…because of the fragrance that the beautiful flowers give and the aura that the candles create. And just like that, in small things like these I have learned to find a getaway from any emotional merry-go-round.
The heart has now discovered a way to sing happy tunes even when there is chaos around. If that is not growing up, then what is? 🙂
