What does it mean to honor the day?
Certainly, not pretending to be happy if you're not. Actually, not pretending at all!
But rather, finding something that allows you to close your eyes at the end of the day with a sense of satisfaction; a feeling that you were able to suck the juice that was available, and come away richer for it.
Maybe you learned something about yourself you really like - or maybe you banged into a corner of your being that needs some fixing - no matter - as long as you tuned into that something - in you, or in the world around you - it was a good day!
DANCE WITH IT! EXPERIENTIAL APPS
An opportunity to experiment with some fun ideas...
RULE #1 TO GET THE RICHNESS FROM EACH DAY: DROP THE BULLY VOICE!
Coming at you from the corners of the universe, that negative invitation to 'should' yourself to death is a non-starter - the biggest waste of your moments!
When you hear it coming:
"Why did you…!"
"You should have…!"
"Nobody will like you if you…!"
PLUG YOUR EARS AND PUSH BACK!
This is one time when harsh words are acceptable:
And the good old 3 year old standby of sticking out your tongue works too!
This voice, whether it is external from friends, teachers, parents, or internal from our own minds - is not helpful and always counter-productive.
