April Moon Day #11

the prompt for today is:



Negative things!  Negative events, bad memories, things that upset me or make me sad.  People who have made me feel like less of a person in one capacity or another.

I refuse to allow these asinine things to rob me of happiness, to take away the importance in my gift of the present moment.

I've always felt that to dwell on things (especially unpleasant things) is to live them twice.

It's been hard, teaching myself the self-discipline of learning to just let go and live on from bad experiences, but I work on this everyday.  And I'm training myself to take into consideration the negative events, decide how (or if even) I'm going to allow them to effect me, and move on.

I firmly believe that holding on to bad things, thoughts, memories, and even grudges, is a toxic thing.  It poisons your now and robs from the happiness of your future.

So, I'm going to keep trying not to talk about it.  Or even think about it, really.

  1. So very difficult, but I think you are right, and toxic is the perfect word.

  2. It's a tricky balance, no? Acknowledging these things but then not stewing in them.
    I don't think I ever get it right.
