Have you ever gone to bed feeling one way only to awake the next morning feeling totally different? No changes in your circumstances. Nothing special is on your calendar. Life is the same today as it was yesterday. But you aren’t.
When it’s for the better you are all smiles. There’s a bounce in your step. But what about those days when it’s sunny outside, but in your heart it’s raining? What do you do then? Raise an umbrella.
Read that last line again. Life doesn’t revolve around YOU! Thinking it does is a guarantee that on those “rainy” days selfish desires will enslave you. Spawning self-destructive behaviors that can wreck havoc relationally, financially and physically.
Instead of having a pity party for one, play these “rainy day” activities.
- Encourage others with words of affirmation.
- Perform random acts of kindness.
- Give gifts.
- Have a leisurely meal with someone and be an active listener.
- Bear hug someone.
- Say, “I love you.”
So the next time it begins to “rain” in your heart recite this.
Rain rain go away.
It is time for me to play.
Thanks for listening to my voice! Feel free to like and share it with your friends.
Have a great day! Rita
