Help you feel better

When you are feeling down, focus your thoughts on this question. What can you do that would help you feel better?

Instead of filling your mind with doubt, self-pity, resentment, regret and despair, fill it with thoughts and plans for moving positively forward. There is something that will take your focus off of whatever has already happened and direct your thoughts firmly toward the best of what can be.

Pay no attention to how you’re supposed to feel or how you’re expected to feel. Decide for yourself how good you would like to feel, and then take the steps that will get you there.

It will likely be much easier than you think. For once you choose to feel better, it quickly begins to happen.

It sounds too simple to be true, yet it works with surprising and delightful effectiveness. When you decide to help yourself feel better, you will.

What can you do that will help you feel better? You’re just a moment away from making it happen.
