Think about the last time you felt a negative emotion:
like stress, anger, or frustration.
Were you able to think as you were going through that negativity?
Today, let me show you a simply but effective exercise to deal with a negative emotion.
The next time you find yourself in the middle of a very stressful time, or you feel angry or frustrated, stop!
Whatever you're doing, stop and sit for one minute.
While you're sitting there, completely immerse yourself in the negative emotion.
Allow that emotion to consume you.
Allow yourself one minute to truly feel that emotion.
Take the entire minute, but only one minute, to do nothing else but feel that emotion.
Once you've allowed yourself to be totally immersed in the emotion and really feel it,
you will be surprised to find that the emotion clears rather quickly.
If you feel you need to hold on to the emotion for a little longer, that is ok.
Allow yourself another minute to feel the emotion.
When you feel you've had enough of the emotion,
take a deep breath, as you exhale, release all that negativity with your breath.
This exercise seems simple-almost too simple.
But,it is very effective.
By allowing that negative emotion the space to be truly felt, you are dealing with the emotion rather than stuffing it down and trying not to feel it.
You are actually taking away the power of the emotion by giving it the space and attention it needs.
When you immerse yourself in the emotion, and realize that it is only emotion, it loses its control.
You can clear your head and proceed with your task.
Today before you think of saying an unkind word,
Think of someone who can't speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food,
Think of someone who has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about your huaband or wife,
Think of someone who's crying out to God for a companion.
Today before you complain about life,
Think of someone who went too early to heaven.
Before you complain about your children,
Think of someone who desires children but they're barren.
Before you argue about your dirty house some one didn't clean or sweep,
Think of the people who are living in the streets.
Before whining about the distance you drive,
Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.
And when you are tired and complain about your job,
Think of the unemployed,the disabled and those who wished they had your job.
But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another,
Remenber that not one of us is without sin and we all answer to one maker.
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down,
Put a smile on your face and thank God you're alive and still around.
Life is a gift,Enjoy it,Celebrate it,And fulfill it…
