I've been kind of semi-unemployed for almost three years. And its becoming easier and easier to cope with this situation. Why? I have a lot of time to meditate.
Having subscribed to KindSpring and other positive and good news pages makes me focus on appreciation and gratitude more so my meditations can be... peaceful and very ordinary uplifting experiences. I get the opportunity to watch if depression wants to step in and choose what I want.
My soul chose to have this experience and probably has been one of the best ones in several lifetimes; to learn to unconditionally be kind and loving to myself always and all-ways. And then, sharing to others is a pleasure.
So, the 21-day challenge is almost over, so fast. It has made a difference for me to keep focused on kindness.
Yes, I still have my issues, but just a shift in consciousness, a twist on choosing how to see at things, makes everything lighter and brighter.
Many thanks to those who participate here. We have kept a growing uplifting energy available to all of us by sharing our stories. And then what? I'll keep coming back here to read your stories and telling you some of my own. The blessings already are.
I was about to continue an argument with my sister on email, but sent her something I read on KindSpring, instead:
I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive. I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting. I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess. I wish enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Good-bye."
She answered: We may argue but I love you very much.
