Growing out of our Disturbances

Feeling down, ouch!

I want to talk about something: Growing out of our disturbances. There are many times that we have aches, pains, moans and groans. Yes, they do come even when we least expect them to. Sometimes our spirit is feeling low. Sometimes we don't go to the doctor like we should. But when we are feeling 'down-and-out,' we need to think of something positive to boost our mind, immune system, and spirit or find something positive to engage into. We could embrace something as simple as, enjoying the mountainous view across the city that we live in. How about the grace of God? Maybe there's a craft you like to do like knitting, or drawing, playing tennis or jogging. You know that thing you like to do, the one thing that you think you are 'Just Too Old For!' Hey! You only live once and if you have the belief to PRAY, the ability to play tennis STILL, or go for a JOG, maybe do some Tae Bo exercises, just probably write an inspiring book, you need to do it! Because you are here for another day and that is hope, nobody's going to do it for you and as I say: God has chosen to allow me another day of life, health, and strength; As long as I am able to do-Fill in the Blank-I am going to do it to the best of my ability, because when I am not able to do-Fill in the Blank-that will be the time for me to slow things down.

It is not good to linger on what is hurting, or what is causing an interruption in your plans. Even though there are things that will be consuming of our mind, thoughts and feelings, there are some moments which we can have the upper hand on. Take charge of those!

Getting out of a Rut

I have found that through networking, or talking to other people (yeah, strangers sometimes just for conversation while sitting on the bus, talk to the bus driver) can help relieve the most strenuous tension. Now stress is a DISTURBANCE. Hello? There are signs like the following examples: High Blood Pressure, Headaches, and Migraines. All of these are encouraged by stress. Why do we allow ourselves to feel those burdensome feelings like, sorry for ourselves because of something someone else has done against us or guilty because we had an injury that led to us not being able to do that thing...what was it? Oh! Playing basketball, maybe. The point I am making here is that: When you still have the ability to breathe, the ability to use all of your limbs, the ability to use your senses, the ability to use your extremities, and the Blessing to be in your right mind (Oh, and that is indeed a BLESSING, many people wake up out of their minds every day), there is something fun and exciting that you can partake in. Don't let your day go by and not do something positive to uplift your spirit. You might need to brainstorm to find some options if you don't already have something in practice. Also, don't just sit around and feel sorry for yourself. Think good, clear, positive, inspiring, yet encouraging thoughts to make your day a pleasant one. It's easy to do, now I pass this torch on to you.

So, do you see how you "too" can get out of that rut that you have been stuck in lately? How about something that you can take away to help someone that is close and dear to you? This is a great way to keep this post going strong, by harnessing it's encouraging words of endearment to assist us daily.

Go ahead and leave me a comment, I will be sure to respond. Thank you for visiting my HubPages!

I was having the hardest time dealing with not finding a job. I was feeling down for Christmas because of it, at first! But, I chose to lift my spirits by engaging more with my family and walla! I'm getting snapped by the camera..in a pose of course.
