Still a dreamer…Old Memories and New Hopes

We All Have Those Moments!

If you’re born with the Constant Cheery gene, than you wouldn’t be in this category..but most of us have those moments that lead to days, hopefully dealt with, and you’re feeling better in a short time. I have always preferred the all natural route, since I do have, as I have said before, a 24/7 therapist….on duty whenever I need her. Me….I don’t pretend to be a therapist and know what’s right for you. I’m not referring to clinical depression or any issue that needs medical intervention. What I’m talking about reactive sadness, or the feeling of low energy and not yourself mood. If you know for sure this is just an emotional cloud that I have occasionally, I know the treatment for me, and perhaps for you as well.
You may be having personal or family issues. You may not be living in the moment as you try to do. You may be overthinking the negative and not focusing on the positive, everything you think has been resolved becomes unresolved. You need high energy to push away the unwanted thoughts. Your gratitude list may need updating. Your meditation is not as calming as it usually is. The list goes on with all the if’s…So how to address. Cut back on sugar. Most of the times, the bad sugar takes your energy, it doesn’t give it to you. Have a piece of the darkest chocolate if you can.
A quick fix that does last if you’re physically able to do? Twenty minutes of disco dancing. My preference is Pure Disco. Dancing never fails to raise my endorphin’s, giving a natural high. Dance like nobody’s watching, is a quote that has been attributed to many, too many to write down, but they are not my original words……the meaning behind them? Dance like a free spirit. Dance to the music. Dance as if you haven’t a care in the world. It’s great because you have on the rhythms of the universe, not the world.
Hope your joys are like waves in the sea, washing away your sadness, and mine.

  2. Thank you Ronnie. I used to dance for an hour when Barry was alive. Then the music stopped. About 7 years ago, I started again. It helps.

  3. Sweet words and much needed. I am on this emotional roller coaster right now and it isn’t fun! :-/
    But the wedding is over and it went very well. There were a couple of hiccups but nothing major and 99% of it turned out to be exactly right! My mother did NOT come and that is probably for the best. My brother did try to talk her into and she wasn’t having it. Her excuse was that she wasn’t part of the planning?? Really?? My daughter had actually taken her with her to the craft store to start looking at things in the beginnig. Daughter LOVES burlap and we had some in the decorations. It wasn’t overly done, but it was sweet and very trendy right now so easy to find. My mother informed my daughter that SHE didn’t like “all that burlap” and thought my brother/SIL wedding was ugly? Hmmm… wonder why she wouldn’t include my mother after that. AND she said I shouldn’t help her because I would just want to do things MY way?? Nothing could be further from the truth. If my girl had wanted everyone to wear purple birthday hats, I would have bought them! LOL! I did everything within my power to make it as close to perfect for her as I could, but I can’t control everything. And the stuff that did go wrong was because I didn’t have a say or was not informed/asked. Nothing major happened and it was beautiful! Daughter made a beautiful bride! So all is right with the world! 🙂 ❤

  4. It seems Courtney that no matter what you do or don’t do, your mother hasn’t the capacity to accept and love. You really need to stop empowering her to upset you. Take the power back and you will be and feel free. I know from experience that the more empowered you are, the easier life becomes.
    So happy the wedding was 99% perfect. That’s pretty good. If you drank wine and we lived closer, we could have a great conversation. Until then, at least we have this great connection.
    Wish many joys to you and the new couple..

    • Thanks Paulette… and you are very correct! I was chastised by a friend yesterday. She said, “If you don’t tell me something positive about the wedding, I don’t want to hear another word about it!” LOL! I wasn’t really focusing on the things I should have…like the 99% that DID go right. I was talking about the stuff that went wrong. She is a good friend and she was absolutely right. And my mother was part of the issue. I have let her live in my head for a couple of weeks now and it’s time to put it down. I will stick it in a box and put it on a shelf….. 🙂
