Welcome to my third positivity post! If you’re new to this series, you can find my previous post here.
When something else happens or may happen, it throws you off. You may get overly too excited, too nervous, too worried, annoyed, disappointed and so on. So, how do you deal?
“A calm mind is a clear mind. A clear mind is a proper thinker.” – This Scribbler Mum
Speaking for myself – if I’m faced with a new situation whether good or bad, strong emotions take over. This is normal. However, if I let those strong emotions linger for longer than necessary, then it can affect how I would react or handle everything else that comes my way that day.
If it results in a more positive outcome, that’s brilliant! But what if not?
Negative emotions could lead me to respond incorrectly to circumstances that could have been good and waste opportunities. I could end up turning small setbacks into bigger ones because of snap decisions.
Being overly eager from too much excitement might result in disappointment. Just like how having a sugar rush can bring you crashing down.
This week has been a little different so far. A lot of things have been going on, bringing me multiple different emotions all at the same time. So how do I deal? I focus on being calm.
Much like a good sleep at night gives you a whole new perspective on things in the morning. Because when you sleep, you’re calm.
When I am calm, I have a clearer mind. When I am calm, I am more focused. When I am calm, common sense does not leave me. When I am calm, I can solve problems. When I am calm, I can deal better.
By practicing calmness I was able to do a lot. I was able to focus more on the brighter side of things. I was able to realize that there’s a way around to what I thought was an obstacle. I was able to concentrate and produce a creative work. I was able to have a good day.
Today, I am – calm.
