With the recent tragedies, nature and man-made, it is difficult not to get swallowed up into the negative energy, causing anxiety, fear and melancholy. However, to help others and ourselves, we can decide to be an agent for good.
We can shift negative conversations into positive discussions by helping others notice the good that is still going on. We can help ourselves and others by shifting our conversations toward gratitude and playful humor, especially when children are nearby. If we do this everyone will go about their day feeling positive and hopeful, rather than anxious and fearful.
Do yourself and others a favor, don’t keep negative conversations alive. Our words have energy, choose the good ones!
If you get stuck in the yuck, (hey, I’m a poet!) then reach out for help before despair sets in. I am here for you when you need support. ~ Jean
