It’s good to self reflect, but it’s not good to carry guilt because you’re not perfect. It’s not good to allow the whispers of our discontent to navigate their tiny clawed hooks into the things that could bring us joy.
Listen, I have learned that joy, and thereby a continuum of happiness is caused by changing your perspective. If you’re really wrapped up in the emotions of the day one thing that helps me is to begin making a list of all the good things, because it’s really easy to focus on the bad.
As long as you use your mind for good thought including self image, your body and soul will follow. A great product that I have used in the past is “The Thinking Mind” available through Amazon. Check it out. Maybe it can help.
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine."
Remember good thoughts are a decision away.
