A prayer for recovering “choose happy” addicts – Because we all have bad days
You might not know it if you are comparing yourself to strangers on the internet, but the reality is, that the internet and Facebook aren’t reality.
No one ever feels perfect all the time…
Isn’t that a relief?
I actually get a little angry when I see quotes flying around about “choose happy” and “happiness is a choice.”
Ultimately happiness is a consequence of feeling like we have choices; of feeling empowered in our lives.
Happiness is more likely to flow through you when you aren’t fighting for it. It’s a natural emotion that comes when we feel resourced and whole from within, which means allowing what arises in us to be seen.
And some days, it’s totally appropriate, dare I say it – to not choose happy.
Ironically my life has become infinitely more joyous, peaceful, trusting and loving because I stopped trying to be a positive Pollyanna all the freaking time.
Which is why when you embrace whatever it is that you might be feeling, you move through it more ease, grace and trust.
Now, my “off days” are far less ominous and I feel safe and seen and nurtured. As long as I stay away from “shoulding” all over myself.
I wrote this during one of my voracious journaling periods; kind of like Picasso’s Blue period, the kind where you just give all your crazy over to God on paper or canvas or whatever medium you see fit.
This is a prayer for when you feel lost, off track, melancholy or fear.
