The cool thing about accepting my negative feelings—telling myself it’s fine to feel that way—is that my focus shifts from negativity to acceptance.  Then I can reach for positivity.

  1. So true. Denying and pushing away negative feelings only makes them stronger. Turning inward to those feelings and asking, “why am I feeling this negativity?” is the way to minimize and move through. That is what I have I have to do to get through the negative tornado that torments me on a regular basis.

  2. Is this a mindfulness ploy? A marketing trick? We all fart in church (metaphorically). If we were perfect, there wouldn’t be a trail of dead bodies from the shopping cart corral to the door.

  3. Thanks for sharing your musings! I do something similar to you. I tell myself to embrace the futility or accept the inevitable, and then I end up feeling better as I let go of things beyond my control (or at least try to).
