It’s always a good time

Many of us will be wondering how ‘good’ can exist all the time. Even if it is so, we will be curious to know how to bring more of those ‘goodness’ during our difficult times. Simply put, there are only two things that we come across, which evokes our emotion accordingly; Good time and the bad time.

Well, both exits all the time in a particular ratio, we tend to focus more on the ‘bad’ part when we are in a difficult situation. If we shift focus from our perspective and look at ourselves, we will find that even bad times have some bit of ‘good’ in it. Since it is in meagre ratio when compared to the other, we tend to look at that bigger picture and feel worried, challenged and beaten down.

The ideal thing to realize at these times is to make a small gesture to turn things upside down. Bad times occur because of the absence of good times. That means there’s less positivity in the atmosphere and an overdose of negativity. All it takes to boost up the moment is to increase the goodness ratio and pour a heavy dose of happiness into our bucket of emotions; so that the bad thoughts and feelings overflow and move out of our mind.

How you feel inside is really important and decides the outcome – be it good or bad. Moving out of the present ambiance will bring fresh thoughts and actions. That’s the reason many people rang up their closed ones when they feel low. They bring in a large ratio of goodness and share it with you. As you speak, the transfer of ‘goodness’ is done through encouraging words, love and gestures in lighter moments, which eventually pushes and erases the bad feelings. That’s the testament to the old wisdom - your sorrow gets divided and your happiness gets multiplied when shared with your loved ones.

So what it takes to change your mind and shift your mood? An ice cream? A coffee? A small talk? A hug? A kiss? A pet? A sunset? A chilly breeze? The world has a bounty of things to offer and to make us feel better. Our only task is to spot and seize the right thing. Whatever is yours, go grab it! After all we are here for good.

True. A situation is only as bad as or as good as the way we see it. Just a small tilt in the tables would work out things our way. There are so many ways by which we can stop feeling low, but the saddest part is, one tends to choose the worst available option : sit and lament without doing anything about it.

For me, when there is no one around , Ice cream works best. If there is anyone around, then I would be happy to engage in a conversation!

Nice post. After a long hiatus :-)

Anand, no one can motivate us better than ourselves. Stuff like ice cream, chocolate and other such might give us a quick fix but the feel good factor that is triggered might go away.

Anand, I like coming here just to revive my spirits. Great going.

Joy always,
Susan
