Well I’m glad yesterday is over what a horrible day. What happened Woody? I hear you asking. Well actually nothing happened yet it didn’t feel like that.
When I say it was a horrible day, you have to put it into some kind of context, I wasn’t Ill, I wasn’t injured, in fact I was as healthy as can be. Nothing had happened to me. There are of course many people that had a far worse day. Most of my problems were nothing to do with the outside they were all coming from the inside.
Sometimes we just have a bad day , no reason, just it is what it is. Sometimes we wake up in the morning and just feel like we’ve got out of the wrong side of the bed.
Sometimes I feel a bit of a fraud, I mean me the one who writes a blog about calming an anxious mind and yet can’t keep his own mind quiet, what a joke.
So why did I have a bad day yesterday and why is today a good one ?
Sometimes it’s just best not to question these things and just put it down to nothing in particular. Yesterday I just had a bad feeling all day, I felt not at ease it’s hard to really put your finger on it, but what I did notice was how much negative thinking was taking place , all of it made up and catastrophised as negative thinking often is.
Perhaps I had some bad thoughts in my dreams, perhaps that gave me the feelings I was having. Everythought comes attached with its own feeling, my belief is there are 3 main types of feeling attached to our thoughts. Positive negative and neutral. Neutral feelings come with most thoughts , probably most of our subconscious thinking contains neutral feelings neither good or bad. Positive feelings come from positive thoughts and positive thoughts come from what we are experiencing. Negative feelings are the same they come attached with negative thoughts.
Thoughts experiences and feelings seem to be all connected to each other.
Yesterday my thoughts and feelings were negative and therefore my experience of that day was also negative, today is different my thoughts and feelings have both been positive and therefore I’ve had a much more positive day.
My conclusion is that sometimes you feel good or bad for no reason , if it’s a bad day don’t try to follow it, don’t try to do anything with your thoughts just accept that the thoughts will change and along with that the feelings and the experience.
Most of the time we need to distract ourselves when we are in a low mood feeling, do something to take our mind away to a different place. Read a book or watch a movie or do a task that focuses your mind on something else and the mood and thoughts will change.
We are all human we can’t always feel good just like we can’t always feel bad. All we are ever doing is just experiencing our thinking.
Hope you are having a good day
