Don't we sometimes become very functional? Getting things done; moving from one task or conversation to another. Our schedule, our routine, our functions, can sometimes dull down our good feelings and positive energy. Thoughts can wander to places that bring us down or allow fears to creep in.
Stopping to take a notice of how we are feeling is a nifty habit. It can, if practiced regularly, really bring on that ideal feeling of the happier woman you want to be for more hours each day. Some people ask God to show them when their thoughts are going in a negative direction. In her book "The Secret" Rhonda Byrne asks "the universe" to give her a warning; some kind of sound, a siren, a bump, to remind her to move her thoughts toward what makes her feel good.
Many of us have been taught to ignore our feelings. This is what some of our parents learned from their own. They were doing what they thought was right. Because of this some of you may think this talk about feeling good is rediculous. What happens when we are taught this way is that we tend to look outside oursevles to attain happy joyful feelings. Starting inside is so much more lasting and less expensive!
If you're not in the habit, I challenge you to check in with yourself three times a day through the week. Let us know how it goes!
