Pulling the Switcheroo

“We are mesmerized by the shadows of our past, feeding them with mental and emotional energy, we give these shadows the power to swallow our today.” Adapted from Until Today

Sometimes things happen to us that are hard to forget. We get hurt. We hurt someone. We lose something, or fail to get something we had counted on. When I catch myself lost in those negative past thoughts and feelings, I pull the switcheroo. If I’m going to look at the past why not focus on the things that make me grateful. I have achieved, overcame, was rewarded, got love and made others feel nice. By having awareness, taking contrary action and pulling the switcheroo, I can get myself feeling good enough to yell out ‘ILML!’.
