Too Many Bumps Or Mood Swings

I’d call any kind of emotional outburst (negative emotions) a mood swing or a bump.

With Corona, I generally get more bumps than usual.

I have made it a practice to take a mood swing or pump moment to calm down and take stalk of my state of mind.

Mental health is just as important as physical health.

Having faith in myself and others is part of my day to day well being.

When I take responsibility for an emotional or mental health problem, I am taking care of myself to do no harm.

I call it buckling in to corona. And I need help and give help to my friends, family and co-workers.

See you in the new normal!

Doing, when it matters most

Be mindful now!

There are many people or peoples that reflect the above image or practice.

Does the message kill the practice or is it the messenger?

Does breathing cause us harm when we fall into the habit of shallow breathing?

The experience of being mindful may be its best teacher, but many students will need a Little Rock and roll to get the message across to them.

Check out the sexy app about being mindful now!

Don’t worry, you will find it if it works for you.

Keep Your Head Down

When someone is trying to knock it off,

Trust yourself and others, but do no harm,

Be patient, don’t lie, don’t give in to hating,

Don’t look too cool or act like a wise ass,

Dream lucid, think straight, but slow it down when you obsess, try to possess or go mental with unrest,

If you can handle fools and accept yourself when you act foolish,

If you can met with success and failure like the same god damn thing…

Risk your money, risk your life,

Keep away from other people’s things.

Push that body,

Push that soul,

Make amends to the brave and old,

Build a willpower with good habits,

Never give into the crowd,

Talk with your betters but don’t forget people you care about,

When you can handle family, friends and people,

When your life follows up on stuff that works for you,

You’ll make a fool of me and be in on the gift to humanity…

Living The Good Life

I reflect upon good and bad and properly use these impressions,

Command my will,

Some say, I have consciousness.

Understand and know, I am conscious.

Shame not consciousness or do it harm,

Here is my strength: I can get what I want and avoid what I don’t want, use the proper impulse, a careful purpose, use a studied assent.

This is my job: to practice living ‘the good life’.

Do No Harm

You can read and put it into practice and journal about it.

You can talk to others about it.

But we really need to learn how to live.

To live is to learn, love, laugh and begin to build a life and a legacy.

With each life built this way, others need not reinvent the way.

But life has up and down and most of us get broken and need time to mend.

It is a challenge to live and do no harm.

We cause much damage to ourselves and others.

When we loose sight of our harm, we do more harm.

It is a big concern for all who strive to live a good life.

The Difference Between Success And Failure

After meditation on two great ideas, there is a third that may shine a little light on a big problem.

First, “The Secret”, by Earl Nightongale may be dated but it was the start of something new, namely self-improvement.

Advice is nothing new, “If” by Rudyard Kipling wrote a poem to his son with the point of view of a concerned human being.

There is also a philosophy that states it is best to define your terms and be specific as possible about your predictive science.

So with this in mind, ‘Success’ is a triumph or a win which is part of an axiomatic idea that strikes through it on the way to failure.

Failure is an attempt at winning something being practiced to produce a desired outcome, but does not work.

Many people advise trying until the outcome, win or success is won. But this is a false impression.

Correlation shows something like a bell curve. Lots of practice for various degrees of success and failure.

So maybe there is something to Kipling’s advice, “If you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two imposters just the same.”

Personal development can also get you on the road to success. Yet, mostly it is education and other forms of work that the correlations show as outcomes.

Many of us suffer and need help along the way to personal improvement or any other form or difference in our outcomes.

Perhaps your outcomes are more alike than you would like to know. A few are successes and some are failures.

To try again is probably in the cards but prepare for the next failure.

It is a normal outcome that becomes an experience to live and learn. So does the success. Preparation works for both outcomes.

Location may vary and resources too, focus on the process, execution and learning from experience is the goal.

Along the way share and accept help that is available and try to do your best.

It’s gems like Nightingale’s ‘Secret’ and Rudyard “If” that make all the difference between success and failure.

Life’s experience is always about both and we are here to live in peace with all the experience that’s part of it.
