Have you ever thought “What the fuck will my future look like? What the fuck is going to happen? When will I settle down enough to become a fur mama and get an Italian Greyhound?” Maybe not those exact words. You could be a cat person, in which case I would mildly judge you. Anyways, I certainly have thought that.
Sometimes, those thoughts make me curious, creative, and joyful. Thinking about what could be can be exciting. However, there are days where those same thoughts have me feeling as melancholy as Bo Jack Horseman, minus the drug abuse and alcoholism. Thankfully the future currently excites me, but how the fuck can the same thoughts make us feel completely different from day to day, and can we do anything about it?
The answer to the latter is, with practice, yes. I’m not saying by doing the following you will be skipping around like Dorothy down the Yellow Brick Road. That said, there are ways to help. And yes, it’s been scientifically proven, so I’m not talking out my ass.
You might say you’ve heard this before, but bare with me because this blog is still funny af and worth the read. The answer is breathe. Breathing deeply and consciously will recalibrate your nervous system, which will bring you more emotional stability. You don’t need to stop feeling like Bo Jack Horseman, but it will help, so breathe.
Now why do we sometimes feel good about a subject, when the week prior we were walking around like Bridget Jones on a bad day, thinking about the same thing? Well, I’m no saint and don’t have all the answers, but I have an idea. Our nervous system is fucked from our repetitive toxic thoughts or actions that aren’t in our best interest. So breathe, reset, and appreciate your ability to take positive actions.
Ultimately our feelings on any subject have nothing to do with the actual topic and hand. It’s our nervous system which is out of alignment due to our negative emotional state of being. Our state of being is a mixture of our past programming, and our conscious or unconscious practiced habits. However, we also have our freewill in the present moment to choose how we will take action and respond in any given situation. To use our freewill to breath, and practice that habit, we can take back our power. So if you ever worry about what the fuck is going to happen next, just breathe. Wow, talk about getting deep and preachy. But hey, if you’ve made it this far, you must have been entertained, so my work here is done.
