I always say the words life is full of certainty of uncertainty. Even our emotion and mood can change from sparkling to somber by a passing moment. Ha, not because of any kind of genetic disorder but because of a disorder that could be triggered by a minute detail or instance.
That is how vulnerable a human can be. How we manage to get our emotion back in order can eliminate unwanted and undesirable effects of the negative emotion.
Once I get up in the morning, I open my bedroom curtains to bring in the sunshine into the four corners of my space. When there is light, the saplings of nature rejoice. I, too, rejoice for light brings hope and a fresh start.
On top of this, if you want to enhance life’s meaning, you have to visit Lou Ludwig’s blog each day. I, admittedly, draw inspiration from his words which cultivate the different aspects that can serve us well.
However, somehow, I felt a little bit off today. I wondered if shopping would take the ennui peeking through. I could make up an excuse for the gnawing emptiness. I wanted a new pair of shoes. Maybe.
But again, somehow, something was telling me it was not the shoes. I have to feel better inside. The inside is a complex structure made up of tiny molecules and it is simply unpredictable at times.
I sat back and reflect. What was I whining about? I have a closing today. Be thankful not just for that but for so many other reasons– there goes the voice of reason and sound thinking.
I smiled and thanked the voice. Quickly, I went to my inbox and wrote a short email to someone.
“Dear Buyer’s Agent: It has been a pleasure doing business with you. I am looking forward to working with you again on another transaction. Sincerely, Maria.”
She responded in no time. “Likewise :).”
It was a short response but it made me smile. A simple thing like this can spark a renewed surge of energy. It works for me. My mind has been diverted away from the thought of shopping. But I know, I will come back to that thought again.
In the meantime, this small gesture to show appreciation makes me feel good.
