TODAY I LEARNED: The Dancing Plague of 1518 was a case of dancing mania that occurred in Germany, where people danced without rest for a month straight.
I feel that another visit to the park is needed. Already I’m feeling the effects of the week. It hasn’t been terrible, but the stress is definitely there. How are you feeling today? Does it ever feel like you’re completely alone in what you want to do with your life? I’ve had those days…more than I care to count. It’s hard to crave something that differs from the crowd. Sometimes we’re just different, and there’s nothing we can do about it. Embrace your differences. Make your insecurities your strengths. Overcome the negative thoughts. Be yourself.
I know, that all sounds like the standard stuff. Just another day of babbling about the things we need to do sounds repetitive, but you have to work at it. That’s the thing…if you don’t strive towards being better, you will never get better. You must make the change happen. You have to believe in yourself, because sometimes, all you have is yourself. Not everyone is lucky enough to have people in their lives who are there for them. Some people never get the chance to experience friendship and love. That’s definitely something to be thankful for.
Recently someone reminded me that listing the things you are thankful for in life can help you to be more grateful. Gratitude sparks something within us and helps us to connect with others and resurrect the parts of us that have been hidden in the dark. Giving helps not only others but yourself as well. Give a little more, be a little better, just take the small steps. Lots of random things were running through my mind today. I’m thankful that I can jot them down anytime I want to. I’m thankful that I have such a strong support system. I’m thankful for those people in my life who helped me see the better view. I’m hoping you all have a wonderful day!
Blessed Be )O(
