Midnight Motivations and Musings # 54…

1460094118485[1]Life lived dancing to the tunes of misery wears out the soul living it.

Yes indeed, our days are not always smiles and sunshine, but the truth is that misery and negativity are barely a head’s turn away and once you give it room, it becomes a permanent tenant and a difficult one to evict.

A lot of  times when I am feeling down, I might brood for a while, but with training my mind to shut off the negative raps, I endeavour not to stew in it by getting engaged in little things that will uplift my mind and take the focus off me.

Not the easiest thing to do at times, but the alternative is worse.

  1. This was such a timely post for me.
    “Life lived dancing to the tunes of misery wears out the soul living it.” – great quote. I am going to use some version of this in one of my poems. Please do not charge me for plagiarism.

  2. So true, it’s not always all smiles but positivity does help. Like the category of your post “Midnight Motivations…” Nice to know when I can’t sleep, I can always drop by for a dose of motivation:-)

  3. My WordPress blog and others I have connected with helps me when I feel the need to stay in my pity. You know how it is said that people do something because they are used to it? Because its all they know? Because that’s what they saw for a long time? Even though it hurts, they still do it because it’s what we know….That is my reasoning for allowing myself to stay wrapped in my pity party. But this blog and many others help pull Me out if a funk. And I am grateful! Baby steps on not staying wrapped up in negative. I will always keep trying to be better for myself


I love it when you decorate my heart with your words..
