Ever been in a really awesome mood?
The kind of mood that makes you want to run up and kiss every ugly mug you come across (with some flight preference to your preferred sexual preference)
Remember when your uplifting and unwavering good time came to a crashing halt when you came across someone in a total shit mood?
Everyone has seen this, it’s not a fairly tale
Why is it that the people with very poor moods can so easily influence the way we feel? Common sense dictates that these punks with their crap attitudes should take their misery and go play cat’s cradle in the corner until they are ready to come out of time out
That precisely what you need to do in order to amplify your positive feelings, and block out the people around you that may be in avertedly bringing you down
There will always be people who will frown at your positive demeanor. Instead of trying to convert them to the light side of the force, let them be and keep the positive vibes flowing
Laugh at the people around you who simply can’t put a smile on their face. You know the bottom line; life is to damn short to be unhappy, so when in the presence of unhappiness, use it as a trampoline to your next level of joy
I am not saying to ignore all the sad/angry/(insert negative emotion) people, that would be cruel. But we all know with experience that having someone trying to cheer you up when you feel like shit is the absolute last thing you want going on
So let it rest
Understand that at that moment you are in a better place than that person is, and tomorrow you might just switch positions with that road rage driver on the freeway or the snobby coworker who wont shut up with the gossip
By keeping your head up high, you just might inspire a few of those people looking down to change their perspective a bit more to the north
