Daily Motivator for October 18th – Choose to feel

Choose to feel

When you don’t feel like smiling, that’s when a smile will absolutely do the  most good. When you don’t feel like laughter, that’s when a laugh can completely  change your whole outlook.

You do not have to live at the mercy of your feelings. You can choose to be  the master of those feelings and the master of your actions.

It doesn’t matter whether it is easy or hard, reasonable or unreasonable to  choose the way you act and feel. You can do it anyway.

Don’t use your feelings as an easy excuse to do the wrong thing. Use them as  a well-informed guide for doing what is good and right.

Pay attention to your feelings, learn from them, experience, enjoy and  appreciate them. But don’t let them enslave you.

Go ahead, feel life intensely. And make the choice to be in control and to  live with intelligent, positively focused purpose.

Live positive

Live positive

Holding a grudge can get heavy and tiresome. Lighten your load by letting it  go.

Looking for someone to blame for what’s wrong takes time and effort away from  doing what’s right. Do yourself and everyone else a favor, and put your energy  into positive actions.

Being envious of those who have more, just locks you into a mindset of having  less. Rejoice at the good fortune of others, and it becomes your good fortune  too.

If you seek to bring someone else down, that brings you down as well. Seek  instead to lift others up, and you cannot help but lift yourself with them.

If you live with a negative outlook, you’ll find yourself always in a  negative world. Choose instead to see the positive side, and align yourself with  the most favorable possibilities.

Life can be outstandingly good if you’ll see it and allow it. Live positive,  moment by moment, and live very well.
