Gratitude for Life

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭17:22‬ ‭NLT‬‬

There have been functional MRI studies that show that positive thinking can lead to “rewiring” in the brain that accounts for better moods.  It is truly amazing that we do have this control of ourselves.  I know that our society casts many unpleasant circumstances upon us, but the way we handle these challenges affects our well being; so, it is wise to count our blessings and express gratitude for them—it keeps us healthy!

Long before SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder—1984) was appreciated, John Denver apparently understood that “Sunshine on My Shoulders makes me happy”!! (1973)
Today is a bright sunshiny day and already I feel better. Soak up the sun, but remember your SPF. Message me for life changing skincare.

In A MOOd

A1A08AE7-6E30-4496-96CF-B219CC2FD268Have been thinking about what causes me to be in a good vs bad mood. There are so many internal and external factors. It seems we live in An Age of Anxiety, which seems contrary to the many luxuries we now have. When everything seems to be going right and a good mood prevails, a single negative incident can create a bad mood. No one wants to be around someone in a bad mood, so perhaps bad moods are good sometimes allowing one to get personal time. Even thinking about this topic puts me in a MOOd😉
