locked inside, looking out (this read is not for everyone)

Depression is something that comes out of nowhere, and often it can go undiagnosed.  It isn’t till something unpleasant” happens that we are forced to face something we have not wanted to address.

Did you know.. that at one time if a woman was considered to not be taking care of her husband properly he could have her shipped out to a psych ward for an “attitude adjustment”

What the picture above is showing is a woman wearing a face mask that was part of the conditioning.  It was believed that if a woman saw herself smiling it would become natural… this was often accompanied by shock treatment.  I’ll let that sink it..  archaic ?  I’m sure some of us could really get into this subject alone.

I don’t think a day goes by where I don’t read or hear about some very negative incidents that happen in the world due to “”mental health” issues.  It is all around us, and it begins at an early age.  As a health care professional, we work with many many different forms of “health issues”  .. the unease of the mind & body are constantly surfacing around us. How do we cope, how do we adjust to the unhappiness, dis-ease- and negativity that plague society today.

Life is what we make it.. right?  Not always, when someone is depressed, anxious, and totally bummed out… they are not thinking with a clear health mind.. they are dealing with an illness, something beyond their control.   They are not in this state by choice, they are dealing the cards dealt them.  Whether young, or old, when they are placed in or on a ward that requires safety steps be put in place.  Double sets of doors.   Visitors can come in, and only allowed visitors at times, not just anyone.. Visitors can leave, but they are left behind the locked doors.

The pressures of life are never easy to juggle if you are bombarded continuously with one problem after another. What can we do, how can we help others to cope.. Before we can really benefit someone else.  WE really have to begin with ourselves.  No one, not one person , has ever been without a negative thought, a compelling lure of self-doubt.. or unease about something or someone.  Imagine if those moments had intensified, gotten out of control, IF we had not had someone to speak with, be with, or connect with.

A hospital is a hospital, no matter how nice you dress it up, paint the walls, or clean the floors.  It is a cold clinical environment.  If you have occasion to visit someone in hospital.. the best gift you can bring, is a genuine love and sincere wish for their recovery.  This is a precious gift, unique to you and the person receiving it.  Wrap it with a warm loving hug and a big heartfelt smile.

Love and laughter will fill a bleak room with sunshine, and thought you may think it is not noticed.. believe me, the receiver will feel it, and it will stay with them, long after you’ve left.

God,Nature,TAo, Divine HIgher Power, whatever you call the life-giving force within, is without measure, and without definition.  Love, pure unconditional love is force like no other.   a smile that begins from within and radiates out to the world……………………is awesome.  Share a smile today.  Please... today I missed my chance, I was in an elevator full of people, and i didn’t smile. it is not easy, I will try harder tomorrow.

How do you see the world

Valentine 2.3.14_007

Do you wake up and view the world around you in a positive light?    Are you a half full, or half empty (glass) person?  Or do you tend to see the world through a cloud, or haze that never seems to go away?

Valentine 2.3.14_008

There is beauty in all times of the day or night, and if you are in a mood to find it, there is also gloom and loneliness even doom.  When we give ourselves to God (higher power/TAO) we are blessed with a divine inner strength that helps ground us and travel with us through the many challenges we face in life.  Before we can even begin to find happiness with someone else, or in the world, we have to begin with liking ourSELVES.  To take responsibility for who we are and what we do.

Acts of respect and courtesy are reflections of how much we value others.  We have all heard the expression, “no man is an island” its been around for years, and it has stayed around, because over and over it is a lesson we need to be reminded of.

All meaning in life is arbitrary.  It is not tied to god, family or self unless we define it as such.  Nothing in life gives us meaning in and of itself.  It is we who assign meaning to objects and relationships.

That said, Wake up World!  It is Tuesday, have a happy happy day!   Blessings.. Oyashikiri

Intuition

Do you value your intuition?

Do you act on your intuition?

When a thought pops into your mind, do you suddenly have that ahh HA! moment, in Pl we believe that it is a nudge from a Higher Power…. God is sending a message.  We hear so often “act on your gut instinct”  don’t hesitate, usually your first choice is the right one.  Have “faith”, do it, make that decision, or make that move.  Life is NOW, we really don’t know what tomorrow will bring…  if you miss it, it can’t be replayed, or relived.

Feel the JOY of being in the NOW….. Let Go and Live.   Oyashikiri

Blessings to you and yours, today, tomorrow and always.

Feeling a little off these days

Feeling a little off these days

Feel like you have eyes in your back! Worried you stepped on a crack! Whoaaa, wonder who has your back!
Such days are part of life, we all get them. The trick is to be able to recognize that its just a moment in time, it will pass. A quick pick me up is time spent with God. A visit to the church for a quite moment in a dedicated place of worship. If that is not possible, then sit somewhere, anywhere, and close your eyes. Take a nice long deep breath in, hold it for the count of 3 and then slowly exhale.. Feel your shoulders and facial muscles relax, your eyelids will want to remain closed. Allow yourself to do it one more time, and you will notice your head will start to slowly lean forward. SMILE… You’ve just shared with a higher power. It feels so good and oh so right. Oyashikiri
