Who Or What Sets Your Mood?

November 26, 2012

Does a rainy day set your mood? Does a rejection or acceptance, perceived or real set your mood? In other words, is it external validation that you require?

If we begin each day by being thankful and grateful for the gift of life and all its possibilities, we will curtail the need for external validation.

Throughout the day if you remind yourself  that the gift is given to you to use it for the benefit of one or many, you will have all the validation you need. This is especially true when you utilize that gift and all of your possibilities.

 “Happiness is an inside job.” – William Arthur Ward

“There’s no reality except the one contained within us. That’s why so many people live an unreal life. They take images outside them for reality and never allow the world within them to assert itself.” – Herman Hesse
