Feeling down-in the-dumps is not uncommon. But when dejection strikes, it’s time to fire-up your “thought-burners”, experience that mental lift-off which allows your spirits to rise, and mentally soar above despondency. Such action is good for your health.
Let your thought rise.
Four colorful hot air balloons hovered over the Melbourne Cricket Ground. From my 20th floor room, I watched them soar upward and away with effortless ease. This reminded me how to rise out of gloom when our spirits nose-dive.
- Take on board the thought-soaring fuels of hope and gratitude.
- Ignite the spark of hope that exists in thinking to help you rise above negative feelings.
- Fire-up hopefulness and be confident, optimistic, and expectant of good.
- Accelerate your emotional lift-off by allowing gratitude to warm-up your heart and mind.
- Be grateful for the good times you’ve had, and for those ahead. Gratitude prepares you to receive further good in your life.
Believe you can soar.
- Let your spirits soar with the mental energy of firm belief.
- Be confident that “All things are possible to him who believes.” (The Scriptures – Mark 9:23)
- Believe that if others can be happy, then you can too.
One morning, two men went fishing in a rowboat. By afternoon, they were surrounded by thick fog and couldn’t see land. As they drifted out to sea, one man decided to stand up. Instantly his head rose above the low-level fog. From his elevated position he saw the shoreline. They rowed to safety.
- Make the effort to elevate thinking. Don’t stay resigned to negative feelings. Stand up to them.
- Let your thought soar effortlessly above the fog of gloomy thinking.
- Raise your spirits. Expect to “Rise in the strength of Spirit to resist all that is unlike good.” (Science and Health. Mary Baker Eddy.)
