Too often we forget that it feels good to feel good! Man, does that sound like a stupid thing to say…or is it?
It seems whenever something goes wrong in our life, we completely throw ourselves into the feelings of anger, sadness, frustrations, etc. We carry these feelings with us long after the problem has passed. We remember them and hold them as we move forward. We tell others about the problem and time after time after time, recount and replay it!
Yet, when the good things happen in life, we smile about them, laugh, enjoy them at the time. Then we move on. There is no long-term throwing ourselves into the feelings of gratitude or thankfulness or joy.
