Do you suffer from ’Ostrich syndrome’?
Do you know what it is?
The Ostrich is a bird known for covering its head in the sand and believing thinking that it is hidden while everybody else can see its body. We behave like that sometimes as well. We put our head down, feeling that nobody can see us if we do not see him or her. We feel much more ‘comfortable’ in this position, walking around as if we are constantly looking for pennies. Except in this state of mind we are so unaware that we are not able to find anything.
Changing your posture and your style of walking can change your mood for a day. If you get up in the morning and you do not feel like smiling straight away, change your posture at least.
Put your shoulders back, look up to the sky and you will see how quickly you will start to feel different. You will notice as well as lightening your depression this will try to force you to walk a different way, do not stop. Look up, see people’s faces, give a smile and you will be guaranteed a far brighter day.
Any day can be sunny if you do not let the clouds of your condition cast a shadow over your life!
Affirmation for today: I look so I can see where I am going.
