It's true. We spend so much time feeling bad about ourselves, or feeling bad about our situation, or feeling bad about life - even feeling bad about feeling bad! - that we forget to feel good. No wonder we get overwhelmed. And then we go the other direction and try to think positive, positive, positive, and we don't allow ourselves to just feel.
In our society, we're taught to spend time in our heads. It's comfortable there, it's what we're used to. But the thing is, there's more to us than just our heads, and when we don't honor our hearts - our feelings - as well, we suffer. We suffer being overwhelmed, being stressed, being angry, being sad, being sick, being lonely, being unsatisfied.
Sometimes all we need to do when we start to feel overwhelmed is just to sit down and feel. Being overwhelmed is a state of the head. And it's exactly at those times that our heart is calling to us the most. It's calling to us to give ourselves a chance to feel good. To feel good about ourselves. Having a feel-good folder is a perfect way to do that.
Do you have a feel-good folder? Anything can be in it - from your high school accomplishments to your wedding pictures to a list of things you like about yourself. It can have memories and dreams and inspirational quotes - the only requirement is that when you look at it you feel good about you.
Today is about me. Every day is about me. And the more I'm okay with that, the more I honor myself and therefore all those in my life. If I don't love me, I'm not going to be able to truly love anyone else. If I can't feel good about me, I won't truly feel good about anyone else. A feel-good folder isn't vain, it's practical.
Jesus said, "Love thy neighbors as thyself." If I don't love myself, how on earth am I going to love my neighbors? My feel-good folder is about me being a better giver while I'm here on earth, about me loving better, living better, giving better. And that's good. Life is full of simple treasures. Make it good.
