The Movie, the mood and the motivation

What do you do when you get down?

 Hello and welcome to “Our little Blog Patch” from Ava Holly


So what do you do when you get the “downer”? You know, that feeling of....”BLAH”....

My choice is always a movie, maybe even two. Find that crazy good movie that you love so much. At the end, it changes your whole perspective, makes you have a different feeling, a different mood if you may. You know the old saying, “Curl up with a good book”. Ok, maybe a book is your thing. The point I'm getting at is that you have to make time for you. We all get down. No matter where we are in our lives, we have low points. When we recognize them and take a few minutes or even a few hours for ourselves, our mood changes and our motivation changes. We are all here in a spirit of energy, of purpose. Having no time and always running this way and that, will eventually take its toll on your mind and your physical and spiritual being. If you recognize it now, you can fix it. Don't we all want to make our lives better? It doesn't matter where you are or what you need to accomplish. You can not do it if your body and mind aren't in a good place. This means you have to make time for YOU. You can't say, “Oh I can't afford to do that!” For the world to hear, you can't afford NOT to. Whether it's a book, meditation, yoga, a walk in the park, a sip of tea or , yes, a good movie.....take time for you. You will re-charge your batteries. You will regain your motivation and your spirit will be brighter so that you CAN accomplish all that life holds for you. The Summer is nearing, children go back to school, maybe you go back to work.....whatever it is, enjoy each precious moment you are given. You never know when it could be snatched away from you. In all this, don't feel bad when you are down. Recognize it. Find that escape for only you. Turn off your phone, turn off your computer and just enjoy you. One day, one hour one moment and you can change your whole focus. Try it, you'll be glad you did. As always, you can contact me at www.4astar.com . Just stop by and say hello. I'm Ava Holly and we'll catch you next time in the Patch !
