Tip#274: Choose To Feel Good Now - 500 Days of Summer

Celebrating my birthday for over 3 days filled me with an abundance of positive emotional energy. It was a blissful, ongoing feeling because of all the well wishes I received (see tip#273) AND my initial INTENTION for choosing to feel good now.

Even my "writing guru" friend helped increase my positive emotional energy by writing about my birthday in her blog. She echoed my feelings that birthdays are a time to celebrate your whole life. And she posted 3 key videos that celebrated different times of my colourful career. See here

I currently feel far from the personal turmoil and angst of many weeks ago (see tip#267). I believe a big part of it was soaking up the 3 fantastic motivational resources I wrote about in tip#271: Getting To The Core. I could feel my self-esteem and self-confidence growing and being more magnetic for more positive energy.

500 Days of Summer

Around those challenging times many weeks ago, a movie-fan I had met at a networking event emailed me a free offer to a sneak preview screening of the film 500 Days of Summer. I believe, on some energetic level, my positive energy magnetized this gift. I knew nothing about this movie and so it was a great surprise to discover a new film that I deeply enjoyed.

This romantic comedy stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel and the story breaks the rules of typical "romcoms". In fact it actually says in the opening narrative that "This is not a love story". What unfolds is a story ABOUT love. The movie was filled with a great soundtrack, emotional scenes and moments that will make you laugh and cheer.

I was on a high long after I left the theatre. I was brimming with positive emotional energy and know that it’s all because I originally had the INTENTION of lifting myself out of that low energy funk weeks ago.

This movie represented that there are highs and lows in life and relationships and that you can always land on a high. It also mirrored my current focus for identifying my core purpose, my true heart's desire and my ultimate passions. You can’t help but feel good just exploring this for yourself!

So wherever you are in your life remember there are always highs and lows. And by making it your INTENTION to do things that will make you feel good you can lead yourself out of your lows. Think about your passions and how good they make you feel. Think about all your supportive relationships that always have the right things to say to you.

You get to choose how you want to feel. Choose to feel good now.

This is one of my favourite posts, Emmanuel!

It IS our choice as to how we feel at any given moment. It doesn't seem like we have that power, but the mind is stronger than most think. Change your mind about something and you switch your feelings, too.

This is a very important life skill that I think should be taught in grade school! :)

I've got to see this movie now, thank you very much, Motivatorman.

And I appreciate the link love! Thank you for sharing with us a little more of you in those videos.
