“If dark and ominous thoughts start residing in your psyche, then you are consciously polluting your own heart and mind ” – My mother in law.
Hello friends, for a full two years very few people can boast that they are not adversely affected by the unfortunate and unprecedented developments, which has almost swamped the mankind. The anxiety and worry about the safety of our near and dear ones has become our constant companion. I am also the victim of the malaise, sometimes I get so worked up by the attack of anxiety that sleep eludes my eyes for the entire stretch of night.
My all determination to instill a strong mettle in me and deal life with courage, goes for a toss whenever any member of my family even sneezes or coughs or have a blocked nose. A whole lot of dark thoughts start rushing in like a torrent and the panic sets in . I was mentioning about it to my mother in law during our telephonic conversation.
As I have told you earlier that my mother in law is my friend, philosopher and guide. Whenever I find myself in trouble I immediately turn to her for solace. The one who is nearing ninety is still my pillar of strength. For such long years of life she had dealt all the happiness and sorrow thrown in her lot with calm determination and strong will. She is more than a role model for me and I consider her a true teacher.
When she told me that I am polluting my mind and heart by harbouring negative thoughts, it led me to ponder, how absolutely spot on she is with her surmise. We become our own enemies by going on worrying because worry and anxiety do not serve any cause other than harming our physical and mental well being.
Feeling low and depressed is detrimental to our physical and as well as mental health. In this tough times we must all strive to keep our sanity intact. I urge myself and you all to dispense with the negative and brooding thoughts and take proactive steps to bring in as much happiness and cheer to us and all around us.
We have to consciously keep our external as well as internal environment pollution free. Like the fumes of our automobiles our dark thoughts are toxic too. Keeping away from both of them as much as we could have only advantages. Why not pledge to incorporate the good habbits in our lives as a resolution of a new year!
I would like to know your thoughts about this. Till then, keep smiling and spread it far and wide.
Stay safe and happy. Adieu for now.
