I feel good (and I knew that I would)

HOW often do you make a decision to feel good? In fact, have you ever made a decision to be or feel a particular way? Many of us have goals that we want to achieve all in the pursuit of feeling good and yet most of us fail to set a goal to just feel good!
In these turbulent times, it is very easy to get knocked off course, and when we are crystal clear about how we want to feel each day and what we want to experience each day, everything else follows more easily.
When you set an intention to feel good each day, you automatically create an inner map that will guide you through all your everyday decisions. Your choices will be based on the criteria of ' how will this make me feel' and 'does it feel good'?
Naturally, this does not mean that you are able to get rid of all the things that may make you feel bad, or that you will feel good in every moment of each day. However, when things begin to get you down you can call to mind your goal or intention that you set for that day to feel good no matter what.
In essence, it's about re - learning what is really important here, it's learning how to prioritise in your life, to seek out of each day the things that make you feel good.
Of course, when you do hit a wall, and no doubt there will be many, remember in that moment that you do have a choice - Whilst you may not be able to control the external situation unfolding, you can control your response to it and how you communicate with yourself and others thereafter. Turning to blame or sinking into a pit of 'why me' may feel like the right thing to do, but will it make you feel uplifted? Will your response be harmful or helpful to living a life of feeling good?!
Setting an intention is a very powerful way to start each day. Intention is the energy that fuels all actions.
To quote Abraham - Hicks ... ' The reason you want every single thing that you want is because you think you will feel really good when you get there. But, if you don't feel really good on your way to there, you can't get there. You have to be satisfied with what is - while you're reaching for more.'
What about you? Will you continue to meander through each day reacting to whatever life throws at you OR will you set a 'feeling goal' - an intention to feel good for the most part of your day?
Maybe you have lost touch with healthy ways that make you feel really good and you now indulge in unhealthy practices that give you a short term feel good factor. Perhaps through life's struggles you have lost touch with how it feels to feel good!
Then start with small steps and practice the art of goal visualization. A simple but potent life skill.
