HI AND WELCOME TO THE MOODLAB!
Remember this song: "Out of the picture" by the Robbins?
In the song the singers' relation ends and it made me wonder...
Wether it's with a person or at work: a relationship that ends means; Change!
Time to reframe!
Do you take that opportunity?
Change is a part of live. It's a package deal.
Cliche, but when you're in the midst of the package deal, it can really feel like you've got nothing to smile for..
It can make you feel lost, sad and alone.. -You fill in the blank there
So here's the thing:
You are in charge of your own reaction!
Basically this leaves you with two options:
1. You can keep looking back and sit around moping (which is actually quite healthy for a little while)
2. Move on...
It's you who gets to decide how you feel.
Don't we all want to be in that mood where you're not so dependent of what goes on around you and you feel in charge. At the steer of your own life?
No matter what goes on around you, it's you who decides how you feel.
So if it's all up to you:
How to get hand back on the steer?
I like to use my camera. It's an excellent medium really:
I get to decide what's in a picture or not.
This is one of the main reasons why I organise Moodwalks.
It's a great way to take out your camera and reframe, giving you literally different perspectives.
Everybody needs to reframe from time to time.
what you CHOOSE to SEE,
determines HOW you FEEL
A Moodwalk so much fun!
I mean, you can sit on your psychiater's couch until you've analysed every detail of all those years gone by, but what would you rather do?
Why not add in the good stuff?
Go out there. Seeing things in a way you've never seen them before?
Wouldn't that increase your 'Appetite for life'?
Yep: change can make you feel 'out of the frame'.
And yes for a while 'nothing's the same' but ending relationships also leave you with a great opportunity to change your view and get you back into the driver's seat.
But -again- no matter what goes on around you: it's you who decides how you feel.
So I'd say: do that moodwalk!
Take out your camera, re-focus, re-frame, add in beauty and find new visuals of how to move on!
And if you wanna join in with me: you're welcome!
There's actually a Moodwalk coming up next saturday! Yay!
