Have you ever noticed that when you are in a bad mood, somehow things get worse? Your husband comes home and suddenly he’s in a bad mood as well. Your kids start acting out and not cooperating. The tasks you take on don’t go as you had hoped, and everything just feels miserable.
I don’t want to be the barer of bad news, but when that happens, it is probably because you brought it on yourself. Energy is all around us and the energy that you put out changes the energy of your household (or any location you are in). Your mood will spread out to others and to everything in your surroundings.
That’s why I wrote the article a couple weeks ago about how to change your mood when you are down. Sometimes we dwell in our sorrow or our frustration, but in the end, we are only hurting ourselves and everyone around us more.
Consider yourself a catalyst for everything that happens in your house. Take a situation that you would normally handle one way and handle it differently, and you will create a different result. For example, if you normally lash out at your children when they don’t listen, try handling the situation calmly. Then just make notice of the differences. Be a catalyst for positive energy in your home, and breathe it in feeling it’s peace and serenity.
