There is resistance everytime I actively choose to switch from being down or negative to being positive. It works , but I catch myself thinking ‘but this positivity is not real because I created it, it is fake’. After thinking about that I have the opinion that every emotion is the result of a mind state. An event in itself carries no meaning until mind adds a story, so one could say that every emotion is fake. This morning I was feeling a bit down and didn’t even know why so I chose to be positive (happy is too strong a term) and be curious to what the day will bring. Just an open and positive attitude. It takes conscious effort though to maintain this attitude but that is something that I’m working on now.
