Have you ever said that to yourself?
There’s no question there are times we feel things we don’t really want to feel. And it sucks.
If you can relate, you’d probably agree that all you really want is to get rid of the icky feelings so you can get back to ‘feeling like yourself’ as quickly as freakin’ possible!
So is there anything you can do to feel good fast? You betcha there is!
This week’s vLog walks you from feeling icky all the way back to woo hoo!
No matter how you’re feeling, step one to feeling better is acknowledging and honoring your feelings – right where you are, good, bad or ugly.
If you don’t, the icky feelings will linger and even throw a tantrum to get your attention.
Look, it’s easy to acknowledge when you’re feeling good. Because well, it feels good. We love when we feel good so it only makes sense.
But when you’re feeling off, icky, down or even awful, you want to ‘escape’ and get the heck out of there as fast as possible. So you might try to fight your feelings, get rid of them, stuff them or ignore them…just to make them stop.
The trouble is, that only makes the feelings stronger. They well up until you pay attention.
When you then say “ugh, I hate feeling this way, why do I feel this way, what is wrong with me?” you really irritate those feelings and they blow up in your face.
Well, I’m here to help you put a stop to that!
So, step one…honor how you’re feeling. Just admit it and let yourself off the hook.
There is nothing wrong with you. Check this….your emotions are working correctly! Yep, that’s right…I said they are working correctly.
You have an emotional scale…one end negative and one end positive. You will always be on that scale at one point along the scale.
And if you’re in the land of the not-so-good-feeling place, you can pivot and make a shift to turn you in the right direction.
Now for step two…ask yourself, “what can I do to feel a little bit better right now?” (notice I said a little bit better)
Your answer might be something as simple as go for a quick walk, pet your dog, look out the window at a bird, make a cup of hot tea, write a positive affirmation….whatever you come up with, it will be different depending on your mood and your emotion.
Example, if you’re feeling frustrated and stuck, you might need to get up and move so you decide to head for a brisk walk. If you’re feeling low energy, kind of sad, maybe a cup of hot tea while you sit with your dog might feel just right.

There’s no wrong answer if it’s good for you. The effects will be good for you.
And no need to put pressure on yourself to shift from crappy to top of the happy scale…just focus on feeling a little better. Then choose another thing and another thing you can do to keep you going.
You’ll create a shift within you and move yourself back to the positive.
Why does this matter???
Big dreams happen when you feel good.
And that’s the plan here right? To get your big dreams bubbling up and filling your life!
