I know people who live on an absolute high – day after day and they never take a drug. How do they do it? They get high on life. It’s a simple strategy…but first; let’s look at why people decide to resort to drugs?
A person, who is addicted to drugs or some other mind-bending substance, finds it an awesome high from their desperate, current life – or something that previously happened that they want to forget. The addiction gives them an escape that is like being free. It’s being free from a loss, an experience, a sad life, and actually, anything they want to forget or get away from. They have decided the ONLY way out is to escape reality. The problem is it’s a temporary high and it actually prevents you from living an happy life.
How about a permanent high? Wouldn’t that be better? You can be free anytime you decide. If your reality is not what you want, you have the power to change it. When you are down and out and stuck in slow, negative emotional energy, it’s hard to even believe there is a way to happiness. There is! It all starts with a new habit.
The habit is to letting go of judgment! What ever you see, hear, or happens, or has happened, let it be okay!! (The only exception is if there is a situation where you are being abused or are afraid. Sometimes when you are in that situation, you might get used to that type of high. That is as dangerous as drugs, or more so. You MUST change the environment. Get out or get the abuser out!)
Here’s how to start being high on life. Whatever happens to you, good or bad, simply do not judge, but see at least one good thing in the situation and say to yourself, “This is awesome!” Feel good about that one thing. As you do that, your brain will open to bring you a little more awesome …… and when you persist, pretty soon, you will attract more and more awesome and soon, awesome things you never thought could happen in your life will happen.
As you go through each day, look around and find things where you can say, “That is awesome!” Find an awesome rock, flower, person, something someone is wearing, something someone says, a butterfly, a drink….whatever! There is a lot of awesome out there is you look for it which can give you a high feeling. When you do that, it will grow and grow and eventually, you will be high on life.
