Emotion: Discouraged

Discouraged, a photo by Fergiemoto on Flickr.  (click on photo to enlarge)

Vicissitudes swarm
Thriving on a carousel
Dreams evaporate

Finch:  “What!?  The other birds didn’t leave me any birdseed.  Bummer!  That’s discouraging.”

(Chronic ailments holding you back, leaving you feeling isolated?  Healing taking a long time?  Struggles visit unexpectedly or overstaying their welcome?  Many situations can leave a person feeling discouraged.)  I’m using one of my artwork “tools” again to help address emotions.  See my posting on Addressing Emotional Pain #2 – Tools.

    But you know what, Fergie? That little finch is not going to perch there looking down but about one more millisecond! A lesson on how to deal with discouragement that perks ME right up on many a morning walk!
