This month we’ve been focusing our practice on hope, we’ve identified it’s not something we can hope for and do nothing about. Hope is often mistaken for wishful thinking, so having a desire, but taking no steps to achieve it. This is the opposite of real hope, which requires action and engagement. People may feel helpless about their personal circumstances or the situation globally, they wish it were different. But do nothing. Hope is needed even more in the dark times, without hope, all is lost.
Since 2005 pseudo science has shown today to be the most depressing day of the year. Just knowing this ‘fact’ makes today one of my favourite days of the year. Blue is also a favourite colour of mine, so things just keep getting better and better. It makes me so happy (and rather ruins the theme of the day) to know this is the most miserable we’re going to feel all year!?
I’m light hearted about it now, but when I had an office job, it genuinely was quite a miserable day. Colleagues would talk about it and really embody the depression. Feelings and intentions are powerful. My colleagues (not especially into energy or the power of the mind) had totally bought into the concept, and… it was dark day for all of us.
If we can buy into that, we can buy into the reverse. So, here’s wishing you a very happy Blue Monday, and I hope you take action to make the best of the remaining 341.25 days of 2022.
