A miracle is a shift in perception.

I recently had one of those days where I found myself working overtime
to stop my mind from pointing out all the things that needed but were
not getting my attention. After speaking with my sister, I grabbed my
mp3 player and headed for the treadmill.

After 45 minutes I had achieved the clarity and sense of calm that had
been eluding me. When my sister called me later she was amazed at the
difference in my frame of mind. She demanded to know what had happened.
No, I had not won the lotto – instead I had given myself the gift of
music and exercise.

Music in particular is the most powerful tool in my “Feeling Good
Closet”. We all need such a closet where we keep 3-5 items that can help
pull us out of a slump. Friends may not always be around and if they
are, they can’t do our work for us. So we need to have things that we
can count on whenever we need them.

Whatever it is it must communicate that we matter. Even a few minutes of
doing something we enjoy can create the shift needed to help us look at
life and those around us differently. A friend of mine finds jumping on
her trampoline for about fifteen minutes puts a smile on her face.

I have a couple of good books, a Frasier DVD, tons of music for dancing,
and a treadmill.

What’s in your closet?
