I want to give you permission to be negative.

Why? Well, sometimes life sucks and things don't go our way. Probably everyone has some stuff to complain about in a typical day.

But in your negativity I want you to practice "SMALL NUGGETS OF NEGATIVITY."

Bundle it. Shorten it. Let it have a start and a stop in your day. Only pet Eeyore for a quick moment.

Don't allow it to occupy tons of emotional, psychological, and spiritual mind space. Otherwise it has the potential to take you off a cliff into a place you don't want to go.

So the next time you feel your thoughts drifting to the negative...allow yourself to indulge in only a small nugget. But nothing more.
