Think about all those times when you struggle to see the good in a situation. Times where you find yourself stuck in a terrible frame of mind and can’t seem to find your joy. Often when persons say something good, it improves our mood. A lot of times, it improves your entire day! You feel warm inside, and your situation seems a little better. However, what happens when there is no one there for you? No one there to dig you out of that gutter. You have to learn to improve your own mood. Be your own light in dark times because sometimes, you are all you’ve got.
When you’re overwhelmed with negative thoughts and life itself, it’s hard to think positive. So in this week’s playtime, we will be focusing on what I’ll call a bottle of light. It will be an ongoing project but doesn’t require much. Let’s get started!
How A bottle of light works
A bottle of your choice is selected and filled with motivational quotes, phrases, and anything you would like to remember when going through difficult times. On good days, fill it with a reminder of that day. When you get positive remarks from persons, write them and drop them in the bottle. In hard times shake out a few, roll them out, and add a little light to your dark.
Make A Bottle Of Light
- Get a small clear bottle.
- Write any thoughts, quotes, or positive reminders on small strips of colored paper.
- Roll strips into small cylinders and apply glue to secure.( add a small amount so that they are easy to pull when the time comes.)
- Add any other decoration that you like to the bottle. (I added a little glitter.)
I didn’t have any colored paper. Therefore, I used blank paper and colored the outer parts. I also used an old sanitizer bottle. That way, I can put it in the sanitizer holder, attach it to my bags, and take it anywhere I want. It can then serve as encouragement I might need to get through the day
