It’s OK to be grumpy.
“I accept where I am in this moment” is step 1 in shifting from Grumpy to Happy.
When we tend to our grumpy feelings and when we shower ourselves with love — especially during the inevitable slumps — then the shift takes care of itself. Grumpy becomes Happy. Automatically. No incantations necessary.
This practice — noticing our feelings and loving ourselves no matter what — works because: (1) We don’t get tangled up in the drama and (2) Love solves most “problems.”
