The meaning of striking a chord is something that creates an emotional response. Today, I saw the cartoon from the very talented Harold’s Planet and well, it struck a chord.
It struck me that striking a chord is a message from my Inner Wisdom, asking me to look at what’s causing my mood to be off kilter.
Be it a bad mood, sadness, not understanding why this, or that happened, or life appearing to stink, I’ve found taking it for a walk is a good way to walk/work through the maze of emotional kicks, allowing clarity to bring a peaceful resolution.
I always go walking by myself because I don’t want to offload my negative emotions onto others. Rather than looking at the cause, I’d be feeding and growing the bad feeling’s instead of walking away from them.
Of course there are heart-aches, or problems that are better shared. But I’m not talking about those.
I’m talking about the mood swings that take you away from where you want to be, rather than moving forward with a lightness of being. Where would you sooner be?
