Watch Your Mood

I was listening to a sermon by Dr. Darius Daniels entitled, Mood to Movement. In the sermon, he talked about how your mood (your emotions) can impact your movement. I felt convicted because I immediately thought about past situations in which my negative mood interfered with my movement.

Y’all want an example? Okay, good. I’ll share.?

Storytime: Some of y’all aren’t going to believe this, but I used to go from 0 to 100 in a matter of moments. ?

One embarrassing moment I can remember from about 12 years ago is when I was at a department store and I was trying to purchase a skirt set for an internship interview. Y’all the skirt set was on the rack together and it fit me perfectly. When it was time for me to pay, the cashier told me I couldn’t purchase the items because the skirt and blazer were different sizes. Y’all my mood changed drastically. I went from being excited about finding my interview outfit to immediately being upset at this lady. Shamefully, my mood changed my disposition and everything else. ? Thankfully, my sister was there with me and she saved the day.

Side note: Because of my sister’s calm mood, I was able to get the suit and I was hired for the internship as well! ??

But what if my sister wasn’t there – I could have allowed my mood to impact a moment – which would have impacted my coin flow in college.

I could have gotten the suit without my sister’s help if I would not have allowed my mood to impact my movement and mouth.

Question: How have you allowed your mood to impact your movement?
