The Cards

Anh, what’s up with the different colors?

Yellow Cue Cards … use ‘em when things feel fine…

Way back in 300 B.C.E., Greek philosopher Aristotle said, “Happiness is the purpose of life.” I’d venture to say that happiness is also the practice of life. Yes, you can feel merry and gay when splendid things happen to you from the outside, like winning a hot air balloon ride over the Grand Canyon. But you can more dependably be content because of what’s happing on the inside: your habits of mind, spirit, and body. Yellow Cue Cards strengthen your ability to see the glass half full. They build up your happiness immune system, decrease the frequency of feeling bruised and breathless, and equip you so that when the world is wobbling, you are better able to set it right. Yellow Cue Cards help build up your psychological resiliency so you can get back up after hard times with a little more ease.

Blue Cue Cards … read them when things begin to tilt…

Blue is the color for, well, when you’re feeling blue. Or freaked out. Use them when the soggy blanket of despair approaches, when you’re nervous, insecure, or unsure. They can prevent the skid from happening or help you find your way out if you’ve fallen into a deep chasm.

Purple Cue Cards … for the times when people freak you out…

Social Anxiety is the mental health challenge I hate the most. I quiver. My words come out wonky. I am convinced that I am a pathetic freak-a-zoid and everyone is in agreement about it. “Nobody Likes Me, Everybody Hates Me, I’m Gonna Go Eat Worms!” The good news is you can mitigate social anxiety. Here are some party tricks that have not only saved my shaking self but have actually made me feel buoyed by being around people. Cuz really, people are awesome. And YOU’RE a person. So…do the math.

Red Cue Card… when things feel awful…

Red is the color for emergencies, when it all feels like it’s TOO MUCH and you need help now. STOP and CALL or TEXT someone for help. Don’t for an instant believe that the pits are the real world – they are temporary and fixable. There are a gazillion folks who have been there, gotten out of there, and want YOU to be out of there too. Text or call someone now.

Beyond Color… any ole time…

Feel free to just pick a card, whatever the color. A yellow card may do just the trick when you’re about to go to a party. The red card may speak volumes when your life is soaring. You’re the boss.
