The inspiring thing about Kermit the Frog’s signature song is that while it begins with him being sad about being green (hence the title of the song), it ends with him realizing all the wonderful things about being green. He notes in the song that “…green’s the color of Spring. And green can be cool and friendly-like. It’s beautiful and I think it’s what I want to be!”

Sometimes we get stuck in old habits and don’t realize we could or should be any different. Like Kermit, maybe we are stuck in the rut of thinking negative thoughts. Sometimes, we just need a new way of looking at things. For example, we may assume that things our bodies do that we don’t like  are bad and we label them as sickness. However, many times, those same things are really our bodies adapting to a given environment.

The most frequently used example of this is a fever. No one likes to have a fever, but often it is simply the body’s way of adapting to the fact that an unwanted germ, bacteria, or virus is present. It is how your body attempts to get rid of the “foreign invader.” That is not bad, that is smart! In fact, that’s AMAZING! Remember, our bodies contain trillions of microorganisms, including bacteria, that peacefully coexist.

Another familiar example of your body doing something smart but that you might not like is vomiting and/or diarrhea. Nobody likes to have an upset stomach, however, these events are typically the body’s attempt to rid itself of something bad. Sure, you may not like but it is effective and AMAZING!
