When it snowed a few weeks ago.
I’m having a much better day today than yesterday, oh yes I am. I could kiss this day! March 1st, I LOVE you! We have entered into March and I have so many things to look forward to. Like spring and sunshine, for one. Oh and my birthday in a few weeks! Not that I ever do a whole lot for it since I swear it always sneaks up on me, but I do love that day.
So like I said, I’m feeling so much better. I’m realizing more and more how much of a choice happiness is. I know some people suffer from depression and that it’s not really a choice for them, I get that. But for most of us, happiness is just a matter of rearranging our thoughts and throwing out the bad ones. Getting rid of the clutter. The stuff that isn’t serving us or giving us energy. It’s tough to do, really tough. I get so tired of fighting for joy some days, that I give up and let myself wallow because that’s just so much easier to do. Then I have this moment of clarity and start to snap out of it.
I’m still snapping out of it right now. The truth of it is, being sad isn’t helpful to anyone. I’m not less of a failure by dwelling on my failures and feeling even more like a failure. I’m a success if I learn from those mistakes, stand up, brush myself off and choose happiness despite my surroundings and circumstances. So that’s what I’m doing.
I mean, it’s Friday. How bad could this day be? It’s like it knew I needed it and showed up in the nick of time.
A life saver, that Friday.
