Shake that funky feeling

Most days I am a happy person. I tend to look on the sunny side of things and some people think that is how I am ALL the time. It is not true. Last Friday was one of those not-so-sunny days. I was questioning everything and not liking much. It was a funk and I couldn't just shake it off with good music. I sat at Caribou with a yummy caramel highrise, a notebook and a pen. I first wrote down the things that I want to do, then I wrote down what was missing from my life. This did not help. It made me feel worse. Then I thought "Oh, I'll write down all the good things I have going!" Immediately when I started writing, I could feel my face loosen up and a smile emerge from the inside. My body felt lighter. My mood was changed for the rest of the day. You know, my "good" list was much longer than my "what's missing" list. So yeah, that whole "attitude of gratitude" thing really does work!!

Live. Love. Laugh. Embrace.
