…whether you’ve got family drama or someone being really mean to you or it just seems like a crap day. There is one thing and only one thing to do.
Go do nice things for someone else until you feel better.
Does it sound crazy? Random? Well let me tell you it works. I just sat down and sent a few random gifts, emails, and hand written letters to people both close to me and total strangers from the blog world that simply are inspiring me or encouraging or whatever.
These acts didn’t solve the current issue at hand, but they filled me with happy feelings and reminded me that there is a lot to be thankful for, grateful for, and a lot of amazing people out in this world who maybe could use some happy in their day too.
So this is my (semi-annual?) reminder to go out and add to the cheer/happy/good karma and watch how good you feel. When I’m looking for the positive, searching for the good things and focusing on those it makes all the problems, mean girls, and hard parts seem that much more manageable.
Now with my mood back in balance I will go work on the 8493020 projects, videos, and blog posts I have in my head but not yet down on paper!
