I had a rough day today; actually it’s been a rough couple weeks, so I thought I’d share something that made me feel better. List five things you fear the most or that hurt you the most. These would not be small or trivial things. They would be the emotions and fears that keep you awake at night. The ones that hold on and never let you go. Mine may not make sense but they are very real. 1) Dropping the ball. 2) Saying goodbye 3) Not getting to say goodbye 4) Fear 5) Losing you Now that you are beyond depressed, think of five things that make you smile spontaneously. Don’t think too much into this. Just list the first things that come to mind. 1) A flower just about to bloom. 2) My kids, first thing in the morning before they are really awake. 3) Dancing to the song ‘I got you babe’ with my boys in the kitchen. 4) Watching my cat try to lick the tip of his tail. 5) Spending time with you. Okay, that’s it. It worked for me, so maybe it will work for someone else.
