How are you all doing? Have you been trying to stay positive or at least find something good in every day?
I have to say, until I got up today, I had been feeling pretty happy. This morning I was okay. I cleaned the house, and a few hours later, I started feeling blah.
I didn’t have a reason to feel sad, but I wasn’t feeling happy. Maybe it had to do with it being pretty outside, yet still so cold.
I was not enjoying my time in the house. I wanted to be outside, but did I want to go through the trouble to go out?
I decided to make myself go outside and absorb some vitamin D. It made a huge difference in my mood. Once I added an extra layer of clothes it wasn’t too cold out.
I first spent time with my cats. Spending time with your pets is great for raising serotonin and dopamine levels. I took their pictures while they enjoyed the sunshine and my company as I did theirs.
Then I found some ice around some moss and photographed that for awhile. Last but not least, I had a little talk with Jesus because it makes everything better.
That is how I turned my frown upside down. I still don’t know why I felt moody today, but I did take steps to improve it. It took some willpower to want to change it. It also took time and energy.
It can be such a struggle to find something positive. Some days you have to try harder. It was so worth it to push myself to find something good today. It’s easy to get defeated by sadness. I feel much happier now, and I can enjoy the rest of this beautiful day the Lord has made.
Thank you for reading, and I hope you find your happiness today!
