I’m forcing myself to be in a good mood today.
I have no real reason to be in a bad mood but I’ve been feeling a little “meh” the past couple days.
Things are generally good and I just need to concentrate on the things in the “Pro” column and ignore the “Con”
Everyone I love is healthy
I have a good job that pays my bills
The revisions on my novel (while slow) are going well
I have dear and supportive friends who love me
There’s a guy I like who seems to like me back
But it’s sooooo easy to dwell on the bad stuff
But I’m not going to.
La La La!
Luckily, I’m one of those people who can improve her mood by forcing myself to smile. I don’t know the actual statistic, but something like 50% of people can actually elevate their mood by smiling, even when they don’t want to. Some sort of muscular placebo or something. I don’t know or care how it works, I just know that it does.
So I’m making a point of smiling today. I’m doing it right now. The people around me on the train probably think I’m a little nuts. Hehehe… They’re not wrong.
Anyway, I hope everyone finds a reason to smile today, even if you have to make it up!
