I have started this post so many times, in my head, on paper, the computer...
Like many people I struggle in the winter months with 'low mood' (and to be honest, at other times too). This is why I blog less during the winter even though I plan to blog more in the run up to Christmas!
I don't think I'm a full blown pessimist but nor am I a raging optimist either - I'd like to change that so after reading this article
(don't forget you can click on the pic to enlarge)I have been listing three things everyday that have made me happy.
Some days I have struggled to find three things, and that's not because good things haven't happened...
Here are some examples of good things that have happened recently:
Breakfast in bed courtesy of Mr B
All of us eating dinner together
Two new magazines delivered
A friend called in to see me at work
Got lots done at work
YB made dinner
Enjoyed Meet and Make
Saw a squirrel in the library garden
New follower on blog
Today's will be:
Received a new magazine
Listening to music (The Beautiful South) on my Christmas present radio and Ipod dock.
Whether or not I'm listening to music is a good indication of how I'm feeling. I love a good sing along but don't play music if I'm really down but I'm going to change that because how could I fail to be cheered by a sing-song?
I'm hoping number three will be that Mr B didn't work late!
How do you cheer yourself up?
This isn't meant to be a glum post but a post about appreciating the little things in life and doing so more. I am lucky to have a lovely family, great friends, a nice job, somewhere safe to live and so much more. I just need to remember it more!
This postcard (bought because I love typography) has been in my kitchen for a year or more, it's about time I took more notice of it!!
Thanks for visiting.
