So this morning I woke up feeling rather down. Like little miss Melancholy came and smacked moody all over my face. I haven't been able to shake it much. I'm almost resigned to just let it ride today and hope for a better tomorrow. *sigh*
I will not go back to bed.
I will keep moving at least.
I will wash the dishes & finish the laundry.
I will crochet on my dad's blanket.
I will sweep the house.
I will allow the 'blues' to exist and run its course without taking over the day.
I will acknowledge any negative thoughts, explain to myself why they are not true, and not dwell on them.
I will get dressed in bright colors.
I will stay engaged in this day despite the very strong desire to check out of it.
I'm going to take a shower now and put on some music. I guess Mel will be riding around with me today, and that's alright. She just doesn't get to call any of the shots. Please send up a little prayer of encouragement for me today if you have a second.
