Last week I was in a bit of a funk, I think it had to do with sending my baby off to school fulltime, but mostly the reason for my bad/sad mood was just a big mystery. Sometimes, there are days when you just don't feel bright and you can't really pin point the culprit. I think (i hope) this is normal for the average person:)
I am a firm believer that you choose happiness in life and sometimes you have to work at it really hard! You must take control of your thoughts and make them positive. I realize this can be easier said than done, but I know the old adage is true that "Practise Makes Perfect"! It takes self discipline but little by little it can be done. You know one of my favorite scriptures is " through small and simple things are great things brought to pass". One small and simple thing that helps is counting your blessings. My friend shared this quote last week that she had read in the paper (article by Betsy Hart found here).
"How would you interact with God differently if you only had today what you had thanked him for yesterday?"
Wow-- what a great thought! I couldn't stop thinking about it and realized I had some improving to do! As I found myself thinking more about my blessings and thanking my Heavenly Faither for them .I felt better! Being grateful and happy seem to go hand in hand, don't you think? Well, I hope your week is HAPPY! I know mine will be:)
