Are there any “instant smile” things for you? Things that will just ALWAYS brighten your day, no matter what else is going on? I can think of a few off the top of my head.

  • the sunshine when I can just sit and enjoy it
  • Sweet Child O Mine by Guns and Roses
  • An unexpected hug
  • any hug, as long as it’s not handsy or creepy
  • my brother being nice to me
  • a full tank of gas! (or a clean car)

I just thought it’s so beautiful outside and there are so many wonderful things to enjoy – and although part of me is in a funk- that part doesn’t get to win this morning. It’s okay to hurt. It’s also okay to put on some mascara and say, “God, let’s do this thing!”
