Friday, February 1, 2008


So this morning I was in the car on the way to work and was listening to the radio. On the station I normally listen to in the morning (Channel 933), they do this bit on Fridays called "Why you smilin'?". The premises is people call in and tell them why they are smiling and that makes other people smile. This morning there was a lady that called in and was saying that she was thankful for her awesome husband and amazing family because she is having a terrible 2008 and they are still standing by her and supporting her. The DJ then said something along the lines of "No you aren't having a bad 2008, just a bad January, and it is now February so it can be over now." What a good perspective. I know it is hard when you are in the thick of hard times to think that it could be over tomorrow, but why not. If hard times pop up all of a sudden one day, what makes it hard for us to think that they won't just end one day. I think when we get in a funk, it is easy to see things through those dark glasses and then continue to stay in the funk. But let's start anew.

Today is February 1st, let today be the first day of your new mood.

:) Smile and it will catch on!! :)
