Good morning lovely dreamers!
Today is one of those fall days where its cold and rainy outside and all you want to do is cuddle up in your blankets and watch a movie. The sun is hiding, and I want to too! But unfortunately, I have class and other things I need to do today. Sometimes I wish I could just take a sick day from life. Or pause everything so that I could just take some time to rest. College is busy busy busy!
With that said, I am trying to push myself to get out of this funk. I’m going to do everything that I possibly can to turn my day around. I’ll start with some coffee, maybe go see a friend, smile at everyone I see (forcing the happiness really works sometimes), hold the door open for people, random acts of kindness. Basically I just need to get out of my room and into a more productive environment for a little bit.
Another thing I do when I get into these “life sucks today” kinds of moods is making to-do lists. Seeing everything that I need to do all laid out in front of me helps me feel so organized. Plus, checking things off of a list might just be the best feeling ever. That visualization of getting stuff done and being one step closer to a nap is amazing.
Also, music helps. On days like these I listen to as much happy music as I can. Surely if I’m surrounded by a good mood, I’ll eventually feel better, right? Its that fake it till you make it mentality. Hear it till you feel it.
I’ll be the first to admit that sometimes life truly does suck. We all have bad days, but its how we make them better that counts. Its turning the rain into sunshine that makes a difference. One step at a time.
So, there we go. Another rainy day happens and life goes on. Its a cycle. I hope that you are having a exponentially better day than I am having thus far, and if not, I hope you are able to find some ray of sunlight to make it better. If worst comes to worst, go buy yourself some chocolate and make your taste buds happy.
I hope you have a marvelous rest of the day and I’ll be back on Saturday with another post!
Peace out, enjoy life, and live the adventure!
