Sometimes its just plain hard to let go of the bad feelings and negative thoughts. I let myself wallow in them real good for a few days, then I remembered what I had decided to do. I had to create and act on a positve thought. I called my husband and mustered a cheerful tone and told him all I needed was some chocolate. Immediately I began to feel better and catch on more positve thoughts and actions. It really does work.
Sometimes its the simple act of smiling at someone even if you don't feel like smiling. I've been thinking about a quote I once saw, I don't know who to credit for it.
" If you can't lift the corners up, let the middle sag!"
