Yesterday, I was in a crappy mood. Read some posts from others about all the things in their lives for which they are grateful*. I usually love this but still, I stayed grumpy. Then, I drove down to the river and went for a walk. Seems one of the tips I read at the Happiness Project does have some merit. Distraction. Feeling blue, negative, sad, lonely? Just connect with one of your passions and you'll get out of that funk. Nature's beauty is one of those things for me. And, really cute kittens don't hurt either.
* I'm often overwhelmed with a feeling of gratitude because I have so much in my life to be thankful for. Life is good. Not perfect, but solidly good.
