Turn that Frown Upside Down

There has been a quick change in my life this week. I had a long post written about my feelings and what to do but I thought that it was just too much so I went with something a little more fun instead.
Here is what I did to make myself feel better and to give myself time to think.

#1 Take a hot bath and just relax for a moment.
#2 Watch a Christmas movie or anything the makes you smile!
#3 Pour a cocktail!

#4 Go for a walk or a run in the sunshine - get active.
#5 Read something that encourages or inspires you.
#6 Spend some time with a friend that makes you happy... and brings you pizza and champagne.
#7 Count the blessings that you do have in your life!

"I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter."
- Walt Disney

I love this quote that I found. I always try to be optimistic and to share it with others no matter what happens. But it is also important to be prepared - "luck is when preparedness meets opportunity!"
