Last week, I was feeling a bit down, so I thought it would be the perfect time to start my first "Things-That-Make-Me-Smile" post of the new year, in an effort to cure my gloominess. But I didn't get very far, because the busy-ness of life interrupted me. And the next day, Chris and I recieved some bad news. There's no need to go into the details of it, other than to say that it was really discouraging for me. I was so down, that I couldn't even begin to think about writing a post about smiling. I only wanted to cry and think about how I was hurt and angry and sad.
I didn't want to pout. But those of you who have tried will understand how hard it was for me to convince my emotions to stop feeling the way they did. Emotions by nature are irrational, and no amount of convincing, cajoling, or chocolate could persuade them to feel any other way. And so I sat in my emotional darkness, waiting for those cruel little guys lose the battle to my sunnier (and ordinarily more victorious) emotions --or at least to show me a little mercy and take a break from their tireless nagging. Well, I'm happy to say that after a week of moping, I had my very first day of good mood-ness. This is a great relief to me, because I hated being sad. And while battle still contiues, I'm glad that I'm seeing more sunshine than clouds lately. And hopefully by next week, I'll be able to share my new "Things That Make Me Smile" post.
