A friend yesterday said to me in an email "Think of a positive thing any time you're going to go onto the negative train. Just, try .... It'll be really hard to do, but sometimes even just trying is enough to do it." Goes along with the making the decision to do a NYE resolution right away, instead of in the future.
So, the best thing about today, right now, is ...
- sitting in a comfortable chair at my computer
- mug of hot tea at hand
- sunshine outside, and a lovely day
- feeling safe, warm, happy, and loved
Cheerfulness, it would appear, is a matter which depends fully as much on the state of things within, as on the state of things without and around us. Charlotte Bronte
