Day-to-day life can wear one down. We have to-do lists pages long. Cars break, loved ones disappoint us, and yet we find the ability to put one foot in front of the other. Where do we get this bounce-back muscle? Can we improve our "get over it" instinct?
One of the best ways to help me keep going when the lights feel dim and I'm stumbling is gratitude. Even when I'm at the bottom, I can normally muster up one thing that I can feel good about. Granted, while wallowing in my mud bath I may get angry at that notion that there's something to be grateful for but I just repeat it over and over again. In that sliver of time, the light shines on me and I feel a little bit better.
So it is important to find that little bounce in your step, that can remind you that this too shall pass. Go for a walk, talk to a friend, or dare to find a little smile hiding around you waiting to be found.
Score I totally found the silly string,
