Choo choo choose to be happy Monday

Husband efforts to make me smile. It's ok that's only January.
I wasn't feeling particularly happy today. Some days, I just wake up with anxiety, and can't seem to shake it. Though I'm normally good at keeping things on the inside (not that that's a good thing), my off day was visible, and two different people asked me why I was sad. It's a tough question to answer when the only thing I can say is "I don't know, I'm just not happy at the moment, but check back later."

What really helps on these off days is having a partner who doesn't let me wallow in self-pity. I am often the girl with the nail in her head in this video, and my husband is always quick to point out solutions and the bright side.  Occasionally I find this annoying, and wish he'd indulge me, but whenever I snap out of my funk, I'm always glad that he didn't. I'm trying to learn to do this myself - to recognize that I'm just having a bad day and that I can easily turn it around.

So, though today started as a blah Monday, I chose to make it a happy one. Or at least a pretty good one. For a Monday.

I'm getting there.

  1. What is it they say? Fake it till you make it? Glad you have a husband who is supportive rather than critical when you have an off day.
