Getting Rid of a Sad Day

I'm having a sad day. It happens every once and a while when something right off the bat goes wrong. Today it was the fact that something we had planned kind of spontaneously wasn't going to work out after all. I hadn't realized quite how excited I was before the plans got stomped into nothingness and that made me particularly sad about the whole situation. In order to get rid of this sad day, I listed off every possible happy thing I could think of. The result wasn't an all out win, the situation still makes me sad, but at least it's not infecting the rest of my day any more!

Just in case you're having a sad day today too, here is my list of things that make me happy:

  • Puppies

  • The Favorite Coffee House playlist on Spotify

  • My FREE burrito from Pancheros that I will be devouring at lunch

  • My PIC sending pictures of our adorable puppy to cheer me up

  • Looking up right at 11:11 and making a wish

  • All of the exciting things that we get to do in the upcoming months

  • Having a little corner of the internet universe where I can put light into the universe

  • Knowing that no matter what, at the end of my long day, I get to take my bra off, put on sweatpants, and enjoy a couch snuggle with my puppy
