So I watch 'Good Things Utah' when I'm working out in the morning, and today's message was just for me. I've been feeling a little down lately; perhaps its because I'm trying this cleansing diet that allows ZERO sugar. Perhaps that why I've been cranky?! Or perhaps it's because it's that time of the month (need I say more). Or perhaps it is because this weekend will mark my "would have been" one year anniversary....which has elicited quite a few break downs. Sorry to my mom AKA therapist/best friend/"person I vent too"...I know sometimes you probably want to lock me in an insane asylum:) Anyway, 'Good Things Utah' said that we affect over 200 people with our mood every day! We affect 6 people who in turn affect 6 more people, and so on and so forth! That's just on average; I work with patients, so imagine how many people I have the ability to influence! I decided right that minute that no matter how awful I thought I had it, I have so much to be grateful for and BY GEORGE I was going to be happy about it! And you know what?, somewhere along the road of pretending to be happy today, I actually felt very happy! Smiling is contagious! Try it! You might even fool yourself too!
