    Day 99 of 100 Days of Good Karma.

    I read an awesome blog post, Let the Monkey Off the Chain.  It stuck with me all day.  I’m as guilty as anyone of working too hard to appear like I have it all figured out (and with a smile!).

    Especially in the last 100 days.

    I’ve received a lot of comments from readers about how I’m positive all the time.  I love and appreciate the support (and having anyone comment on my blog at all is ego-stroking ecstasy), but I don’t want to paint a false picture.

    I didn’t get cancer and become magically zen.

    It’s true, my perspective has changed.  But that doesn’t mean I’m a beaming ray of sunshine every day.

    (I can see my husband nodding now.)

    Thanks to the 100 Days of Good Karma project, I actively look for the positive even when I’m overwhelmed and frightened.  But that silver lining isn’t always easy to find.

    I don’t have it all figured out.  I don’t always wear a smile.  I’m not always positive and enthusiastic.

    Sometimes I’m a sodden, depressing mess that goes to bed puffy eyed from crying.  Friday was a day like that.

    Today’s silver lining:  I’ve developed a strategy for bad days.

    My cure for a bad day?

    • a good run
    • a good nights sleep
    • believing tomorrow will be better

    It sounds simple to the point of obvious, but it works.  Especially the last part.

    And if you’re wondering, yes, my cure worked again:  Day 99 of 100 Days of Good Karma was a good day.

    What’s your silver lining today?  I love comments!
