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?
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!
