A little kindness goes a long way

Today has been a phenomenally bad day. Emotionally, physically, even just spiritually.
Things got so bad that my husband left to take the girls to a friend's house to play to give me time to cool down.
After stewing and fretting and cussing by myself for a while, I got up, and went out and mowed the lawn. And after I mowed my lawn, I mowed my neighbor's lawn.
That 90 minute task (a massive calorie burn to boot!) I felt a lot better, and not just because of the physical labor (I do not have a riding lawnmower.) I did a kind thing for a friend, a neighbor who has done many things for me, too. That made me feel better, and now, my life doesn't feel quite so desperate anymore.
Sometimes, all you have to do to break out of your funk is to do something for someone else.
