When I'm feeling a little blue because things are not quite going the way I'd planned, I find a reason to laugh! A good joke, a funny email from a friend, an old memory. And boy can I laugh! And the next thing you know, I'm feeling great and back on track. Laughter really is the best medicine!
It's okay to step back once in awhile and just enjoy the moment. Even in tough situations - it's important to smile and laugh here and there. Don't restrict yourself from doing things you love because they're "not important" or because you think you'll be criticized for doing them. Let yourself enjoy life even if you're not at the best place you could be. You only live once - make the best of it.
