still smiling!

Sunday, August 18, 2013

my husband made me crazy today. Gosh I love him. His anxiety wears me out sometimes though!
I think I have it bad, but then on days like today I realize my anxiety is mild compared to his - it must be so hard to feel that way so often...poor guy.
No details are necessary, suffice to say it was a tough day for both of us emotionally but it ended really well and I'm proud of him for how he got through it so successfully.
You know what made me handle it better, and be a better partner and support to him, than I have been in times past?

Smiling! really. This new smiling kick of mine is really paying off - makes it easier to be lighthearted where I need to be, to be sympathetic, to really feel the love when I need to be feeling it.

Smile therapy - that's my new mantra.

great day.

    Hi there. My old boss used to say that if you walked into a room smiling just about everyone would smile back...and he was right! It works on grumpy kids, husbands, family and friends too :-) Another thing I find that helps if I'm feeling stressed, is to put on some uplifting music (instrumental no vocals) and turn it up a tad. It works for me and just about always makes me feel uplifted. Anxiety and stress are killers, so doing anything to relieve it or lessen it will help you live a longer and healthier life! Long may you live :-) xx
