bring out my cross-stitch or crochet to do!

I haven't done that in a long time, time to start again!

First, I try to figure out why I feel that way.
Then, if my explanations seem feeble, I try to remove myself from the situation by taking a walk. I generally come back feeling refreshed and in a better frame of mind.🙂

I put on a smile and keep it up, even when I don't feel like it. I "fake it until I make it". There's always something really amusing to find in life's situations - even in the darkest times when you have to look for it the hardest. But, the smile trick wins the day every time. It also gives others a gift - and gives myself a gift at the same time. That little spark of happiness I wind up feeling inside turns out to be just as contagious as my dark moods are (which I don't really wish to put on anybody, but which come and go). I suffer with Bipolar I illness and this little technique has been a life-saver for me.

All things are possible.

Try to keep reminding myself that things aren't as bad as they seem and that I need to adjust my reactions to my husband and kids. Force myself to interact in sparkpeople or with friends instead of withdrawing from everyone and letting my funk sink it and take over.

Boy, have I ever been in a funk! Lost all my weight, had a party and then said, now what do I do? I tried to walk away and forget about this place. But, for some reason I still want to go to my Spark page, I feel like I can't survive without tracking all my food, or planning all my meals, or reading all the articles. I need to be on my own now and get out of this funk. I need to be happy about my new weight, but I feel like a big chunk of my life is so different without Spark.

Walk...preferably in a forest! Play in my Garden, or if its really raining...crochet! Call my sister, or hit facebook for pictures of family/friends' current activities. ANd then there are the "other 1000" projects I have that I want to do: old photos, geneology, learn about my med issues,... Occasionally, I even dive into deep cleaning my house---a closet will distract me all day!!

Go outside if possible. Getting outside helps me and a walk really helps me deal with problems b/c it gives me time to think about what to do ,to weigh different options,to pray about it,and sometimes,if I am upset with someone ,it gives much needed SPACE from the person til we can BOTH calm down to talk things out.

In God my heart trusts. ----Proverbs 28:7

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

KNOW that the LORD is GOD.It is HE who made us,And we are HIS;
We are HIS people,
The sheep of HIS pasture.
