As I wrote last week, I’ve been in a major funk lately. It’s just been one bad mood after another and feeling generally unhappy with myself.
But I found a solution:
1) Force myself to go out
2) Do stuff
And you know what… it’s been helping immensely. How can I continue to allow myself to be unhappy with the world around me when I look around and find myself surrounded by people with big hearts and kind faces, especially that special Mister who tells me he loves me and holds me oh-so-gently.
I can sit around and choose to see everything as bleak and grey, or I can see the glimmers of hope and love everywhere. It’s so easy to find them if I give myself a moment to look.
It’s sappy but true.
Some favourite moments in the past few days:
A beautifully clear day.
A friend recommended this ice creamery he adores. I may not be ice cream’s biggest fan, but it always reminds me of lovely childhood memories of walking up and down the street with an ice cream cone in my hand.
A very cold and windy sunset from atop Sutro Baths.
Fun times with a new friend.
