From Sad to Happy

I woke up sad this morning–low on energy, a tad overwhelmed. Ugh, was thinking it was going to be a long day . . .

Then, I took a spin through some of the blogs I follow and found such lovely, happy thoughts. Literally, I visited these four in a row. They brightened my day and energy, I thought they might just brighten yours, too.

I found a friend
:: celebrating a happy, found thrift store piano
:: relishing doing small things with great love
:: excited to explore a new city and share great blog news
:: reveling in happy stitching

Follow that with these lovely daffodils I spotted on my morning dog walk. I was thinking about the theory that we can make ourselves happy just by the way we think. I thought I just might turn it around today. The sun is shining, the air is fresh, I have many lovely things on which to work. Plus, it’s the first day of spring–so many reasons to be happy.
