Bad days, we've all been there. Some days are just gloomy; the weather brings us down, we did poorly on a test, we had a fight with someone or we're just damn bored. Other days are terrible; we feel mad a lot of the day, maybe we're depressed or upset, there doesn't seem to be smile popping on your face anytime soon. Sometimes, that feeling may last longer than we'd like; days, weeks, months.
There was a week where I couldn't find the light at the end of tunnel, and I just continued to fall farther away. A good friend of mine told me a lot of great advice, but most importantly, find one thing that makes you happy. The littlest, dumbest thing that normally gets me to smile and just let it make you happy.
So I did. I pulled myself out of that week I was having and got myself an iced hazelnut coffee, because I sure do love those things. While drinking that coffee, I realized I knew this advice all along, but we just don't know how to take our own advice, and we desire to hear it from others.
Even in the darkest of days, there is something, someone that brings you happiness. You just have to open your mind to the light and dig out what makes you happy on any given day.
What brings you delight? Listening to your favorite music, turned up really loud? What about food, do you have a sweet tooth or enjoy eating the occasional whole pizza? Maybe you love working out, and running that mile or getting buff releases everything built up inside. Movies, writing, spending time with someone you love, venting, a bath, going for a drive, screaming; something simple out there makes you happy!
When you're feeling low and think there is nothing to get you out of bed, think again. Your happiness is still there, it's only buried beneath the shit. Find the happiness! Life continues to go on and so should you.
