It feels good

It feels good to feel good. Why do we forget this? Or neglect it? Or choose to stay in an unhappy state, avoiding the things we know will help us to feel good?

There are a lot of really complicated answers for those questions. Some have to do with habit, some with depression, some with disease, fear, outside pressure. Who knows.

The truth is, though, that we can feel good if we choose to.

I forget that too often. Right now I remember.

So I am reminding you. Go do something that makes you feel good. Not because I said so, but because you deserve it. And because you really do have the power to choose.

This article is good, but the message is better. Keep fighting those inner demons. They aren’t here to beat you, you are here to beat them. It’s terribly hard some days, but every time you fight, you win. Sometimes only a tiny bit, but it’s worth it. It’s a beginning. Fight your fight, and know that you aren’t the only one. Don’t give up. Always keep fighting.

“I want somebody to wake up and brush their teeth and think to themselves like, “Today’s not going to be easy. Today’s going to be a fight, but I’m going to fight.”

Hello

I’ve been thinking for days now that I’d like to write a post. Honestly, I just have no idea what to say. My life is wonderful and awful all at once. I find things to make me laugh and things to make me cry every day. I absolutely hate hunting for a job. Really. It’s exhausting.

I’ve decided to start taking free college courses online. Nothing too serious. It’s  been a long time, and I’m not even sure I can handle the ones I’ve chosen. It’s just Roman Architecture and a nutrition class. Shouldn’t be awful, but I admit I’m a little intimidated.

And, thanks to a friend who shared it on Facebook, I found this lovely post. It isn’t perfect, and it’s a little painful. But it is beautiful. And sometimes, exactly what someone needs to hear.
