    • Melissa...

      Hang in there!!  I’m having one of those days myself today.  I haven’t been like this in a very long time.  I feel like my world is falling apart around me.  Or better yet..I feel like I’m on a raft out in the ocean...trying to stay afloat and every once in a while a huge wave comes and knocks me off or I go under..and I’m dog paddling to stay above water.  It’s just one of those days.  

      I am trying to remind myself today that God is in control here...and I just need to have faith...and let him handle my issues.  It’s so much easier...life that is...when we let go..and Let God!  

      Hope our day gets better!!heart

    • Hang in there! Just know that you are supported. It sounds like you need to destress stat. Ask yourself, “What is the best thing I can do to take care of myself right now?“.

      Take care.

      Mary

    • Melissa - what amazes me is that you are having a bad day...and yet I just read the very thoughtful and wise answer you wrote to my post about being afraid.  Even on your “bad” days, you are still doing so much GOOD.  

      Since I just saw my therapist this morning, let me share a little therapy with you (for a lot less than he charges me!).  Give your negative/angry/sad thoughts all your energy for just a little bit.  Then put them away.  You can take them back out later, but only when YOU decide it is time.  For whatever reason, it works for me.  I hope it helps you, too.  If not, chocolate is a wonderful thing.  heart  Godspeed.

    • Hang in the Melissa and Mary.

      When I find myself having one of those days, and goodness knows I have them!  I remember the “Finding Nemo” movie and I just chant to myself “just keep swimming, just keep swimming.”   And really, how can you visualize a clown fish and say that and not end up smiling?

      And like Dori said, if that doesn’t work, there’s always chocolate.

      heartheart  Hugs to you both!

    • Melissa,
      I hope you are feeling better!  When  am feeling like you I like to read my Chicken Soup for the Soul book.  Also I don’t make any phone calls or write letters until I feel better.  Getting take out and a hot bath have also been known to help.

    • Melissa, I hope today feels better to you? When I’m having such a day I do wonder if I will be over reacting or am I finally speaking up? That slows me down a bit while I think about it. ;oD  

      Hugs,
      Cathie
