Now isn’t that depressing?

Today, of all days, is the day to p**s someone off!

You’re miserable. Why not make someone else miserable?

So when someone says “Good morning”, p**s them off! Respond with something like, “Oh yeah. What’s so good about it? Maybe it’s good for you. You always get all the breaks. I’d be happy to if I had your life.”

When someone tells you what a great weekend they had, p**s them off! Remind them that there are a lot of people who were suffering this weekend. What kind of narcissist are they anyway? Only thinking of themselves.

When someone gets a pat on the back, p**s them off! List all of the reasons they don’t deserve the credit. 

Yes, today is the day to p**s someone off. You’re a nation of one! It’s your duty!

Of course, we’re being facetious.

But have you ever noticed that it seems that some people are so miserable that they can only feel better by making someone else miserable?

That’s not what bigg goal-getters do. They turn winter blues yellow in a different way. They let the sun shine in:

Shed some light on the subject
As we write this post, the sun is shining. Hooray!

However, we’ve had a deplorable lack of sunshine in our area of the world over the last couple of weeks. Lack of sunshine is one of the reasons people feel more depressed at this time of year.

If the sun isn’t shining for you, make it shine yourself. Experts say that a light box or a light visor simulates natural light whereas normal light bulbs do not. They only emit between 200 and 500 lux. You want at least 2,500 lux to simulate sunlight.

Light up your life

Do something special for yourself today. Give yourself a little treat. Get a massage. Take some time for your favorite activity. Catch up with your best friend.

Turn on your heart light

Here’s something we don’t often think about:

Love is a verb. Verbs mean action.

So take action. Do something special for someone you love today. When we get outside of ourselves, we feel better. 

The sun will come out tomorrow
When we’re feeling down, it’s sometimes difficult to remember this.

Don’t let the emotions of today harm your future bigg success. Keep your faith! Stay the course!

Bigg success comes one day at a time. Focus on what you must do today to build the life of your dreams.

Before you know it, you’ll be walking on sunshine.

    Well, George and Mary-Lynn:

    Hooray to both of you for making me feel miserable with your depressing post about pissing people off!

    Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha. Your post is laced with a touch of humor, which reminds me to share this nugget.

    Since seasonal affective disorder (SAD) adversely affects so many people, how about trying to cheer yourself up? Just a suggestion…

    Watch a funny movie or take a vacation to an exotic location. There are plenty of places in this world where the sun shines bright even though in your neck of the woods your blood’s turning into ice.

    Are you a member of the gym? Well, go swimming. That ought to provide the kind of refreshment you won’t ever find in a movie theater. Swimming is a total body work-out and should make your spirit soar like an eagle in the sky. No doubt about it.

    And while you’re at it, how about good old-fashioned laughter? Call friends over and talk about the good, old days. Do you remember the time Tricia bumped into Todd and both fell flat on the floor? And this was before Janice got hit over the head with a soup ladle from the cackling, nagging witch who lived next door? Stuff like that.

    Let this idea be the first, one bright spot in your morning. Now, that ought to cheer you up, folks!
