Things that make me happy... don't always work.

What makes me happy?
Well... how long is a piece of string? The answer... Long or short.

There are lots of things that make me happy, but that's all well and good when we're in place that stress, anxiety and depression cannot touch us.

I love to read and write it gives me great joy, but that doesn't work when I'm having a reading dry spell or writer's block hits me. I've begun at least 4 novels and not been able to finish them, that in itself is a triumph for low self esteem!

My poetry is like my sounding board, it's magnificent to me. All that raw emotion or meandering thoughts given their place. Good work being wasted in my note books. Yey!!!!

So anyway I love to sing but that only works when my emotions are working. Another thumbs down.

Hee hee! The glass isn't just half empty... it's empty!

The point I'm trying to make is - things that make me happy are abundant but the thing we have to remember is, that sometimes we really have to work for that happiness and that these 'down times' will only make us appreciate the happiness we get more.

Be well ... Jittersgirl

I'm missing... can you please find me?

I suppose my stress and anxiety started at a young age, you see I was born into a mixed race/ mixed religion (or lack thereof really) family. Now that wouldn't have been a problem had I lots of friends in the same boat, but I was not given that st...
