I was wondering... Whenever you're feeling really down and defeated, what do you do/use to draw strength?
I'm feeling much, much better at the moment, but in the near future I might need to find other sources to help me through some hard times coming up.
Just pointing out that I have good days, too. We all have it tough, and some days are pure hell. But if we keep on putting one foot in front of the other, there will be a lot of days that don't suck, and even days that make going on worth it.
Safe hugs offered to all, to be accepted or declined at your discretion.
I look back at these past few weeks and I am more and more amazed at how far me and my boyfriend have come. It's known that i'm not the type of girl to engage in relationships (Just ask Annie, i'm known to run haha) but none the less...I am coming up on my three week anniversary (hence the "short" part of the title). I have the upmost amazing boyfriend in the whole world who simply adores me. With these past few weeks and all the events occuring within them (an accident, speeding ticket, and not affording college)...my boyfriend has been nothing but encouraging and full of support. Last night he even took me to dinner, and a movie before surprising me with a hotel room. He said it was a needed vacation since i've been so stressed. And it was simply perfect. We stayed up late joking and playing cards. And this morning we got starbucks and spent a few hours at the book store looking at graffiti and tattoos before I had to leave for work. That's my update. My boyfriend is a dream come true. And I adore him.
So this week, it seems there are a lot of us who have been having a particularly rough time, so we're going to shift our focus a bit this week towards the positive.
Remembering the happier parts of life can be really important when we're feeling really down, so this week we'll be talking about our happiest memories. Since many of us can really thrive on positive things, I think it would be great to pool up some happy memories to help get us through the rough parts.
This week's questions are:
- What is your happiest memory?
- What makes that memory so special?
- What reminders of that memory can you carry with you physically during hard times?
