Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday, My Darlings!  I am writing this at a moment when I’m in a really, REALLY good mood, so forgive me if it’s a little more animated & energized than usual.

Have you been having a good week?  Gosh, I hope so.  And we want to hear about it.  We always enjoy hearing positive things about our Darlings here in The Dungeon, but we especially love to hear it when we’re feeling happy & encouraged, too…there’s just something about spreading the joy, isn’t there?

Frankly, this week could have just as easily turned into a Moan & Groan Monday. :greeneyedmonster:  And you may have noticed that I’ve only posted encouraging graphics the past couple of Sundays because coming up with a list of things to be thankful for was a little too hard of me in those moments.  (Not that there isn’t always something to be grateful for, but aside from the everyday things—good health, health kittehs, a roof over my head, food on the table…—but I wasn’t exactly walking around feeling chipper. :zombiegirl: )

But the tides have turned (knock on wood), Mercury is out of retrograde (figuratively or literally, I’m not even sure), & there is once again much to smile about! :offtoschool:

This week, I AM HAPPY that a reader felt comfortable enough to share with me that she’s going through a rough time right now. I’m not a therapist by any stretch—though I’d be happy to play one on TV :screamcartoon: —but I was able to offer her support & encouragement. And in reminding her that she’s stronger than she thinks she is, to think positive, visualize good things, & that everything will be okay, I reminded myself of the same.

Those past couple of weeks when all I could manage was an encouraging quote or two had made me forget to think positive, visualize good things, trust in the Lord & the Universe, & that everything works out in the end.  As soon as I stopped being angry & frustrated & feeling down about what was going on, the clouds parted, the sky opened up, & a rainbow appeared.  Almost literally, I kid you not; it was that fast a turnaround. :happywitch:

So THANK YOU, Dear Reader (who shall remain nameless, but if she reads this, she’ll know who she is :cheers: ) for trusting me enough to open up about your current situation, & in return helping me to get back to my core belief that Thoughts Become Things so you might as well make them good ones! And also, to remind myself to be happier than a bird with a French fry…no matter what might be going on around me. :burningwitch:

So how about you?  Are you happier than a bird with a French fry this week?  What good stuff has been happening or putting a smile on your face?

Whatever it is, please take a minute to share so we can smile with you! :givemecandy:

    I am Happy to have the past week off! Fall break!
    BUT..I’m sad because it’s over and I have to go back tomorrow.
    I am Happy that we only have about 22 days until Thanksgiving break!
    I am sad that we have about 22 days until Thanksgiving break!
    I am Happy that my girly just got accepted into her 2nd college.
    I am sad because it’s not one that I would want her to go to…and I’m not ready for her to go to college.

    So..It’s been an up and down week/weekend for me. I enjoyed my time off..but I didn’t get much done. :greeneyedmonster:

      LOL I know exactly what you mean! I didn’t realize you had time off *before* Thanksgiving. But that’s coming up soon, so don’t worry! :monsterbar:

      So did you do a lot of reading & crocheting while you were on break? I’m betting you did. :zombiehand:

      Congrats on girlie’s college acceptance! :offtoschool: I know it will hard to send her off on her own, but she’ll do great! And I’m getting she come home again quite a bit…if she’s close enough, it may even be so much that it doesn’t feel like she’s gone at all. :draccoffin:

    I am grateful for all my healthy, happy animals. I have been in a deep depression lately but they keep me going and cheer me up. I woke up this morning completely surrounded by them. Four cats and one huge dog all curled around me. It took a few minutes to be able to move enough to get out of bed. But I love it.

      I am so grateful for mine, too! They can make us smile at the darkest of time. Even now that my 16yo wants to be carried around & held like a newborn pretty much 24/7, I just baby him every chance I get & think he’s the sweetest thing. Who needs two arms, anyway? :zombiegirl:

    I’m thankful for two weekends in a row where I got to attend awesome writing conferences. Left exhausted but inspired 🙂 Coming home to my daughters’ smiling faces was great, too.

    Such a wonderful post. Thank you, Heidi, for being a positive influence and great inspiration. “Thoughts Become Things” — I wrote that down ?
