Bad day - good day

I've been crafting this post in my head these last few days (ok, maybe weeks). About how hard life can be. How difficult mothering is at times. How TIRED I feel most days. Yesterday was a BAD day. I was not the best of mothers yesterday for many reasons. By the end of the day I was in complete and utter despair ... and yet, today was a much, much better day. Just like that -from dark and bleak to light and hopeful (probably something to do with not allowing the consumption of any Halloween candy today). Then I read this blog post: http://thehappiestmom.com/?p=898 (via Soule Momma blog) and it rang true for me.

I have been giving a lot of thought to what makes people positive vs. negative (genetics? upbringing? can you change yourself if you're a half empty kind of person? If yes, how?). I'm reading a book right now call the optimistic child. It talks about how to inoculate children from depression. I've only just started reading it but it is interesting.

So that's it. No ranting and raving today. Just quiet gratitude for a good day.
