Okay, I admit, I try to think and be positive. There are days when I figure if I just fake it, it will happen, right? Blah. Somedays I just want to be negative. I just want to wallow in a bit of self pity, drown my sorrows in a bowl of ice cream and wear sweats all day. Is that wrong? I don't think so. If your bad mood persists, then it might be time to seek professional help, but for Pete's sake, there are times when you can just be in a bad mood!
Since my cancer diagnosis I have really tried to embrace life, stop and actually smell the flowers, give in to my poodle's "demands" for attention, and be present regardless of whether I am involved in something fun or in something I just want to be over. (And yes, I am thinking of it today as I write this post because two years ago today I received the, "You have breast cancer" words from the doctor)
