    Turn A Terrible Day Into A Great A One

    Good Coping Mechanism

    Life is tough. Through it all I always yearn to be happy. Lately I've found even if I'm having a hard time in a situation, I'll be discussing it with someone and I can't help but make statements about it that are quite humorous. They'll be in agreement too and I'll walk away...

    I Try To Work Through Each Situation Effectively

    This morning I was listening to the squirrels vigorously arguing outside my window.  It reminded me of a few days ago and a heated argument with my husband.  The argument was just as successful as the squirrels chirping and chasing each other away from the food containers we...
