Sunday One liner ~ 70

When I feel crappy just before I have to go do something, if I decide to act as if I am happy for a while (even though I’m not) I usually end up feeling happy after not too long, or at least much less crappy. ~ Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project.

    This is truly comic. Unless I feel and finish being crappy first thing in the morning, no matter what I do, I will not be happy for the rest of the day till I am done with that particular chore. I bet Rubin is also like that.

      Ramana, you are taking a different meaning from the word ‘crappy’ than I intended. My meaning in this instance was feeling grumpy or in low spirits, I would metaphorically whistle a happy tune. It works for me. EVERY TIME!

    She’s right. You can often alter your mood by simply deciding to do so. You don’t have to wallow in negative feelings indefinitely.

      Nick, I agree. Wallowing in negative feelings, uses the energy necessaryto sort out a problem or improve a situation.
