Are you feeling a little blue because of the weather? Do you need a reminder of things to make you happy? Well, look no further. I’ve come up with a list of little things to make you forget that you’re sad and make you happy.
We all get sad once in a while. In fact, lately I’ve been sleeping a lot and trying to avoid the world. I didn’t realize I was feeling depressed until I just started crying in my car one evening last week…and did the same for the next couple of nights.
It’s normal to feel blue once in a while, but sometimes you really need something to make you feel happy again. Sometimes you just need a little pick me up. Here are a few little reminders you can look at that will brighten your day.
