Be sure to celebrate all your good days and moments

It is important to make a big deal of all the good days and moments that we have. Reward yourself some how, maybe buy a little treat or whatever works for you. By looking for, and recognizing our good moments, we are more conscience of them and will work harder at trying to have those good days. Besides...we sure like the feeling we have when we are up.

There are also many happy children’s songs that might do the trick for you, so find one of those:

Your dog knows

Have you ever noticed how your dog reacts around you when you have blue days? They sense that something is wrong and that you are unhappy. Watch your dog next time and see if she/he will come by you and stay close to you while you are struggling. They are loving and compassionate creatures.

Newly added on Nov. 11:
One day I started to cry and our dog perked up her ears and immediately came over to me, nudged her nose into my hand and layed her head against me. It was almost as if she was letting me know that she was there to comfort and love me.
