I would have written a lot more in the past week, honest. But I have been far too complainy and I didn't want to destroy your happy lives with the frustrations in mine (unless, of course, I called you and told you all of the bad things that happened this week - then I did want to destroy your happy life with my frustrations). I'm trying to keep a positive attitude, knowing that the Lord is just trying to humble me and mold me into a better person. But sometimes it's just so hard to be happy. You know what I mean? Don't get me wrong; the whole world hasn't come crashing down on me.. yet. It's just one small thing after another. And those tend to pile up quickly; when it rains, it pours.
One thing I do to keep up my spirits is sing. Last night I was singing Christmas songs and church hymns in the shower. I felt liberated. Free. The cares of the world couldn't reach me in that shower. And when I got out of the shower, I played Guitar Hero (on medium instead of hard, because I needed a stress reliever, not a stress builder). That also helped. What do you do to help you through your hard times?
