Do you have a guarenteed 'pick me up' for when you are feeling anxious or depressed? if so, what is it- share your best 'pick me up' with us:
Mine is a milky decaff chai tea. soothes the nerves. calms me. And praying helps as well. Using music as distraction- playing my piano or listening to some Fiona Apple/Tori Amos... that calms me and 'picks me up'!
Now how about you, family? (geez its hot here. its beyond a joke......)
Your hot and exhausted friend,

Guaranteed pick me up?

I go to the gallery and go through pages and pages of sweet widdle Puggy-wugs... It fills me with warmth and happiness every time! Oh, how I love Pugs... :)
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.
