Listening to a favorite song, taking the time to watch the sun rise or set , drinking a glass of fine wine, calling a good friend or family member who always makes me laugh, lighting candles, taking a bubble bath, going for a brisk walk, eating chocolate, accomplishing one small task around the house, sitting down and hand-writing a letter to an old friend, curling up with a good book, or writing down a list of at least 10 things I did well that day.

Having a bad day = having an anxiety/panic attack......Xanax and of course praying.  I feel "blessed" that my condition can be treated with meds.    I always, I was watching my three dogs played and felt at peace with myself and very fortunate to be here to see them.

Being totally honest with what has got to me that day.  I'm lucky that I have a husband that is so completely supportive and in tune with me.  He doesn't always know how to help but he makes me genuinely laugh, he makes me look at what I can control and what I can't, he makes me see that not everything is of 'life and death' status and is a great shoulder when the 'it makes no sense' tears start to flow.  Sadly I don't believe in God, but I do feel truly blessed to have him and just thinking of that can help lift my day when it is all going wrong.  We have been together for 13 years and married for 6 - and I still get those elated feelings like we just met, not every day, but it is there.
He is the 'sense' in my crazy little world and that keeps me going because I would do anything for him.  I suppose it is like that for people that have kids - you have a bond that you will fight to the death to protect.

Yes, I think prayer is good but prayer for me is just admiring an autum tree obviously something greater make that happen. Nature often lifts me up and I think what am I in the grand scheme of things...just a grain of sand in a beautiful cosmic sea who God truly loves.
