  1. Yep, let’s hear it for being childish!!! It’s never too late to have a happy childhood in my opinion.

    This list sounds suspiciously like what I call “my bag of tricks” — what I use when I’m really in a funk to try to pull myself out. But sometimes I just don’t care and give in and just wallow in the misery.

    • I think we have to give ourselves time for both but try and balance it so we actually move forward, 3 steps forward 2 back scenario.

      Sounds like you’re having a tough time, hang in there lovely x

      • I often explain that concept to people — it’s OK to go 3 steps forward, 2 steps back — the overall trend is still upward, and that’s what counts.

        Thanks for your thoughts. Yes, it’s still rough. I think it’s getting better then something sets me off, and I’m crying again… so I needed this reminder today!!

  2. This is a great list and most of them I do too. Thanks for sharing with us.
    Stand upright, Jona
