How do you feel when there is no coffee? depresso A yawn is a silent scream for coffee.
In the beginning there was darkness. Then God made a good strong pot of coffee and got to work.
No, I’m serious.
For five days I have turned my back on coffee. Was the caffeine troubling my stomach? I needed to find out.
I report to you: this has been a long hard week. Today's journal entry: “Ways to turn around a bad day.” A more suitable title: “How to turn around five bad days.”
The list was long and soulful:
- Remember God
- Go for a walk and breathe deeply
- Journal about what is bothering you (of course!)
- Bake cookies…eat them
- Talk to a trusted friend who will not roll her eyes or dismiss your feelings
- Make a list of your blessings
A quality list...but not the solution to this sluggish day.
A doleful whine kept arising: "What’s wrong with me? Why am I so tired? I’m not usually sad...or low...or so tired." Finding me napping one day my husband feared I was sick. (or depresso)
But….today I found the culprit and he wasn’t even on my list!
The number one way to turn around a bad day: DO NOT let it get started with out a cup of this delicious, dark- brown aromatic brew! An afternoon latte jolted me out of the doldrums.
I am no longer ready to give up! I think I can conquer the world! That book I want to write doesn't feel quite so impossible! I am empowered toward brightness and a positive future!
How could my reversal list omit coffee? It certainly turned this day around.
And by the way...my stomach is just fine. Thank you very much.
