oh no, red.. I don't like those chicken soup books. My idea of a comfort book is a loved novel. And music also works...

What helps me is getting a load of mates together and having a good laugh, either that or chocolate... =D

When I'm feeling low, I get my kids and all my neices and nephews together. And we go out, Movies, Chuck E Cheese, Park, Fishing. Nothing brings your spirits up like the laughter of kids. Plus i'm just a giant kid, I don't like going to Chuck E. Cheese by myself.

When I am down or out of sorts I spend time with my Godchildren. I have 4 of them ranging from 11 months to 15 years. Even though I have never wanted children of my own there are times when a 3 year old can give me a bear hug and tell me she loves me and nothing else seems to matter.

When I have trying times I will use music for a "quicker picker upper". I will dig into my stash of tunes and I wil listen to some music that reminds me of a happier time (a great date, fun outing, picnic). It seems to work for me more times than not.

For me, I just figure that no matter how bad I think I have it, someone else is having a worse life and some other person THINKS theirs is worse. Just got to suck it up, that's the high school jock in me coming out, and go on. I also know, thanks to my dad's saying, that it beats the alternative. NOT LIVING!!

There are probably lots of things that help cheer me up even without my noticing, but the one thing I know for sure will do that is a book I love. Kind of like a security blanket in book form.
