It's amazing how weather really does affect mood. The last couple days have been overcast and/or rainy and cool--like barely passing 50F cool. And I've been feeling low-energy and blah. Part of that might be because I'm fighting a cold, but this morning, I woke up a cloud-less blue sky and bright sunshine, and while it's not exactly warm, the forecast is calling for more seasonable temperatures of low 70s. I feel full of energy and ready to take on the day!

I read a short article this morning in the print magazine from Lumunos that mentioned mantras, and finding some that worked for you. I have a couple of mantras that I like--one of which the author of the piece mentions, Julian of Norwich's "All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well." A couple weeks ago when I was lying awake with anxiety, I lulled myself to sleep by praying that with a rosary.
- "I'm not good/smart/capable/brave/[enter positive descriptive here] enough"
- "Everybody's judging me"
- "I'm fat/stupid/awkward/ugly/[enter negative descriptive here]"
- "I can't do that"
