It's not where you go, it's how long you stay there.

I would not trade a day like today for anything. Spring is in the air and with the exception of a few runny noses, everyone is healthy. The best thing is that we get to be outside again without being completely bundled up. Maya is walking now, albeit wobbly. Nicole is starting potty training. Derek's birthday is coming up this April and I'm, well, just enjoying it all. With this weather, I can't help but be in a good mood.

The other day I was watching "Project Runway All Stars After the Runway" and I heard designer Anthony William say this about being depressed: "It's not where you go, it's how long you stay there.  It's ok to be depressed sometimes, because it's gonna happen but don't stay in that place where you become a depressed person. Your gifts will truly make room for you."  

This really hit home with me because like everyone else, I also have my bad days, days when I doubt myself, when I'm tired, sleep deprived and just feel like nothing is going right.  However, I have found that the important thing is to first acknowledge what I'm feeling, without trying to ignore it or be dismissive.  And when I do that, I immediately start to feel better.  Of course if doesn't  hurt to have these lovely beauties always by my side.

When I get into one of my moods, I take a step back, take a deep breath and appreciate the beauty and gifts in my life.  I have to always remember to live in the "now"!  Happy Saturday!!!
