Happy Thoughts

Comfy Sweats
Living in Seattle can be kind of cloudy, misty, rainy, and gray on occasion. In order to avoid SAD (seasonal affective disorder...aka...not enough sunshine), Phil and I put ourselves on a daily routine of Vitamin D and blue light therapy. While this helps, it's more our nightly walks with our dog, Charlie, regardless of the weather and my list of happy thoughts that helps the most. I began this list when I first moved to Seattle to remind me of all the good in my life and to spark a sense of euphoria on dreary days. Here is most of my list, although, it is always a work in progress.
