Do you have that special friend or group that no matter how long it has been, it just feels like yesterday since you were together? Maybe distance, work, or other responsibilities get in the way, but you always have so much to share and just enjoy being together in each other’s company. Sometimes it is just a matter of calling or texting and setting a time and place. Is it time for a real face to face to just get together, catch up, and enjoy being friends?

Is sunny yellow your happy color? Some colors such as yellow can seem to lift our moods making for a happier day. Have you ever noticed how being happy and staying positive is like a beacon attracting others? Maybe not if you are naturally that way. But it’s true! Usually people like to be around other people who make them feel good and are truly interested in them. But some of those folks can also bring you down, leaving you out of sorts, though you may not be able to put your finger on just quite why this is.
How do you keep your light bright? If you are the sunshine person, do you sometimes feel drained as if the life has just been sucked out of you by negative naysayers? Then how do you keep your sunny outlook if this happens too often? It’s by taking care of you.
The first step is to remember it is alright to take care of yourself first; unless of course you have others such as little ones or another that you are caregiving for. But even when caring for others, it is important to do some self-care, so that you can be your best self in giving to others and to keep yourself strong physically and emotionally. Your good and caring nature might be causing you to always put yourself last.
The short list in taking care of yourself is:
get plenty of rest
spend time with those who make you happy
limit your time with those who are constantly more negative and draining (You know who these people are. It is okay to do this and is healthy for you)
Spend time with other happy, supportive, and encouraging people
Always have something to look forward to, even if it is small
Let your self keep shining! Be happy and choose how to make this happen. No other person has the right to make you miserable, unless you allow it. Live as happy as possible and with peace.

It doesn’t seem to matter how long it has been since you’ve last seen each other, it always seems like just yesterday when you get together with good friends! You know, the kind of friends that you have been through thick and thin together. The kind of friends where you can be yourself and that it doesn’t matter if the house is spotless before they come over, because guess what? They could care less! Chances are you have all been to each others houses over time for spontaneous get togethers, to help each other out, hopefully not too many emergencies, and to just hang out. The kind of friends where you share each others secrets, there’s always way too much food, and most of all raucous laughter and joy can be heard coming from wherever you are gathered. This kind of friendship is a gift not to be taken for granted and to be treasured.
