MOODY

Moody people confuse me.

One day, they are nice, happy even.  Sometimes they are talkative and other days they just look at you like you are crazy for even speaking to them.  They might laugh with you one day and “bark” at you others.

To me, this kind of person is more confusing than that of the hateful person I mentioned in my blog a couple of days ago.

Is it due to a chemical imbalance?  I know that there are truly REAL conditions that are diagnosed, but if that is not the case, what is it?  Is it the breakfast they consumed?  The weather?  The circumstances of their morning.  A word someone spoke?  A look?  What they are wearing!?  Even though a definite reason might be pinpointed (besides a chemical problem which I don’t understand either because I’m not a doc) — I still think I’d be confused.

I guess it’s because I don’t think like that.  I do get in a funk mood at times.  Truth be told, today is kind of funky for me.  I’m getting things done, but I feel overwhelmed.  It’s not because of my classes.  My students are being awesome.  They are working and doing great things in class.  I have other things on my desk that need to be done.  I need to send things off and meet future deadlines.  I am a little anxious about upcoming projects.  But I can’t really tell you EXACTLY why I’m feeling funky.  I just do.

But here’s the difference between me and the moody people I come across…

Unless you are reading this blog, are my best friend or my husband–you would never know I’m in a funky mood.  I might be a little more quiet than I usually am or I might  walk a little slower, but for the most part, I still talk, I still smile, I still walk and work.  Why is it so hard for some to battle through a bad mood?  (minus the chemical thing)

Do they see no hope?  Are they not able to look at their circumstance and recognize that, somewhere, someONE, has it worse than them!?!  It truly is all about how you look at it.

A bad mood can be adjusted by perspective, but some can’t avert their eyes from whatever has made them feel funky.  Once they feel this way, they can’t stop but ooze it all over those around them.  That is the part that confuses me the most.  I shouldn’t be subjected to something that I had nothing to do with.  That seems very unfair to me and again, CONFUSING.

I guess this blog is just to vent a bit about the moody people.  I used to work with one that was about the worse I’ve ever seen so, I am blessed that I’m not subjected to that one anymore.  (perspective)

How to be a HAPPY CAMPER!

(Infomercial voice used here) Hello friend!  Do you want to be a happy camper?  Are you tired of frowning?  Life got ya down today?  Well, let’s go over ways to become a HAPPY CAMPER!  

BECAUSE YOU TOO CAN BE A HAPPY CAMPER!

You really don’t have to go camping to be a happy camper, but you may have to pack a bag.  Your bag should be filled with things that aid in your happiness.  You should always be prepared!  Being prepared to be HAPPY is most important.   Admit it, when you are prepared in any situation, it just makes life BETTER!  So…

Let’s pack our bags full of:

POSITIVE THOUGHTS!

Articles that warm our hearts.

Videos that make us smile even when we don’t even realize it.

Pay it Forward Activities.

SMILES! (essential!)

Notes, quotes and other tidbits that remind us that life is good!

HUGS!

Confetti! (I prefer it over glitter.)

CUPCAKES!

Ok, cupcakes might not be your thing, but I think you get the picture.  Whatever is in your bag, it should be something that will help you and remind you and encourage you.  Never pack your bag full of regret and deceit.  Don’t stash some worry in there.  Don’t wrap up and hide your concerns and woes.  Throw anger and ill-feelings in the trash or better yet,

FLUSH THEM DOWN THE TOILET!  Get rid of all that.

Your road to HAPPY CAMPER-NESS should be easy if you only look to the things that make you HAPPY.

YOUR bag needs to be full of things that put a smile on your face and a skip in your step!

I promise you, when you can BE PREPARED to be happy…it’s so much easier.

AND YOU TOO CAN BE A HAPPY CAMPER!

An idea: I keep a HAPPY FILE in my desk at work.  This file is filled with award certificates, small drawings and notes, cards and even emails I’ve printed out.  They are reminders that I am doing a good job and that I AM LOVED.  If I ever get to the point where I feel as if I am not being appreciated or just exhausted over life in general, I whip out this file.  Most of the times it makes me cry, but it breaks down the funkiness I have somehow built and paves the road to sunshine again!  I love my HAPPY FILE—it keeps me prepared and always ready to be a HAPPY CAMPER!

I love creating. I’m pretty sure I’ve posted that before. Haha!

This is the cross that I made for my bestie Reagan. I like to create random things, but when I have someone in mind while I’m doing it–it makes it even more fun.
