Poem of the Day ~ Song of Hope

Song of Hope 
Thomas Hardy
O sweet To-morrow! –
After to-day
There will away
This sense of sorrow.
Then let us borrow
Hope, for a gleaming
Soon will be streaming,
Dimmed by no gray –
No gray!

While the winds wing us
Sighs from The Gone,
Nearer to dawn
Minute-beats bring us;
When there will sing us
Larks of a glory
Waiting our story
Further anon –

Doff the black token,
Don the red shoon,
Right and retune
Viol-strings broken;
Null the words spoken
In speeches of rueing,
The night cloud is hueing,
To-morrow shines soon –
Shines soon!

Feeling Good Tip of the Day ~ Is It Time for a Joy-Filled Break?

Simple Tips to Feel Better

“If you’re feeling down, simple activities like going for a walk in nature, petting a dog or cat, kissing a loved one, and yes, even forcing yourself to smile, can help those neurotransmitters do their job and raise your mood.” Source

NOTE: Step one to feeling better is to stop doing what you are doing if you’re feeling down. Take a ten minute joy-filled break and do something that brings you joy (the above quote offers great suggestions).  When you get back to work, you feel energized and more alive. The folks around may wonder what’s wrong, and ask, “Why are you smiling?”
