Life Hack for Getting Suddenly Awesome: Stop the Little Sadness Before It Gets Too Big

best-books-for-mystics-19

Yesterday, I was driving to my husband’s work to pick him up when I suddenly realized: I am sad today.

Why are you sad today? I asked myself.

I don’t know, I said back.

Lately, I haven’t been listening to music in the car anymore. I haven’t been watching TV, either.

Ever since my baby died several months ago, I have wanted to honor my time on earth by listening to my heart instead, and to the quiet.

And, maybe, to her.

So, if she can hear me, I talk to her.

And so, yesterday, I decided to talk to her.

And something—whether it was her or something else—told me what I wanted to know.

It said, “You are sad because you didn’t get enough sleep.”

And I said, “That’s okay. I will get extra sleep tonight, then.”

And that was all it was.

And for the rest of the day, I felt good.

So. My happiness tip for the day: stop the little sadness before it gets too big.

You’ll be glad you did.
