I have only ever met one or two people who claim to be that happy all the time. Actually, now that I think about it, I can only name one person. And technically, I don’t “know” her. I can’t remember her name, but I heard her speak at Women’s Conference several years ago and her topic was being happy. She said she was the type of person that was just always happy. Simple as that – she was just a happy, happy person. That stuck with me.
I admit it. I’m not like that. Wish I was…
My emotions are, how shall I say it, a little less “structured.” I remember a period of a couple weeks last year when I had the blues. There were three things that helped to restore a little sunshine to my spirits.
The first was prayer. I kept right on praying – even when I didn’t necessarily feel like it . I prayed that Heavenly Father would lift my spirits. I pleaded with Him to get me through the blues. And…I felt Him near me. I felt His support and the whisperings of the Holy Ghost getting me through.
