The Blues

1 Comment

So I was down the other day, just feeling blue. No reason. I blame it on hormones and the weather, but that’s beside the point.


What’s the point?… I hate it, I refuse to give in!

DISCLAIMER: My anti-blues weapons will clearly not solve any real problems, but they may eke a smile out of you. And they ARE effective for the no-reason-unhappies.

The Blues Remedy List:

3- A shower and comfy clothes in bright colors. Being clean always feels better and it’s hard to be grumbly and tearful when wearing neon green, orange, magenta, and turquoise. Not to mention those slippers. Soft warm slippers cannot be underestimated. Cold feet would have made Mother Theresa cranky.

2- Put on the dance music. That’s right. Turn off Adele. I know you love her. So do I. But now is not the time for our good friend Adele. We need total pop nonsense, I’m talking high school homecoming sh*t. Glee baby. And while you’re at it, Linus and Lucy by Vince Guaraldi.



1- This one is absolutely key. Reddit’s “aww” posts. This is the cutest stuff on the internet. Certified. This stuff is defcon 80 cute. My hubs hit me with it, and I was defenseless. My bad mood had no chance. Truth.

What works for you when you have the blues?

Author: GlitterThistle

I’m a pragmatic romantic who finds myself decorating things, places, friends and inevitably myself. I love color, texture, and shiny things. I’m a talker. I’ve been an avid traveler and the giver of travel, dating, and fashion advice to my circle of friends for 2 decades. My goals are conversation, creativity, connectedness, exploration, and finding beauty to appreciate. Posts go up a couple times a week. Drop by, leave a comment, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

One thought on “The Blues

  1. What works for me is some tea, a hot cornbag (fabric square thing full of corn that you heat up in the microwave), and a Pema Chodron book (e.g., When Things Fall Apart or The Places That Scare You)!
