Do you ever have “those” days?

You know, the ones where the shine seems to have gone off life, or maybe you had an exciting thing happen and now you have the letdown blues? Maybe everything is going wrong, or seems to be.ADVERTISEMENT

Sometimes this can result in getting very down on yourself, and your self esteem can suffer. Add to that the terrible feed of awful news that surrounds us, and it is easy to feel like life is doomed sometimes.

People are wired to notice terrible things, it is all part of our ability to notice and react to stress, the old fight or flight response. A survival technique, we are exquisitely aware of the terrible, the threatening, and the scary things in life.

We also experience all the feelings and that is how it should be, but sometimes with the enormity of all the terrible awful things that happen every day, you can feel like there is no light left in the world.

It is important to put some mute buttons on the news to minimize your exposure to the terror and the tragic, and open your eyes and look around to see the small beautiful details of your every day life experiences. There is so much wonderful in the world and you need to be sure to notice it.

Here are 10 things to do, see, notice and feel — that tell you life is beautiful.
