I do a gratitude list every night.

I go for a run or a walk, being outside and breathing fresh air is wonderful.

Search the web for ancestors (finding people who are already dead cheers me up I guess).

Hot bath and a good book, a walk or talking to a friend or my son.

I can’t cheer up, I sink deeper into my sh#@.

Music he’s me a lot. I also like to read really good books.

Start my morning off thanking the good Lord for at least one blessing in my life. If I start feeling down during a day, I take a few “me” moments to reflect on those blessings.

Lately, not much helps.
There is a little mouse which has found his way in. I think it is the same one that came in for one night when it rained extremely hard. He left on his own. Now it is freezing out.
I have resisted evicting him. He probably has a longer life ahead of him than I do.
He seems apologetic about coming in uninvited. He doesn’t bother any groceries at all.
He comes into the livingroom late at night to watch me. I talk to him, and sometimes he runs for cover, sometimes he sits there listening to me.
I guess it just eases thoughts of death for me to know I am letting this little guy take shelter from the cold.

I usually draw for several hours, sometimes I can draw for hours and finish several pieces in a day.

I come to fluther and smile at how silly and primitive some people are.

Patty_Melt's avatar

It would cheer me up if @rockfan would draw something for me.
I love to see how people express themselves through drawings.

Look at good comedy, go outside and take photos, listen to non-sad music, cook, visit with friends, rub dog tummies.

Well, you know…

rockfan's avatar


What kind of drawing are you thinking of? I’d be happy to draw something for you :)

Patty_Melt's avatar

Draw what makes you happy.
Still life,
Hot rods,
People dancing,
Whatever soothes your soul.
I am aquiver with anticipation.

I just sit on my porch with a cold beer or hot cup of coffee. I rarely get depressed any way. As the wise guy said: This too, shall pass.

Zachary_Mendes123's avatar

I ether listen to music, watch funny vines on YouTube, or hang out the window while smoking a cig and thinking about the good things in life.

Judy15's avatar

I like to read stories.
