Difficult Day Box #13

**Some of the links on this post went bad, so I'm reposting it with some modifications. Enjoy!
20 Ways to Cheer Up a Difficult Day

1. Forget about praying for yourself and pray for these people instead.
2. Laugh at yourself, or with someone else who is laughing at her or himself. (See
Submitted with photo: "This was one of my many dance costumes in the early 80s. We were doing a theme to Star Wars for this one... but I'm not really sure why this particular costume was being used. Perhaps the cascading tinsel made it look futuristic? The worst part was that when my mom bought the photo package she also purchased a 5 inch button with this photo that she used to wear around."
Submitted with photo: “My younger brother in his ‘awkward yet fabulous’ phase. Please note the following: 1) Western-style shirt with Christmas-star-snowflake ornament…. 2) One exposed skate (just to prove that you’re wearing skates?). 3) Indestructible plastic-frame glasses because, of course, the parents were worried about their child breaking the stylish/expensive ones. 4) Gold lamé fabric bringing out the most unsympathetic tones in the ginger kid’s skin and hair.”
Submitted with photo: "Some people are just meant to shine." 
3. Accept that some things are simply not meant to make sense.

4. Smile.
5. Read THIS ARTICLE and thank God you don't live in Florida. And if you DO live in Florida, just look at the entertainment value of your local news! (WARNING: some stories are more than offensive).

6. Take up a new hobby.
7. Pet a cat.
8. So it's a rainy day. Act accordingly.
9.  Pray.
10. Thank God for not making you a penguin.
11. Can't find a solution? Make one.
12. Indulge within reason. Or without it.
13. Find out who this guy is and join him and his giant bag of Lucky Charms marshmallows for breakfast.
14. Do this. WARNING: All animals can, and probably should, bite.
15. A yearning for yesteryear getting you down? Remember the past for what it really was and be thankful for the small improvements we have managed to make.
(And don't even get me started on the "nostalgic" acceptance of blatant racism. CLICK HERE if you want to peruse more incredibly offensive examples of yesteryear, but it might only serve to make your day worse).

16. Know that somewhere, this exists.
17. And so does this.

18. Get some fresh air.
19. Trust that you can do a better job at whatever you attempt than these poor folks did.

20. Google the word askew and the phrase do a barrel roll (separately, without quotes).
