Let the Sunshine In

So Julie at …and the rest is history is having a contest–a contest for people to post about how you deal with the gloomies. About how, exactly,your inner sunshine comes out when winter seems to never end.

I would have to say that my sunshine comes in the form of my friends. I find I get the most cranky when I’ve had a hectic week and haven’t had time to actually interact with the people I like the most in this world. And as much as I love the internet, an email just doesn’t cut it. I don’t feel as good after reading or sending an email as I do after a phone conversation or a lunch with a friend.

At this point in my life, it takes extra effort, but it is so worth it to find the time for girlfriends. I make phone calls during my 10 minute commute. I try to meet friends for coffee if I’m out in the evenings. I make lunch dates on my days off with my SAHM friends. And I find, when I do this, my sun just shines like it’s the middle of June, even if it’s 5 below outside!

Go check out the details at …and the rest is history and share how you spread your sunshine! You could win an Amazon gift certificate!

  1. I’m there with you–I just wish there was more time to get it all done now that we all have our own babies and freetime is an almost impossible idea 🙂
