Today is the most depressing day of the year, apparently.

'Boffins' (what a lovely word that is) have figured out that due to credit card statements arriving and other such factors, that this day, Monday 17th January, is the day when the country's morale is at it's lowest ebb.

Can this really be true?  Surely there are things in your life on this day that are not depressing, somethings may even make you feel hopeful, or loved, or dare I say, happy?

Maybe we can buck this trend, let's decide to be positive, to see the good in the bad, to see the light in the gloom, to see the silver lining in the cloud. 

If you can think of one thing, just one, which causes you to feel optimistic or positive or joyful, then please share it.  Let's remind each other that our mood does not have to be dictated by the money in our pocket or the clouds in the sky. Forget your troubles and just get happy!

The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
Psalm 28:7
