Have you ever had one of those days where everything around you seems to be spinning out of control? You feel like having a pity party for yourself and you want to be left alone. At this party, you don't want cupcakes.

I recently was having one of those days. I felt tired both mentally and physically.  I was probably even throwing myself a pity party. I love what Pastor James MacDonald say's about pity parties.

When you have a pity party for yourself, you want to be alone because you don't want someone showing up with cupcakes. It's so true. When you're feeling sorry for yourself, you want to be alone. That is the total opposite of what you should do. Find a friend to chat with, go for coffee.....or a milkshake.

If you have kids, talk to them. I find some of the greatest moments in my life is when I chat with them. It makes me realize that most of my problems are small things and there is so much more in life to be happy about.

The pity party is canceled and the party of life is on. Remember there is somebody, somewhere that is glad you're here.  Sometimes it takes just a moment to make all the other moments worth it. Now who has the cupcakes.
