I woke up one day in a "down", sad mood. I was going to work that morning and had to dress up for my job. With the way I was feeling, I believe most people would have chosen dark and drab colored clothing. Believe me, that was my first thought. "Grab your ugliest dress to go with your ugly feelings."
Well, I eventually decided on a fancy red dress. I thought, "Well if I can't feel good, I will at least try to look good, and maybe make someone else feel better." It was amazing how my outlook got better just by putting that dress on.
During the course of the day, many people came up to me and commented on my red dress and how nice I looked. It didn't take long and my spirits started to soar!
Next time you're in a depression, put on a fancy outfit and feel the sadness wash away.
