Ritual for a Bad Day

Cherry Blossom, by Kirra Jamison

Some days just throw it all at you, and all you can do is go with the flow. Here is my ritual for a bad day:

1. Listen to Joni Mitchell sing about laughing it all away.
2. Look at art that looks back at you. Looking at Kirra Jamison's art is like having a conversation with all the magic in the world.
3. Cuddle your dog after a good walk, and trade your worried human mind for calm dog mind. 
4. Eat the most colorful food you can find.

Music, art, food, love are the things that can reorient your whole day. I'd seek these types of "rituals" out even on a good day, but there's something about having a bad day that makes you cling/take refuge to those things you know to be good for you.
