Dealing With Downers

Disappointment quote with pic of a puppy dog

Don’t entertain those

Dogged disappointment days

Dismiss and disown

Them from depressing your life

Discuss your problems

Resolve to dissolve

Seek the positive

Discover ways to overcome

Don’t let despondency win

Choka

There’s always failure. And there’s always disappointment. And there’s always loss. But the secret is learning from the loss, and realizing that none of those holes are vacuums.” —Michael J. Fox

Positivity

Cloudy sky, blue sky
Winds of change blow

Trying to chase blues away

Clouds flood the blue sky

Changing it to white and bright

Often change is good

Things take on a better hue

So if life looks blue

Rise up, try to make a change 

Color your world, make it new
