The Friday Five - Feel Good Style!

Sorry for being AWOL, folks. Life's been rather....tumultuous. I hope to have a post this weekend for everyone.

For now, the Friday Five:

The Friday Five makes its third consecutive appearance after a long hiatus. For those of you that haven't played before, all you have to do is answer these five questions in the comments below or in your own journal (but don't forget to link back here!). The first player of the week will have her or his journal promoted next week. Also, we always accept questions or themes from our players! Enjoy! Last week's entry can be found here.

Last week's first player was Patrick, of Patrick's Place. Patrick is the nicest, most sincere and well-meaning person I've met in a very long time. I first came upon his journal nearly a year ago, and since then he has been supportive and when needed a kind ear. He is always there for you when you need him, without condition. This is a rare thing indeed. And with that, this week's Friday Five

1. What is the one outfit/piece of clothing/accessory you own that makes you feel incredibly good whenever you wear it? Why?

I'm going to have to go with my navy blue suit. I always garner a compliment or two with it, and looking good always attracts some curious looks from the right people.

2. What do you do to make yourself feel better when you're in a funk?

Golf. A round of 18 is a glorious way to let off some steam. Of course, killing innocent civilians in Hitman: Blood Money is also another slightly more violent option.

3. Has anyone ever surprised you in a way that let you know you were special? How?

My former spiritual director would, time to time, ask me to help him with different tasks. These moments were special to me because they couldn't be predicted and opened up a part of him to me that other people never saw.

4. When you are having a "good day," how do you spread the happiness to others?

Smile and look people in the eye. Sometimes it takes a lot to do that on a busy day, even if you feel good. It's a rewarding way to share joy, though.

5. What is one thing that puts you in a bad mood, no matter how good you were previously feeling?

When my PTSD hits me without warning,which it has a horrible ability to do, at any time of the day or night. You can go from no anxiety to paralyzed instantaneously. That fear is so gripping, so real, that sometimes your heart feels like it will burst from your chest.
