How A Pair Of Rainbow Socks Changed My Life
Tim Denning

Your article reminded me of my own break-up many years ago, when I discovered my long-term boyfriend had cheated on me multiple times. I was in such a dark place…One day my friend took me to the Disney store and there was a big, bright yellow Flounder plush toy with a huge smile on his face. I *love* The Little Mermaid, and seeing that bright yellow, smiling face made me smile. I brought him home, and then to work, because I couldn’t *not* smile every time I saw it. It was a tangible lifeline…One that I could intentionally look at when I was feeling low to tell myself to embrace happiness. Just like your socks! :D
