Ever have one of those days where it seems like you could only see the worst in everything?
A lot of stupid, annoying stuff happened to me today, and it made me so ragey.
And a lot of really good stuff happened too, and the fact that I couldn't appreciate those things because all I could think about was the bad stuff made me feel even ragier.
Here's how my day went down, starting with the bad:
Stupid stuff, right? Ironically, I even meditated this morning, and yet it did nothing to improve my mood.
Then look at all the good stuff that happened to me as well:
See, lots of good stuff. Plenty to be thankful for. There are probably even a few things I've forgotten about. I just always find it a struggle to focus on the good parts and not get obsessed with the bad.
Anyway, one of the things that always helps me is to remember that some days just suck. A lot of stupid stuff happens, but it almost always means tomorrow is going to be awesome by comparison.
And in its own way, today was pretty awesome too.
