Do you have those mornings when you wake up and feel like things are not going to fall in their proper places?
I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today. And, yes, I pissed everyone off. Maybe you have heard about this saying that you need to have a good mood by 9 in the morning or else you’ll be in a bad state for the rest of the day. Well, that’s exactly what happened to me.
I would own up to my actions earlier this day. I was a dementor who sucked the life out of everyone. I stayed in my room and slept on it only to wake up in a few hours to discover that not much has changed.
I’m such a passionate and emotional person that when things beyond my control happen, I do get upset. I try to do something about it but I can never hide how upset I am. The raised eyebrows and blank stares are surefire clues that I’m boiling inside. Yes, like a volcano waiting to explode.
Before, I try to mask how I really feel. But as I grew older, it was better for me to be transparent than misleading. If I’m upset, you’ll know. I’m no longer the type who puts on a happy face. Well, I try to do that hoping that the pretention would ease its way to reality. I really don’t know. But for now, allow me to relish my anger or frustration.
“Bad Day” by Daniel Powter would be a good theme song for this day. I play it on repeat during a bad day. Weird? We all have our things.
I’m closing the day feeling better. Thanks for a very patient family…and a hefty slice of Yellowcab pizza. I hope that tomorrow will be better. 😉
