I’m going to be quick tonight, I’m writing late and my story is still in full swing. Don’t miss Part 3 tomorrow!
Someone mentioned something earlier today that I was pondering on a bit. This person noticed that I was less than thrilled with things today. The feelings from the past couple of days as far as productivity goes, continued. This person told me that I should try to find one good thing before I went to bed tonight, because no person should go to bed without being able to find at least one, tiny, little bit of good each day.
While this wasn’t exactly what I wanted to hear this afternoon, I suppose it really isn’t terrible advice. People say all the time that your mood basically creates a self fulfilling prophecy. If you anticipate that you’re going to be angry, you’re basically setting yourself up to be angry no matter what. So I guess it makes sense to try to find a little bit of good in each day, even the ones where you REALLY don’t want to be bothered to.
After everything from today, I did get a chance to lay down for 30 minutes or so, and just zone out. That was good. It wasn’t as relaxing as it could have been, but it was still good. I got all zen and centered and shit. Kind of. it was only half an hour.
Now! I’m off to fill my audio/visual stimulation with mindless entertainment for a few minutes so that my brain can shut down before bed.
