♫ Every day may not be good, BUT...

I woke up and it was sooooo one of those days. I tweeted something along the lines of "I think my patience forgot to get out of bed with me this morning."

After texting a few friends, logging in to Facebook, and emailing a few more, I found I wasn't alone. A lot of people are feeling snarked at, grumpy, impatient, irritated, or behind on their work today.

I've got news for you. It's Friday. All the feelings listed above? Are actually illegal on Friday's. I checked. It's written in the book of "Rules about Days of the Week. For real."

An amazing friend of mine sent me this link, to deflate my irritation and turn my day around: 10 ways to let go and overcome a bad mood. Please read this article. And here I am, uplifting myself.

The Small Things...that I would have missed, had I stayed in a bad mood:

*The opportunity to call a friend for lunch, buy one of her treasures posted on a recent blog (go look!), eat chikin, and get some sunshine.

MY new treasure:

*Watch my youngest twirl and twirl and twirl to my new favorite song, and tell me "Mamma, this is why I want to wear a dress!". Only a few people got that video, but this IS the song she did it to:

*Get completely challenged at work, and actually get enthused to get a good run at a new goal!

*I would have missed the chance to laugh at my parents...sitting at the table, both on Facebook, talking about Facebook, and arguing....about Facebook. Funny, how Facebook is viewed so differently by every single person on it. It's like...our own little room. Don't you dare mess it up, get it dirty, or do it wrong in my room.

*...the smell of horse poop. <---not completely enjoyable but a smell that you actually miss it when you're not around it daily.

So, day, all in all you weren't nearly as bad as you tried to convince me that you were. Nice try. And please feel free to never try that again.
