What Have You Done Today

May 30, 2013

I was looking for a good image to "sum up" my day today... and there were plenty with the "finish each day and be done with it" quote from Emmerson... however I felt as if they were too "pretty" to sum up how I feel right now. When I came across this one, I laughed. I needed to laugh. So here it is:


Today was just one of those days. Not sure where it started or why... but I can not wait until my head can hit the pillow tonight. I slept terrible last night which probably played a massive roll in my "bitch-tastic" mood. I dont get a lot of sleep at night to begin with, so when I am up for 2 hours tossing and turning in the middle of the night it results in a pretty horrible day to follow.

Days like today are days that I get frustrated at mundane things. I start to fall back into my old habits. As I said to one of the guys I work with today "Mrs. Optimism is taking a day off." Which is funny by two fold, one, I have NEVER been an optimist. I still think I am pretty pessimistic, I just have learned how to deal with it differently. Two, its just not like me to shut down and be miserable like I use to. That is the old me. In the past year and a half I have been able to shake this kind of mood within a few hours. Today just felt like I was doing what that fly in the picture above is doing... rolling around a big pile of shit and getting nowhere fast.

I do know that I am still trying to find a way out of the mood. I also know that it is not directly related to anything in particular, I just feel today should be crossed off the calendar and be forgotten. It happens. Not every day is going to be roses, sunshine and butterflies. I know that. I just hate the thoughts that go through my mind on days like this. I start to question myself and bitch about things that have no reason to be bitched about...

With that I am going to stop writing so I can just forget about the crappy day and lose myself in my book for a little while before bed. Tomorrow is another day, its Friday and I have a workout and lots of work to get done.

See... being optimistic again already. Would you look at that.
