Yesterday morning started fine and then quickly went down hill.
I got up, had my coffee, read some blogs and then got dressed to run.
My run went well. The dog didn't poop where she was supposed to, but she did poop not far from a garbage can at the middle school so I didn't have to carry a plastic bag of warm poop for another 2.5 miles. Yay!
I returned home and checked email. And that's when things went down hill. I had a very unpleasant email from a very unpleasant person who berated me in a very unpleasant way for something someone else hadn't done, which it turned out they actually had.
It didn't exactly put me in a good frame of mind.
Initially, I wanted to be grumpy. I wanted to be pissed off at everyone. I wanted to have a bad day and blame it on the email.
Instead, I decided to attack my day with happiness and kindness. I gave myself 15 minutes to be pissed off. And then I let it go. I read some positive quotes. I joked with my husband. I let rude drivers go in front of me. I smiled at strangers. I held the door for someone in my office building. I let someone go ahead of me at the grocery store.
And you know what? It worked. I chose not to let my day be funky. I chose to do something to turn it around.
It was a good day.
