Wrong Side of the Bed
It's easy to wake up on the wrong side of the bed.
For some reason, over the past three months, I've woken up in a negative mood. Through this experience I can definitely tell you that getting your day started on the wrong foot sucks. Okay, "wrong side of the bed", "wrong foot", I'm done with metaphors... for now.
I often forget that joy is a choice that can be chosen every single day. Unintentionally, through letting negative thoughts flood my mind, I often don't choose it. There has to be a way to re-orient myself to feeling positive, encouraged to attack the day. Over the next couple of weeks, I will be experimenting with different sayings and actions so that I can get my day started in the right direction.
