Day 11 – Pissy

pissyOkay – here’s the real authentic deal – I am totally, 100% pissy today.  I’ve walked around most of the day feeling like I’ve been kicked in the gut and frankly I don’t give a damn about much of anything right now.  I KNOW all the right answers – hell, I’ve preached them from this blog – but my mind and spirit are not willing.

And you know what else – I have my preachy inner voice going on – y’all remember the blasted deer from the other day – the one that keeps saying “At Least” – Yeah, your life is kinda sucky right now but AT LEAST it doesn’t suck more.  And honestly, that works most of the time.  I really do try to live a life focused on gratitude and what is working well instead of what is not.

But you know what – today sucked – plain and simple – there are some really sucky things going on…and I’m afraid, and worried, and frustrated, and just so over it all.

So just stop trying to make yourself feel better, said to self.  Not that you have permission to be an ass to others – behave adult-ish- but give yourself a break.  Go ahead, feel pissy, wallow, cuss, you’ll survive.

And get some sleep…thankfully, tomorrow is a new day.

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23
