an outlook saving the day

Sometimes, there are days when everything seems to go perfectly, and yet I feel dreadful (mentally).  And then there are, on the other end of the spectrum, days when things continuously seem to be going wrong, one thing after the next, and yet I feel, somehow, totally okay (and sometimes even quite good).  Today was one of the latter type of days.

Thing after thing went wrong and went ways I utterly disliked, and I was even borderline crying over some of them (for various valid and ridiculous reasons).  I actually did cry at least a couple times today.  And, somehow, everything worked out such that I’m feeling quite well right now, as I prep for bed at 8:16pm.  I am exhausted.  And I’m doing okay anyway.

One thing I noticed throughout the day, was how I kept honest and open with myself about my frustrations, and I talked through them each time they arose.  ‘This is what I have (this situation).  Now, what can I do with it?”  Sure, I occasionally had the angry and unkind words in response to this inquiry, but I always was able to let them go, and to find an actual remedy to whatever the situation, be it a mental attitude switch or an actual exchange in something regarding my at-the-time circumstances.

So, I am here, freezing my feet and extremities off, wondering if I’ll be able even to function tomorrow after the near-constant beating I received today from my second day ever (first day was about ten years ago) snowboarding.  And I’m okay.

Yeah.  I’m okay.  πŸ™‚
