Yesterday I was in a Bad Mood.
I let several things get the best of me. A few things happened that just got under my skin...I got mad at someone that I don't really like being mad at... I let some news of the bad health of someone in my family really get me down...and then I just let it all steam-roll.
You know what I mean, don't you?
I let my anger, and my sadness, and my emotions roll up into a ball and become a big ole "I'm mad and I'm going to be mad at everyone" kind of acting-out.
Forget that most everyone around me was being perfectly good, and Scout was being silly, and the day really was full of blessings...I was just determined to be in a bad mood.
Then, this quote slapped me in the face this morning:
"Treasure yourself enough to be the person you want to be remembered for."
So, Bad Attitude, I'm throwing that back at you.
I don't want to ever be remembered by friends, or family members, or (heck!) even strangers, for being grumpy and unsmiling and ugly. I want to be remembered the way I truly am. Positive, full of energy, loving the people around me.
How about that for a wake up call on this Wednesday morning?
