Warm greetings, friends.
Well, me too. In fact, my generally lovely life has been sprinkled with crappy moments and blah days more often lately. I have a lot going on, so I’m more prone to these iffy moods – that’s life. ”You’ve got your high roads and your low roads, your smooth roads and your bumpy roads,” as my dear Grandma would say.
When you’re in a positive mindset, that’s an easy thing to remember. In light times, you have perspective. You can see clearly. But when you’re in the midst of a shitstormTuesday, it’s hard to keep in mind the good days you’ve already had.
Yesterday was a shitstorm Tuesday for me. Well, maybe it wasn’t that bad. I was just feeling kinda blah – unmotivated, spacey, negative. Thinking it was a great time to re-evaluate my life, I pondered Zen Caffeine’s success. Or lack thereof, as I told myself yesterday. I seriously considered just shutting down the whole thing, trashing the idea of writing completely, and starting from scratch.
Good thing I had more sense than to make a decision like that on such a crappy day. Despite my melancholy mood, a little voice in my head told me to wait. When you’re in a bad mood, of course you wanna quit. But will you be okay with that same decision when the light comes back on? Leave decisions and deep thought for the good days – don’t take yourself too seriously when you feel at your worst.
Today is a much better day. I feel energized, alive, and positive about the direction my life is headed. I know that this blog is in the beginning stages, and I’m okay with that. I embrace the journey.
Don’t make decisions during negative times – it seems like such a DUH! thing – hellooo, common sense, right? But I think sometimes we need reminders. So that’s my new plan of attack. Bad days don’t get serious thought – they get funny websites and plenty of patience.
I hope you’re having a peaceful day, but if you’re not, remember – don’t decide in the dark!
Peace, love and a steaming cup of Zen,
