I’ve had too much of a badtitude the last 24 hours. That’s right, Badtitude. For some reason that expresses how I feel. I’m angry and I’m having a pity party. There are a few things in my personal life that I’m a little unhappy about. It’s nothing major, but I’m working on finding a way to resolve them. In the meantime I have gone from feeling very angry, to sobbing to coming back to my almost normal self.
What I am learning from this badtitude is that sometimes we just have to allow ourselves to go to that uncomfortable zone. We can’t be happy, go-lucky 24/7. For optimist like myself, that is sometimes difficult to swallow. I don’t like feeling down and I’m not one who likes to be angry.
Instead of continuing to wallow in my badtitude, I decided to write about it and share it with my readers. Earlier today I found a post I had written a while back called What I’m Most Grateful for is…Life . I reposted it today because after I read it, it made me feel better and it was a good reminder that gratitude really does help adjust one’s attitude.
The things that I am currently displeased with are not life-threatening or even urgent for that matter; they are things that have been on my mind that I have chosen to put off and now I’m feeling a little pressured to do something about them. Unfortunately it involves another person cooperating with me and that’s what is stirring up my badtitude.
I have read enough self-help books to know that no one is causing me to feel the way I am but me. How we choose to act/react to a situation is our choice. It can be a good situation, it can be a bad situation, or it can just be a situation. So, I have decided to just let the situation “be” while I work on a solution.
