I hope I'm not suppose to be working on 'positive attitude' as a challenge because it's not working. I think I did change that challenge to something else....good thing.

It's hard to come out of a frustrating mood what with family, organiziing stuff, heart rate monitors that don't cooperate, housework, etc.

I read somewhere that someone else had a problem coming out of a bad mood. You can't just turn your mind around...I know, self-talk, but when you're in a bad mood, you don't think about doing self-talk, because that is positive and I'm in a negative.

That doesn't help with getting along with famiily either. Seems like sometimes it doesn't take much to set off a bad mood...maybe that is because I'm a moody person...maybe it's just because I was trying ot deal with something that wasn't working out for me and it put me in a funk at the outset of the day.

    OH!! I know exactly where you're at, my friend!! I think we all do. Sometimes... it's just natural to be in the place you happen to be in. For example, you got days of sun, then days of stormy weather. It's natural. We're WAY MORE complex than Cheshire Cat grins all the time. We're multifaceted- like a crystal, and... many of us are- um, sensitive to what's going on around us. We may not dwell in the shadows of moody or grumpy emotions for long, but we will go there. Melancholy is a part of *me* and maybe it is also a part of you. Just accept that you're not ALWAYS gonna' be lil' Miss Sunshine. Some days you may be a storm cloud, or... even a bolt of lightening. It is okay to be you, my friend. ::hugs::

    Hey Courti,

    Has that emoticon stopped following you around? I sure hope so but if not then so be it. You can't have a good day every day, some days you are going to be in a funk and that is all there is to it.

    So hope you can pull yourself up by the boot straps out of it as soon as possible, but if not we are here to give you a few good shoves to get you going in the right direction.

    Love ya sis,

    I did get out of the funk after a while. Even had a good time at a virtual bridal shower on one of my teams. Got way miffed over trying to do something with the computer. Just seems that lately I get mad so easy.

    Yes, that is clever. Witch I could come up with things like that.

    Thanks everyone for your support and friendship. I do appreciate it.

    You must be having one of those days...when you just want to be mad, have a bad attitude towards anything and everything. Those days are going to happen, what you chose to do with them...that is what defines you. Hope you can get out of the funk and put a smile back on that beautiful face of yours.

    Hang in there! emoticon


    PS - we certainly have some clever friends! (Witch-ing you a wonderful Saturday! Good one Claudia!)

    Oh, Courti, hugs for helping lift your mood! I am so sorry that you are feeling this way. You do have a lot on your shoulders. I hope you are getting some help/relief from others, whether family or the county services. Stay strong, dear friend. We're here for you in any way that we can help. More hugs, Becky

    Courti...sorry to hear you aren't in a good frame of mind. Can you do something YOU like that will help lighten your mood? Is what is bringing you down really all that important at the end of the day? I know it is difficult sometimes, but try not to let frustrating things take the smile off your face. You have a lot of positives to hold on to! Let them bring your 'tude back up!

    Witch-ing you a wonderful Saturday! emoticon
