I’m a glass-is-half-full kind of girl.
I try to see-the-bright-side-shift-my-perspective-look-for-the-bright-side and all that jazz.
But you know what?
Sometimes, you just have a bad day. A bad day. A BAD DAY. Or…. oh my, A BAD WEEK.
And that is where I’ve been.
I don’t like to be crabby here…..online. This is my happy place. This is where I go to for sunshine, where I look for good news….where I share the upbeat and extraordinary. I rarely go (whispers) negative. So, I’ve kind of stayed away.
First it was the emergency vet with the Demon Dog (p.s – both grapes and raisins are toxic to dogs), then there was the car fire (no one was hurt, no one was in the car and thank heavens, the car was not in the garage), then the email disaster….. then there was that, and that, and I have been sick and not sleeping (cue violin) and then my sweet 97 year old grandmother was in the hospital and then more bad news and then other scary news….
Whew. Glad I have all that off my chest.
The truth is….I do believe it is all a matter of perspective. And I am grateful that things aren’t worse. And I do know that there are people who are dealing with far more extreme circumstances.
But it has still been a bummer. And I’ve cried. And I’ve complained. And I’ve slept more than normal.
Because sometimes, you just have a bad day.
(Thanks for letting me vent) *sigh*
