Today has not been a great day:
- I went to the doctor where I waited for more than a hour and then received a minor but painful treatment.
- I thought I had come up with a perfect activity that would remove 90% of the clutter in our office but found the plan wouldn’t work.
- I discovered that there was a good chance that all my plans for the evenings this week will have to be scrapped.
- And I’m hungry. But we’re three people down in the library, so I have to wait for lunch.
Unfortunately, I broke one of my rules about being unhappy: Being unhappy doesn’t give you the right to spread the feeling to other people. I was grumpy and made other people miserable. So now I’m trying to make it up to my poor colleagues.
My dad had a saying every time my sister and I were upset: “Well, you’ve got the same pants to get happy in.”
And I have gotten happy. Now I just need to remember to do it before I ruin other people’s day.
