We all have em, right? Those morning where we wake up and think to ourselves "hmm.. I'd rather not."
That was me this morning. Mainly due to last night's laundry mishap.
RIP brand new white shirt. And living room: sorry you are covered in soaked clothes. Pleeeeease have them dry for me by this afternoon?
Thanks, you're a pal.
Funny how a bad mood spirals. Gets you thinking that the best remedy for the bad mood is to sit and sulk in said bad mood.
"Ugh, I don't want to go to work today. I would rather just sit and lay in bed thinking about how annoyed I am right now."
"And don't even get me started on tonight's run. That sounds awful right now."
Yeah, that was me this morning.
But the thing is: they're just clothes. The ruined shirt will be replaced at some point, and the soaked clothes will dry. It'd be preferrable if the work out clothes would dry before this evening's run. But if not, hey, maybe it'll make me run faster.
And as for not looking forward to tonight's run? Well, there are plenty of people who would love to run 10 miles today.
Like the Boston Marathon victims who have suddenly found themselves without limbs.
Or my roommate who has found herself in a cast for the next 3 months.
So on days like today, where running for over an hour and a half just does not sound appealing at all, I will remember how I felt when I had my stress fracture. And all I wanted to do was
You know the upside to an off day? It leaves me on my knees asking God for more of Him, and less of me.
There's just no where better than kneeling at the foot of the cross, is there?
Fake it til you make it, I say. I will be in a good mood today. By golly, yes I will.
