I realize I could have dug a little deeper to find things to be grateful for, but I didn't have it in me yesterday. I also realize those are the times I should really be posting because it will likely change my outlook on the day, but I was fully content in wallowing in my own displeasure.
Yes, I was (and still am) breathing and I acknowledge this as a good thing, but the second my last commenter told me to keep a positive attitude, I sort of just wanted to punch him in the face (no offense). I was having a bad day and I was fine with it. I wasn't posting it as a way for someone to try and cheer me up. I'm fully capable of doing that myself. At least while being fed up with the annoyances of the past few days I was able to find something that was positive. I wasn't being a total Debbie Downer. In fact, if I had just had the ability to withdraw from everything and everyone for a few hours, I probably would have emerged a happier, more balanced person. Today, I was able to enjoy the silence for a few hours and I can honestly say it's exactly what I needed.
