That simply won't do. That's a glass-half-empty mentality, and exactly what I am set on metamorphosing into the glass-half-full mentality.
To me the necessary shift was simple and obvious. Stop working myself up into a negative mood focusing on what I couldn't get this week, because that is only a temporary situation after all and redirect my focus to what I was able to accomplish. All that I was able to do with today's pay. Once I did that my mood changed drastically and for the better. Incidentally, I was able to do a lot more than I had realized while trapped in my negativity.
In addition to lifting my mood I discovered I was self-aware enough to witness the thoughts, know they could be changed and to direct them to a far better place.
I'm grateful for the lesson I learned here.
Choosing better thoughts,
