It’s been one of those days.
Well, actually, the day was great up until 4 pm.
Funny, how a couple of disappointing events can sour the whole day.
Two things happened and I’m left stunned and feeling I had a Friday the 13th kinda day on Thursday the 12th.
I’m amazed that I allowed these two things to color my day in a negative light.
I cannot change the people responsible any more than I can edit their words.
But, I can take responsibility for myself. I can change my outlook and my reaction. I can change myself.
I can refuse the “bad” and embrace the “good.” I can move away from the wrong and toward the right. I can set my thoughts on positive and wholesome things instead of rehashing things said and done.
I can’t change the ignorance and thoughtless actions and words of others, but I can choose to act in wisdom.
And, wisdom dictates I declare Thursday the 12th a great day! and that which miffed me as not worth consideration.
It is what it is. They are who they are. And, I am who I am.
And, the latter is where I begin – with myself.
