I stomped around yesterday with a thundercloud over my head, building intensity as the minutes slowly ticked by. I had no reason to be so angry yesterday. I just was. Sometimes it happens.
I let my irritation build to the point that my anxiety kicked into overdrive. I ended up having a minor panic attack. In the office. In front of my coworkers. I’m not sure they knew what was happening, but I got eerily quiet. That’s not normal. Usually, it’s pretty difficult to get me to shut up.
I didn’t spend today dwelling on the disaster that was yesterday. What good does dwelling on the past do us? Moving on with a positive attitude feels so much better than wallowing in misery. Put that bad day behind you, dust off your butt, and move on!
Know what else feels great? Having a great day in the office the day after a near meltdown.
I could have stayed in my rut, pulling everyone else down with me. Instead I chose to focus on the positive aspects of my job, the great people I work with, and the fact that I am so fortunate to be a part of a fantastic team.
I chose to focus on what I could do to make today an amazing day. I chose.
That’s what matters most.
