Today is Tuesday and that means Chatter
When I was wondering what to chat about I got to thinking about being content.
The reason this is on my mind is because I was not content last night
and I woke up this morning in the same ugly mood.
This is not my usual state.
I was in this mood because I had an appointment this morning
that I did not want to go to.
Because of my snotty state I cancelled the appointment and stayed home.
Now I have to reschedule the appointment.
This has not improved my mood.
I was unhappy with what was and now unhappy with what will be.
Socrates said it best
“He who is not contented with what he has,
would not be contented with what he would like to have.”
Sometimes I just get so mad at myself!

I can SO relate to this. A couple weeks ago I had a Dr’s appt that I didn’t want to go to because it was pouring rain and I was taking the bus…and I’m not crazy about my doc. But I knew that if I cancelled, like you, I’d have to reschedule–and that definitely would not improve my mood for as many weeks till the next open appt. So, I feel for you–best to just get things over with, and reward yourself with a treat 🙂
Usually, I don’t let my bad mood rule the day but this day I did. Not smart at all! I don’t need a reason for treats I have them whenever I want them.
Try to look for a bright halo around the edges of your ugly mood. You might consider the mood was conjured up to save you from a catastrophe happening on the way to your appointment. You must be very close to your cat. She seems to be reflecting your mood very well.
I like the way you think!
We think so alike. I usually relate. Thank you for that. Hugs.
Thankfully, my “moods” don’t last long. I just have to vent now and then so I do it here. Teddy and Jack don’t listen to me.
That cat looks sad and disgruntled. Purrfect fit for your mood! I hope your spirits get a great lift quickly.
Cats have wonderfully expressive faces. I am fine now. My bad moods rarely last long. Thank goodness!
Sigh. ‘Tis a human failing, unlike felines who rule no matter what. 😀 ❤
I do need an attitude adjustment and quickly! I don’t like myself when I act like a spoiled brat.
😀 😀 😀 So much guilt? Why don’t I believe you. =^.^=
I don’t feel too guilty just a bit unappreciative of my good life. I really have no reason to be acting like a spoiled brat. But I did enjoy it for awhile. 🙂
😀 😀 😀 The innocent look sometimes works–sometimes. 😛
