Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today. Will Rogers
I needed to see this quote! For some reason, I have been thinking a lot about the past. I have lots of good memories. But lately, I have been thinking about the less-than-good times. Why is that? It is a waste of time, for sure.
It also makes it hard to go to sleep. And without good sleep, I am lazy and grumpy. When I am lazy and grumpy nothing gets done. I just sit and think miserable thoughts. Remember the song, Sitting in the Garden Eating Worms? That’s me the last couple of days.
So, I talked with Teddy and Jack. They are very good at helping me see the bright side of life. I will have a good sleep tonight, and tomorrow I will be my usual good-natured self.
Lighten up, just enjoy life, smile more, laugh more, and don’t get so worked up about things. Kenneth Branagh
Well, it’s after seven and I am just now writing today’s musing. I’m doing it late, not because I was busy and didn’t have time to write, but because I was in a crummy mood. I have been in this mood for a few days. No big reason for it, and it is time for it to be gone!
When I was trying to think of something to write about, I saw the quote I posted above Jack’s picture. Something I needed to see. It made me think about my bad mood. What a waste of time, being miserable about nothing. Thinking about it made me laugh at myself. What a silly woman I am!
I feel better, though I still don’t have anything to write. So, I will just say goodnight.
I didn’t write Monday, musings… because I was in a terrible mood since Sunday. So I decided to spare you. I wasn’t going to write today because things weren’t much better for most of the day. That means I was an ugly, grumbling, complaining, horrible bitch for four days! Not my usual self for sure.
I seem to have gotten back to my normal self but I am now in no mood to write. That ever happen to you? I am going to take a bath and go to bed. I can’t stand being outta sorts!
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.”
Teddy is in a mood.
I am not sure why.
Maybe because his dish is empty,
or because I made him get out of the bathtub
so I could take a shower, or because it is hot and the a/c
is on and the door is closed and he can’t go outside, or
maybe because I wouldn’t give him any of my ice cream.
Maybe it is something else.
I don’t know why but he is definitely in a !MOOD!
But doesn’t he look cute all mad and pouty?
I have been very dull of late, because of the heat I think.
It could be making my brain sweat and swelter
and rendering it unable to think properly.
Thank you, Teddy, for giving me something
for Tuesday Chatter and for making me smile. ♥ He makes me happy.♥
