I received the following in an email this morning. I am unsure who originally said it, and there was not a direct reference to anyone; however, it really hit home. I had been laying in bed this morning trying to organize my brain and figure out what needed to be accomplished as I have a lot of meetings and things to do today--which I dislike on a Monday as it seems to be a great day to get back into the writing groove after a busy weekend with kids home all day and various sporting events. So, I was getting a little irritated about my day and then saw this in an email and had to chuckle. I thought I'd share it in case any of you started your day today in similar fashion.
So far today I’ve done all right. I haven’t gossiped, I haven’t lost my temper,
I haven’t criticized or moaned. I
haven’t been snappy, grumpy, nasty, selfish or over indulgent. I’m very thankful for that. But in a few minutes, I’m going to get out of
bed. And from then on I’m probably going
to need a lot more help!
It must have been just what I needed as the start of my bad attitude changed immediately. I hope you are all having a wonderful start to your new week as well.
