It’s a strange thing to be grateful for, neutral moods, but today because I woke up in a neutral mood I had a wonderful day.
So when I woke up I was feeling pretty neutral. My first thought was, *groan* “I have to work all day” but then I stopped and examined why I thought that. I wasn’t feeling sad or upset about going to work really, it was more of a habitual reaction. So I changed my mind. I chose to instead think “I’m going to have a really good day at work today” and you know what? I did. I had a really good day. And my mind didn’t take much convincing. Once I decided that I was going to have a good day, that was that. I didn’t have to think about it anymore because it was already happening.
