I Woke Up On the Wrong Side of the Bed

This morning I woke up and went downstairs for coffee and some breakfast.  Breakfast consisted of sausage and a biscuit with some gravy.  I took my coffee with sweetener and cream, but after finishing it I felt worse off.  The coffee was almost sour and I felt like crap.

After breakfast I felt worst off and I concluded that I would have been better off without the breakfast and not THAT cup of coffee.  I struggled through 25 push-ups and promised myself I would finish the other 75 in intervals throughout the day.

I tried to log in to my computer, but the cable would not cooperate and my hot spot kept on saying “Windows network busy please try again later.”  Leave it to windows to F $hit up!

I continued to feel snappy and irritable and took myself on a walk to the corner 7 11 and cringed at the sunshine and the fact that I did not have sunglasses yet.  I got a new cable then headed back to my room, but on the way back I decided to sit down and think for a minute…  I was obviously wound too tightly and was way too reactive for my own good.

These are all 1st world “problems” that I am dealing with and shame on me for calling them problems at all!

Let’s back track a little and recap…  I have been complaining about having coffee, breakfast, and too much sunshine.  I obviously woke up on the wrong side of the bed and really have no right to be so grumpy.  

Do you ever wake up on the wrong side of the bed?  How do you turn your frown upside down?

  1. Even though they’re “first world problems” it doesn’t mean they’re not annoying.

    I’ve found I’m less prone to waking up cranky – or able to at least snap out of it – through my new meditation practice (it’s a part of a year long project of 30 day challenges).

    I find that if I start my morning by investing in myself and being still with my thoughts, I’m much more able to navigate the rest of my day from a place of gratitude and joy. 🙂

    1. Thanks for reading and understanding. It is so true that they are still annoying because we know that things could be better.

      I am happy for you and the fact that you have been able to find a meditation practice and morning ritual that works well for you. I am going to start focusing on doing the same.

      Thanks again for your kind words and encouragement!

      ❤ Alana

  2. We all have bad days, Alana. That’s completely fine! We’re allowed to have those kinds of days – but let’s not make it too often. 🙂 Just take a deep breath.
