Ever find yourself in a mood and beating yourself up for feeling (insert your favorite negative mood here)?
Just yesterday I found myself in one of those moods. Don’t get me wrong – the day had a good start. It was an early morning, but an easy shift with some positive people.
I don’t usually like gigs like these….but the staff at Bisnow are wonderful.
The thing is, these shifts make for a very early wake up. Like, a 4:30am wake up. And of course I got to bed late the night previously after my Vagabond School class. Oh, and I just so happened to have a show later that evening.
Aren’t we cute? Grateful for Broken Nose Theatre this group of people right here
“No worries!” I thought. ” I can totally take my time to rest, nap, and take it easy in between….”
….except I still haven’t figured out this nap thing. ( Like seriously!)
I experienced my normal symptoms of feeling tired, groggy, and cranky following my nap. I wasn’t happy. Which of course led me to get upset about anything and everything for the rest of the afternoon.
And then I said to myself, “You know what – it’s okay to feel shitty today.” And the minute I told myself this, I felt better.
Funny how much pressure we take off ourselves the minute we stop trying to do things right or perfect.
I hope that the next time you’re in a cranky mood, regardless of the reason, you cut yourself some slack and remember, “Hey. I’m human. I’m not a terrible person for being #notperfect.”
Write it down. Hang it up. I swear it helps.
Let’s go get ’em, friends.
