Keeping A Positive Life.

11:18 a.m. There's a new, and very helpful mantra I've been adopting lately. 'There is no need to dwell on the past, or worry about the future. The present is now, and you are okay.' It stands to cut a lot of needless worry out of my life, in a lot of directions.

Positivity gets tempted to get derailed by a lot of things, especially if, like me, you woke up after having nightmares through the night to find someone wasn't all too happy with something you did.

In my case, last night we got hit with a lot of ants in the kitchen, and I sprayed bug spray...quite a bit. The bad smell lingered for a 'really' long time after, and April being super-sensitive to smell, wound up with a painful headache all night. Because of what I did.

So yeah...I can't feel too great about that. I woke up to a message where she kindly asked that I not do it again, and I don't find it unreasonable not to, so I apologized and agreed.

I believe, and have found, that humility gets a person very far in life, and makes life much easier for myself and those around me, and I should try to be so always. And so now that that's done, now I know I can move forward with my day.

The challenge that comes throughout the day are these nagging needless thoughts that come at me, that I must push away. 'Just her trying to have control/way again.' 'Oh, yet another stupid rule.' 'Blaming me.' 'How can she know what the cause is?' All of which is practically meaningless to me, because:

  • She's not being unreasonable by asking me nicely not to do it again. Nor is it a huge stretch to not do it again.
  • By me agreeing not to, I consider the issue peacefully resolved. And therefore, there's no need to dwell on it to risk inciting anger in me, or causing strife.
So I just felt the need to write that down and get those thoughts out of the way. Address the issue to myself.

I like to give myself a fresh start each morning, now. And it really improves my life. I reassure myself, as I said, the past has already happened. It's over. Have a clean slate now. His forgiveness is new each morning. Go through your day in peace. Don't sin. And there's no need to fret over the future. It's not in your control, anyway. It really simplifies things for me. And I like keeping it simple. :)


I'm preferable to my positive, plucky, and peaceful state, as I go about my day from task to task (which I can hope are productive ones.) Try not to have negative thoughts. Push those away. Keep from complaining. Be grateful, instead. All of which are things I'm certainly not perfect at, but would very much like to work on. In Jesus name, amen. :)

12:48 p.m. Had egg, avacado, and chicken nuggets for breakfast. Then did my 'yogurt' for the day, as I sometimes like to call yoga. Getting a slight headache..I think eating eggs right before a yoga session does that to me now and then. But it'll pass, God willing. I'm totally chill, right now. :) Peaceful, calm, and happy. That's totally me. And that's how I choose to go through life. Amen, in Jesus name, amen!

1:29 p.m. Played a bit of DMK. And got the dishes put up.

I also threw out our old dish strainer, which was getting very unsanitary, and replaced it with my personal one. Which has now become the household one.

The bottom tray, though, somehow..at some point..went missing. So! I have to wait a week to get a new strainer, for a dollar, from the dollar tree. I think we'll live. For now, there's a towel in place of the tray, so that should work for a temporary situation.

April woke up. We resolved the issue for today, so we're chill and that's no longer a bother.

P.S. It JUST occurred to me. I HAVE a dollar. I can go get a strainer. :P If April's up for it. She just woke up, so I may have to give her a few. O.O

It's also day two of my new 'page a day' novel, so hopefully that continues.

2:25 p.m. 'Page a day' day two task is done. Got a new strainer, which I learned comes WITHOUT the tray. It never had one. Hence why it was so cheap. But now we have two, sitting inside bins to catch the water that are about the right size.

April was irked by multiple things, meanwhile. Got me wishing I didn't have to go through my life in the constant presence of negative attitudes, but who knows if that's ever gonna change? It all happens for a reason. I can't be the only positive person I know. :P Not that I'm perfect. I do forgive, as well.

5:18 p.m. I finished a new template for Secondlife. Then, I took a brief walk.  Showered. And then..finished off the last half of my chocolate bunny while watching this Morgan Freeman documentary on Netflix about God and religions. Just brushed my teeth. Really enjoying the end of this day.


7:56 p.m. Napped for a couple hours. Much needed. lol.

9:44 p.m. Had dinner. Watched Goldbergs. Hung out with April a bit. Now just deciding on doing something besides sleeping. As long as it's not IMing, preferably. Cause I have social limits and prefer not to be IMing past 10 p.m. these days. Eep. I'm weird, I know.

11:50 p.m. Cranked out a new template to, hopefully, put up for sale at some point.



And here's the inspiration for today's creations, by the way:
