Some days, I wake up in an odd mood.  I don't want to be alone, I'm restless, I have trouble focusing on one thought process for very long, and I just want to do anything but what I'm supposed to do(i.e. work, cleaning, running errands, etc.).  On those days, I just want to blow everything off and just do something fun. 

As I can't actually do that, I end up procrastinating instead.  Essentially, that it what I'm doing now.  I don't want to clean my room and get ready for work, so instead, I'm writing a blog post about moodiness. 

I know that I'm not the only one in the world who experiences such days.  Actually, I'm pretty confident that this is a regular occurrence in the human condition.  So what can we do to combat such moods?  I've got to go to work.  If I want to keep my job, then work is pretty much unavoidable.   My room has needed to be straightened up for a good week now, so I really do have to get on it.  It stresses my mom out when the room stays messy and I personally am trying to lick the habit of letting it get messy in the first place.  So, the cleaning, too, must be done.

The picture of the little pouty girl perfectly illustrates my reaction to these inevitable elements of my day.   Unfortunately, in such cases as these, resistance really is futile and will probably only make things worse.  So, pouting aside, I need to snap to it. 

My solution: prayer, family, and song.

I'm at home for the summer, with my wonderful family constantly at hand.   I shall make use of this by hurrying to clean up before work so as to have time with them before I leave.   I went to Mass today and I'll probably run by the chapel after work.  That will definitely help me push through the mood.  Finally,  I bought a new song on iTunes and am now listening to some fun tunes while I blog/clean.  Win!

Anyway, that's my three step solution to pushing through moodiness.  It probably doesn't work for everyone, but it usually works for me.  If anyone has additional suggestions for me, I'd love to hear them!  Either way, I have to go clean now! ^_^

Have a good day!
