In an Irritable Bipolar Mood

Posted Mar 22 2011 12:00am

What can I say?  Sometimes it happens.  Today I am in an irritable bipolar mood.  Just one of those days when nothing seems to be going right.  And, I hate to say it, because it is so cliche, I actually broke a nail today.  Don’t you dare laugh!

So what do I do when I get one of these irritable bipolar days?  First, I try to get in a better mood.  I try to be more positive.  You see, most of the time, it’s your attitude that determines your mood anyway.  So if you have a positive attitude, you’re usually in a good mood, and if you have a negative attitude, you are usually in a bad mood.

So I start with my attitude.  It’s obvious not the best of attitudes, or I wouldn’t be in this irritable state of mind.  I wish it were different, but I’m just trying to be honest with you.  Happens to the best of us.  Has nothing to do with stability.

I’m still stable, just a little off-base today.  Can’t even say what started it, seemed to come on all of a sudden.  Must’ve been that broken nail, do you think?  That would put any woman into a bad mood. lol

Laughing.  Now that’ll do someone some good.  If I don’t take myself too seriously, I won’t take my situation too seriously, and then my attitude will instantly change.  Like the crack about the broken nail.  It’s really not a big deal.  Therefore, my situation must not be such a big deal after all, eh?

I mean, I could make it a big deal if I wanted to, but in that case I could make my whole day more rotten than it has to be if I want to, too!  But I choose not to do that.

In fact, I choose (and it is a choice) to mellow out and be in a better mood today. 

I do NOT want to be irritable today!  I just do NOT like how it makes me feel!  Do you know what I mean?  And since I believe that we do have control over our moods (most of the time, at least when not in a bipolar episode), I take control and decide NOT to be  irritable today!

There!  I feel so much better now!  Don’t you?

Wishing you peace and stability,

Remember God loves you and so do I,

Michele
