For two days now I have been in a crabby kinda mood; I'm short with everyone, I am rolling my eyes at every little thing and doing that annoyed teeth sucking sound, and just being generally unpleasant. I used to be annoyed a lot, especially as a moody teenager and then a moody 20-something. But that is not how I want to live my 30s (or 40s or 50s or 60s). I've found I have to be incredibly intentional in policing my moods and negativity.
One of the things I love to do naturally as a writer is journal and I've been using this desire to write to discover myself and recall things of my past. I've been going through some extremely hard things lately, coming to terms with my past, both done to me and that I've done, and last night it led me to Celebrate Recovery at one of our local churches. It was a rare night to start because it was the group's 5th anniversary, but the experience was still interesting and made a big impact.
