~ I can handle the things that irritated me today at work and it makes me feel proud of myself to be able to handle interpersonal challenges like I do. I *like* to be gracious. It makes me feel good about myself. While I don’t like being irritated, it does remind me that I am a fine, upstanding woman.
~ The lady from who I ordered my milkshake didn’t look (as much as one can tell from visual clues) like she had a lot to be happy about. Or maybe she is just introverted and doesn’t feel comfortable talking to new people. Regardless of why she was wearing what seemed to me to be Grumpy Pants, I’m know there are things going on in her life that are very, very good reasons for her feeling the way she does. I need not judge.
~ I can come up with something to look forward to. It can be really awesome and cost-effective too.
~ I am going to work that Summer Program over like a baus. (< slang for “boss: noun — a person who is a leader, someone who runs sh*t in his/her hood or city“)
~ I am getting my work done
