Optimistic October Day 21: Sadness

Optimistic October: A 31 Days of Writing Challenge at

I feel like a failure.

This project was supposed to inspire me (and anyone who happens to be reading) to be more positive and more optimistic. Instead, I seem to be heading in the opposite direction. I am cranky, negative, pessimistic, short-tempered, and just feeling blue overall. The worst part is that I really just want to wallow in it instead of trying to do something about it or use some of the techniques that I’ve already written about.

How do you overcome these feelings? Should I just put on my big girl undies (like the ones I wrote about on October 18) and get over it? Does anyone have any tips for getting yourself back on the optimism track? I would appreciate any feedback because I’m starting to feel alone over here!


I am Amber. Amber I am. I like to write things that sound like a Dr. Seuss book, evidently.
