Overly tweaked

I've found myself being very un-Dude-like (to use the parlance of our times) lately. Seriously, I'm snotty to people and easily annoyed. And when I catch myself being that way toward Diana, I get pissed at myself. This must change.

I'm tweaked out not because of any particular "good" stress, but just because of my frustrations and fears elsewhere. They fall into two categories: Worrying about things I can't control and creating expectations of myself that I can't always meet. Just snap my fingers and stop doing those things, right? Yeah.

I can't roll like this. It's not good for me. So my action plan is to be a little more proactive about my general response to life, and see where I'm falling into those two traps. And then not do that.

I've gotten better at the former -- realizing that things out of my control are just that -- but the latter, expectations, well, hoooeeeeee that's a tall order. I'll pay you good money to figure that one out!
