Generally I am an insanely optimistic person (as Mr Mutley points out).
Occasionally you just drag yourself up in the morning , its grey , cold and manky (the weather is not up to much iether) , and you feel like crap.
I have a theory ....There is a little bit of your mind thats been storing up all the day to day bullshit you blithley gloss over , the poisonous little slights , the things you should have done , and didnt. All the crap thats part of life and like a pustulating blackhead suddenly splurts it out for your delictation and delight.
Now the Beast's theory is this , when this happens , dont just mope and soak it all up again.
Embrace it.......own it......and master it.
Heres what you do.
1. Physically feel the pain............. clean your house till you drop , manically do your garden , go to the gym , do any thing physically onerous and suffer baby suffer.
2.Drag up all those nasty little fragments of thought that have erupted into your conciousness and have yourself a little self flagellation and fight back party.
Get yourself a pen and paper , write down whatever pops into your head ....... read it, feel it and then cut loose with a response .The response may be directed at yourself , your friends or the world in general....... be viscious , be angry .....fill your boots.
Now you have physically felt the pain , mentally addressed your issues and had a screaming hissy fit at yourself , your friends and the universe in general.
3.Go buy your favourite baaaaaaaaaaaad foods , hole up on the sofa , in your fantastically clean house , put some crap on the telly , snuggle up under a quilt , stuff yourself stupid and just allow yourself to wallow in a bit of soul healing self pity , It helps if you imagine some dreadful retribution scenario's against those who have sinned against you.
4.Go to bed early and have a good nights sleep.
Tomorrow is another day........and I guarantee you will feel purged , optimistic and a feck site better.
Meanwhile The Beast can be found festering on a sofa near you , gutsing donuts and day dreaming of messy accidents involving certain people and a runaway steam roller/combine harvester.
