Trying to get over bad feelings

I did not have a nice day yesterday when something that shouldn't have happened happened. 

I felt bad about it and I didn't want to feel that way and so I kept telling myself that it's okay, but it was not okay. I couldn't for the life of me get the bad feelings off as much as I would want to. I tried very hard to get my mind off the matter but I kept going back to thinking about it. 

I finally decided that I couldn't stop the feelings and that I would have to give it some time and ride along it without any frustrations until it dissipates. 

That was yesterday evening. 

This morning, on my commute to work, I thought I'd watch some TED talks in the car. 

This video was a godsend. It brightened up my morning and then the whole day. And I thank God for it. 

The Agony of Trying to Unsubscribe by James Veitch

I was laughing out loud towards the end of the talk but it was this very last part that I will cherish: 
"Guys, just remember, whenever you feel weighed down, and then the bureaucracy and often mundanity of modern life, don't fight the frustration. Let it be the catalyst for whimsy."
