Oh Goodness


This is quick. Short.

Earlier tonight, I was hangry. And I mean HANGRY. Just ask my husband. If you were to look “hangry” up on Urban Dictionary, you would see a picture of me. And if you don’t, it’s only because they haven’t updated it yet.

Instead of doing my usual tear-inducing running to my bedroom to escape for a moment, I sat down with my computer. And typed. Amid the noise of kids playing the Wii U, amid the noise of my husband’s computer game. Amid my own feelings.  I typed. I didn’t know why I was angry (until I typed the word hangry, that is), but I wrote and wrote and wrote, and man. Did it feel good!

So let me tell you something. I’ve always known that writing was therapeutic, but never “in the moment” have I sat down to take my mood out on my keyboard rather than my loved ones. My advice? The next time you’re in a bad mood, frustrated, disappointed, or, yes, hangry, write it out. Don’t think about what you’re writing. Just write.

I highly suggest it. Your situation may not change, but I can tell you that your attitude just might.

And to my family…
