Recurring problem in life...

I feel older and crotchettyer each year. Like every year is a spade of dirt in a hole marked "negativity", and I'm standing in it whilest digging it. This really needs to change, somehow, but I can't figure out how. I've got less patience and a sharper tongue than I ever have before. Some of that is situational depression and stress, but some of it is just a rut I've given myself permission to fall into. Must work on this, "unpleasant" is never an adjective I'd want used against me.

Creative expression
One of the great pieces of advice I have received from Sarah Ban Breathnach's inspirational daybook, Simple Abundance is: If you must complain, at least be creative about it.

When I begin to feel the same leanings myself, and I want to distract myself from the knee-jerk tendency toward negativity, I try to make a game about of my complaints and sarcasm. I try to express my complaints creatively through things like angry haiku, or violent stick figure cartoons! Maybe this will help take the bitter lemon out of this process?
