Day 11: Boogie Man

Well, today was the first day in a while that I caught myself thinking a negative thought. I was actually caught off guard by it, since I’ve been on my positivity kick the past couple of weeks, but I knew it couldn’t last forever. The evil, gray mass came into my mind so quickly that I almost felt a whiplash. It crept up on me during my morning commute on the subway like the Boogie Man. I was reading the Metro newspaper and as I browsed through an article the negative thought jumped right into my mind, without an invitation. “How rude,” I thought. I was taught by my parents that it is rude to interrupt people when they are speaking. Negative thoughts interrupting positive thoughts are sort of the same thing. I chuckled and thought to myself, “You are going to have to try harder than that if you want to get me off my game.” Take that Boogie Man. I’m not scared of you.
