cindy crawford and neil gaiman were prominently featured in a murder plot in my dream. (i would dreamlog these things but i’m actually trying not to remember too many details).

i remember being told that daily affirmations were supposed to be positive statements — but what if an important part of my day is wanting not to do things? what if the not doing is important to me? i have to sit here and figure out ways of twisting the phrases so they don’t contain negatives? how about double negatives, don’t those cancel one another out? ahh, hell, i’m tossing rules to the winds. here are some affirmations:
i will not twist Faith’s words today (see? if i’d twisted that one i’d be off to a bad start). i will be productive at work (again, i’m on a roll here). i will not panic (no matter how prudent that course of action may seem). i will not hurt, maim, or kill anyone, in spite of the raging lack of nicotine in my body. i may yell at a few people though. that’s reasonable. i will be reasonable today! or, i will try not to be unreasonable, at least. and i will not become despondent if lowering my expectations becomes inevitable. i will probably be a sarcastic ass in several situations today. i am ok with that.
the road to good intentions is paved with… ahh, hell.
