    Well, I decided I HAD to have a good day, to feel better about myself, so this morning, I vowed to completely ignore the negative self-narrative that is telling me how worthless I am, how hopeless life is, etc.

    Literally, like a little kid who doesn't want to listen to mom, so he sticks his fingers in his ears, turns his gaze away, and hums a tune.

    I'm doing the equivalent, I downloaded some new material from iTunes, including a couple of Enrique Iglesias albums completely in Spanish, a language I do not know, and I am listening slowly, intently, and carefully to try to pick up and parse the meaning of the lyrics, or in the case of Enrique, to try to figure out from my rudimentary knowledge of Spanish what the song is even about.

    It's working. Simple things for a simple mind, I guess. Having a much better day than many in the recent past.

    What a great idea. I think I'll try to ignore some of my neg thought, too. Maybe some music.
