The mood of today is: sadness. At least that is how I feel today. It is a fact that I feel sad. The question is, what shall I do about this feeling of sadness?

What I usually do is do a quick scan of my current situation. Has anything come up since yesterday when I was not feeling sad? Usually the answer is no and so I decide that the feeling of sadness has nothing to do with me. I can’t make it go away but I can ignore it. And I certainly don’t have to act on it or dig for reasons. In time the sadness will go away.

In the words of Tobias of The Crimson Circle: It is only mine if I want it. As I choose today to not own this feeling of sadness, it will eventually evaporate leaving no trace on my life.
