If there's ONE thing that drives me over the top bonkers, it's when I 'm disorganized and feel like I'm wasting time!

How to Deal With Disappointment

Most days I'm definitely a glass half full kinda gal. (Speaking of full glasses, I've currently got a glass full of coffee and it tastes amazing!!!) In general, I'm a really positive person. This attitude usually serves me quite well except for the occasional occasion when my assumption that the best will happen ... doesn't.

It's at those times where I'm left dealing with that yucky feeling everyone deals with off and on throughout life; disappointment.
