A Good Night Sleep

Yesterday afternoon was unpleasant. Several unsuccessful online banking attempts left me feeling drained. Security questions were initially set up to protect customers. But their randomness could make a well-tempered customer want to complain to and yell at the phone representative, out of pure frustration, incessantly till his or her head fell off.

It is needless to say that my mood was not in the calming state. Miscellaneous thoughts and irrational fears kept terrorizing me from the early afternoon till late night. Having realized my powerlessness to deal with the problem at hand, at one point, I told myself to let it go. I convinced myself to set the problem aside, go to bed, and have a rest, because moodiness could only maximize and magnify a problem; rather than minimizing it.

I woke up this morning. I did feel a lot calmer than I was yesterday. My calmer state of mind had already helped me found a solution to the problem, of which drove me nuts yesterday afternoon. Although I have yet to test out the solution; however, I feel that my calmness has helped me see the light at the end of a dark tunnel.
