Where, oh where, is my mind today?

Today has been strange so far. I'm not quite sure what my problem is other than I've been dwelling on some things that are out of my control. I've been busy at work which is helping to keep me side-tracked, but obviously not busy enough. On my lunch break I went by a friend's house to drop off something, so that helped clear my mind a little. I listened to Think on NPR while I was in my car and the report was a good one! Maybe that's what helped perk me up. The guest was the author of a new book called Click and he was discussing what all of us are clicking on while we're on the internet. It was very interesting!

Anyway, I got back to my desk and the sinking feeling had somewhat subsided, but I began feeling a little frustrated that I allow my mind to do that. I know I've posted before about worrying about needless things so I don't want to repeat that same message. However, I want to get better at clearing my mind of the things that bog me down and move on to happier thoughts more quickly. This is something I've worked on over the years, and I do feel like I've made improvements, but there is still work to be done.
