This morning, I woke up feeling particularly snarky. In recent months, with exception to times I was sick, I have always woke up in a blissfully sunny mood, but not today. And I am sure it is from what I like to call emotional residue from a dream I had. The fact that I cannot remember the details of the dream just adds to my snarkiness, although I am certain that it involved a massive fight with my ex. I was aware early on in the morning that something was out of balance, but it was not fully apparent until morning tennis practice. No matter how much I tried to shake the feeling off, it surfaced in the form of the worst practice I have ever had – my serves were way off, and I was much harder on myself for my usual beginner’s mistakes. I have since settled my nerves, and am feeling much better, thanks to some extra special attention from my fiancé. But it just goes to show that subconscious things can really affect me in ways that are a bit hard to control.
