I went to the post office yesterday morning and was frustrated to find that my package would cost three times more to ship than I expected because they did not offer media mail services through the kiosk. I became even more upset when the slot to drop off packages was broken, so I had to wait for the office to open anyway. I had planned on getting breakfast that morning but did not have time to do so after the post office trip. I went into work frustrated and upset. However, I calmed down after helping a few courteous customers. It is amazing what a few good interactions can do to improve your mood.
This morning I was able to get the breakfast I missed out on last night. I always feel better when I have eaten well, so I am grateful for a better start to my day today.
