Sure, my mortgage, but really, several, some snarky, things, within the context of "when I feel low about work":

1. This will pass
2. Why am I getting overly personally involved in my work?
3. The people I work with are morons. Corollary: Why am I feeling responsible for their f***ups
4. Work is not everything. Find other activities that are equally, if not more so, meaningful.

In the general context of just "when I feel low":

1. There's people suffering a lot more than me. Corollary: find one and do something, even small, that concretely helps them, even if it's just getting through another day for them.
2. My cat, animals in general, nature.
3. Fantasizing about revenge. Wink | ;)

Straw Poll

Were you affected by the geomagnetic storms this past weekend?
Communication disruptions, electrified pipes, random unexplained blue-screens in Windows - the list of effects is terrifying.
