We’ve all heard the expression ‘he must have got out the wrong side of the bed this morning’ – meaning that someone is being a grouch! Well, guess what: As human beings we can chose which side of the bed to get out of. Every morning as your feet touch the floor, it’s as if you have two pet dogs waiting to greet you. One of the dogs is friendly, full of beans and fun to be with; the other is cold, solemn and prone to making vicious attacks for little or no apparent reason. Whichever dog you greet first is usually how the rest of your day ends up.
