Just like the PLANKS Challenge tagline, "tough as nails". It feels good to be strong, to be tough. Having a attitude sometimes means you're just that hardcore and you're not letting anything get in your way. Having a bad attitude is better than having no attitude. It might just be one more stop on the way to a good attitude.
Instead of fighting the bad attitude within, embrace it. I've got my first my mud run this Saturday, and I'm embracing my inner bad ass to mentally prepare for trucking through the woods, covered in mud, climbing walls, and arm crawling under wires.
In this depression I've been fighting, I've had this overwhelming urge to dye my hair like this, pierce something, and get a few tattoos. It's like this attitude inside is trying to ooze right out of me. I'm getting my hair cut on Friday. We'll see how that goes. Don't worry mom, no dye yet.
So maybe it's time to stop fighting the bad attitude and embrace. Pick your workout, tackle it, kick ass and take names. Go do something that feels a little bad-ass.
