Ambivalence. It's a good thing.

I scheduled a lunch with a friend; we ended up crossing wires, so we'll get together on some other day. We were supposed to meet at a location that I had spent considerable time at a few months ago, and after walking around a little, it all seemed very whatever. That’s a good thing.
