I am annoyed by everyone and everything.

I just googled "I am annoyed by everyone and everything" if that's any indication of my current mood. How do I change it?

I am generally a glass-half-full kind of person. Cheerful, enthusiastic, always see the good in everyone and everything easily and effortlessly. But something has changed and I don't know how to change it back.
Likely causes: I am 7.5 months pregnant and I'm not sleeping well. Work is very stressful right now and I'm working long hours. I have some unresolved problems with extended family.
The work and family stress will take time to sort out. In the meantime, what can I do in the short-term to treat others with respect and patience? I am not doing a good job of hiding my irritation.
And then, of course, what can I do in the long-term to get back to my easygoing self? It's very hard to move through the world like this!
