Bad Day Blues
The world can be a crazy place. One bad day can turn into three and by the time you know it, your whole week has turned to shit.
Why does this happen?
There is no black and white reason why life sometimes works out really good at times while other moments can feel like a dark cloud has casted over your days.
What you can do to get through those gray periods is to focus your attention elsewhere. You have to keep a level head and not overreact to the rain storms that suddenly appear.
Are you good at managing your own emotions?
Or are you a walking volcano ready to erupt as soon as someone or something pisses you off?
Try and avoid feeding into problems that are not worth getting angry over. Whether it is a nasty coworker, a flat tire, traffic, a rude stranger, etc. Everyone has issues and challenges that you know nothing about. Instead of obsessing over how life is not working out, or how crappy your day was, concentrate on the areas that ARE working.
We all want our life to go “perfect” but that is not a reality. Perfection is simply not attainable, everyone makes mistakes, life throws us curveballs, and hiccups come up out of the blue.
You have to learn to let go of the idea that each day is going to go 100% smoothly.
Some days will be super incredible, some days will be good, and some days will feel like dog poop.
Everyone has those monkey wrench moments in life.
The good news is that you are in charge of how you deal with those types of surprises.
The key is to take each obstacle in stride, not take every little word or action personally, and focus on what you can control.
You CAN control the way you treat others, the way you live your OWN life and the way you DEAL with the unexpected.
Next time you are feeling frustrated, try to control your mind, filter through the negativity and cool down your anxiety.
Just keep reminding yourself that the clouds always clear away.
