Random Thought #19: Fresh Starts
You have bad days.
We ALL have bad days.
Having a bad day is one of my top five things I don’t enjoy experiencing. It’s right up there with menstrual cramps and migraines. Experiencing them is inevitable, however, I choose how I deal with them. I can wallow in pain, or I can develop coping mechanisms to make them manageable. I use the same approach for bad days.
For example, I tell myself the following:
- Today will come to an end.
- While today was bad, today could’ve been worse.
- Midnight brings a fresh start of 24 hours for me to make good use of.
I’ll be honest, sometimes none of the above works and that’s okay. In those instances, I come home and try to decompress. If that doesn’t work, I shower, eat, and go to bed. Sometimes, turning my brain off is what’s needed to escape from the claws of a bad day.
