I don’t know about you, but I didn’t have a fabulous day yesterday.
I was feeling a bit flat to start with (never a good start) and then things meandered downhill rapidly as the day progressed. Hmmm. Needless to say, by late afternoon an additional biscuit and coffee break was required as I was feeling well and truly sorry for myself.
That said, do you ever think the world works in mysterious ways? Firstly - my close friends were all on the same page. “One door closes and another one opens. Que sera sera! There are bigger and better things ahead for you!”
And then I turned on the tv and saw the news of the Oklahoma tornado. Hmm, did I feel just a little bit selfish, while I was rugged up all warm and safe on my sofa, while watching the heartache that this community had endured? That would be a rather large yes.
Natural disasters aside, the moral of my less than fabulous day? Well, it made me realise that you do indeed need to have bad days in order to appreciate the good days. Bad days also help us to regroup, refocus and re-energise. However, how you move forward from a bad day or bad experience is entirely up to you - and that is where it would appear most of us get stuck.
One way I have found to help shake off a bad day or experience, aside from speaking with fabulous friends is to stop what I’m doing and have some quick ‘get my head together down time’ and do things that make me happy …. That and get a good night’s sleep. What do you do?
