I totally get it and I have to agree that bad days truly suck! They make things seem worse than they are, they test you like no other, and many times the hits keep coming one after another. Bad days happen to all of us, no matter how much we try to fight it and no matter how positive we are, some days are just a bit tougher than the rest.
But the reality is it’s a day, sometimes a moment from a particular day. We must be careful because at times we can carry on so much, talk about it so much, focus on it so much that it starts to actually sound like feel as though we have a bad life. We start to say things like “my life sucks”.
Really?! You got two flat tires today and your WHOLE life sucks?? You didn’t have coffee, someone hacked into your bank account, you lost your job and your WHOLE life sucks?!
What happened during that fun vacation you had 2 months ago. What happened when you celebrated your birthday with all your close friends and family? What happened when you had a spa day and had time to yourself? Those were good days. Are you throwing them out and saying that all actually sucked?
Well that’s part of your life too…
Resorting to saying your life sucks sounds more like a perspective problem. A gratitude problem. Are you thankful for what you do have? Have you thought that you lost that job because God wants you to step out and follow your dreams? Have you thought that those 2 flat tires may have saved you from a horrific accident at the next stop light?
I know about days that aren’t so good. Trust me. I have had my share. I have also had my share of an attitude that got me no where. A small mindset.
But think about it….
How does a bad day equal a bad life? Weeelll, it doesn’t! A bad day is what it is, a bad day. A day where things are just a bit off. Things seem to be going wrong. Your thoughts are being attacked. And worst of all, some of those “bad days” involve losing someone extremely close to you and it literally takes your breath away. I truly get it!!
My friend that does not mean you have a bad life. You still have a beautiful life to live. Give thanks for the good things and everything that is going right and you will see after all, that perspective is everything ❤
