A Bad Day
“I’ve had a bad day!” or “I’m having a bad day.”
You hear people say it all the time.
When was the last time you said it yourself? Try to remember that day. What happened? What made that day bad?
I’m sure you can come up with a whole bunch of reasons, but try to remember how the “bad” started. What was it? Can you put your finger on it?
Often, what happens is, we’re not having a bad day. We’re having a bad moment. And that moment trips us up and when the “bad” is over, we’re still in “bad” mode. Our mind keeps hooked and doesn’t let go.
And so, in consequence, all the rest of the day that comes after, is seen through “bad moment” eyes and that’s why we call it a bad day.
What if we try to get back to “great day” or at least “normal day” next time as soon as the bad moment is over?
Don’t drag the past with you. Give every moment a new chance!
