We all want life to be perfect. Nothing but sunshine and rainbows. Yet, every now and then we get a curve ball. A bad day. Bad days are a dime a dozen they can take the wind out of our sails, cause use to lose focus on our goals and dreams, and could even cause use to totally derail from our path.
The key is to understand that bad days come and go. They are a dime a dozen and visit us frequently. It is up to us how we handle them. Do we actually let them control our life and let them deflate out sails? No. Life happens and so do bad days. It’s important to remember that all storms pass and there is a lesson to be learned when the dust settles.
Learn from bad days. First off, don’t call them bad days. Some call them character building days, challenge days, or lessons days. Whatever you call them, change your mind-set. Look that these bad days as opportunities of growth. Why was it a bad day? What can I do differently, so that I am stronger or better? How can I grow and help others in similar situations?
It’s important to question these days thoroughly and learn as much as you can. Soak up all the information that you learn and use it to your benefit. If boss got upset with you over some work you did, learn from it. Understand why they were upset and what you did to cause the event. When you gain an understanding about the situation then you can grow into a person who doesn’t make those kinds of mistakes again. If you and your partner get into a fight. Figure out what the cause of the argument is. More than likely there is some underlying problem or something happened to them during the day that caused them to have a bad day. Now they are taking it out on you. Instead of being supportive and listening to them vent you become defensive. Soon a fight breaks out and the night is ruined. These are moments you can reflect on and learn from.
If we don’t learn from our mistakes that caused our bad day we are doomed to repeat these bad days over and over again.
Enjoy life and say no to bad days.
