Having a bad day?

We all have them, despite what the insanely ‘happy’ people believe.

Once we accept that we will have them and learn to recognise the early signs, there are two choices. Well, actually there are many choices, but here is a common choice many people make and an alternative that might work.

One, spiral downwards into the vortex of self-loathing, beatings, misery and frustration that is a pit of despair that we can wallow in for hours or longer, depending on how skilled we are at making ourselves feel even worse.

Or, two, we can accept that it’s not going to be a great day and pledge to get at least one good thing done or one good piece of learning from the day. Often best to stop what we are doing and go and do something completely random and small, something that we know we can achieve and gain the feel-good of doing that.

If you select option two, chances are that when we do something small and finish it, we might find another small thing to do and so on. Chances are, we won’t have had the best day ever, but there we go, that’s life, but we will have avoided the pit of despair that more than likely leads us to have more than one bad day.
