Everyone knows what it’s like to have a good day. You wake up and feel good about yourself and the day ahead and you are on a high. Smiling and grinning at people and seeing every beautiful thing around you. You hear birds chirping and children laughing as you go about your day. You feel happy. Today is a good day.
Everyone knows what it’s like to have a bad day. You wake up and feel horrible about yourself. You feel fat. You feel ugly. You think that everything is going to go against you today. You get up and everything goes wrong. You spill a drink, you can’t get your trousers on and you just want to cry. Walking out of your house and you hear car horns blasting the air and raised voices. The rain get’s you wet and all you want is your bed.
Just a typical scenario of how a good day and bad day can go. We all have them. There can be times when it just doesn’t feel like your day and it can be really hard to experience a day like this. Sometimes I’ve had it when one things that’s said or done can make me want to burst into tears. There are days where we don’t feel okay, and don’t know why we feel down but it is something we all go through and is fine to feel this way. All we need at times like these are a hug and reassurance that things are going to be okay. Remember, it’s okay not to be okay.
I’m sure we can all recall a bad and good day. For example, on Tuesday my day was horrible. It was one of those days when everything was going wrong and I was super stressed. Although you try to stay calm, it can tend to result in you crying or breaking down. Once I had sorted out what I needed to do, I felt better and more able to carry on now things were looking up. I had finally sorted it and could go home. These days can occur to anyone, more to some people than others. If this type of day does happen to you, try and speak to someone and be honest. If there’s something on your mind or you feel stressed, tell them that. Let it all out. It’s surprising how much people can help you. If you don’t know what’s wrong with you and it’s just one of those days, try and ride it out but do things that make you happy. Watch a film, read or surround yourself with people you love and care for. Do something to put a smile on that lovely face of yours.
Sometimes, days can be really hard to handle and you feel as though you just want the next day to come, and some days are so good that you don’t want it to end. Try and do what makes you happy and look to what’s positive. You may not be having the best day but you’ve received a nice compliment or the weather’s nice out. Try and find something good about the day and hold onto it tight.
We’ve all been through a rubbish day and we’ve all been through a lovely one. Both need to be done to make you appreciate things more. Having a bad day can make you enjoy the good ones. Having a good day can make you feel as if you’re on a high. Learn from both types of days.
Always remember, it is okay not to be okay. Some days are better than others and some days are worse. Take what you can through these days and try and stay positive.
Until next time,
