Today started bad and only got worse. It’s days like these that make me want to escape to a log cabin in the mountains somewhere far away. Ever feel like that?
It started with me feeling nauseous and only got worse with me making someone angry, which then made me feel physically sick.
This isn’t the first bad day on record, nor will it be the last. Quite a few of you will have much more valid bad-day reasons than my small troubles. But the woe we feel is real to us, even when trivial to others.
So it’s not new, we all get those days, and if we are going to get anywhere we have to keep plugging away.
What keeps us going?
A big boost came from my twitter followers sympathy and cheer-ups. They didn’t judge me, they didn’t tell me how they had it worse (while I expect many do), they just sent me some good vibes. That makes me smile.
The lesson there is be nice when you are riding high and things are going well now because some day you might want some nice back.
Next booster is knowing what I am in this for. My daughter came home from school. She lit up the room. Kind of puts things in perspective. It often helps to look at the big picture, think of what will be important to you next year or ten years from now.
How do you deal with the off days when everything you touch turns to poo?
