Ever had a bad day? Or, several bad days strung together? Its sucks, right? Whether it’s the jack-knifed tractor trailer causing a three hour commute home, train delays, a screaming kid on a flight or even food poisoning, these are all lackluster situations beyond your control. Yet, when you get home, you project your bad situation onto a loved one. You raise your voice, get angry, or complain as soon as you walk in the door.

Have you ever been on the receiving side of someone else’s bad day? Not fun, right?

It’s easy to complain. It’s easy to dwell on a situation that created upheaval in your life. Yet, few of us “take time to smell the roses”.

Instead of complaining or projecting your anger onto someone, ask yourself this.

What’s the opportunity in this?

A long commute may be the time needed to calm a brain that’s been overworked or overtaxed all day. It may be a time to practice some breathing techniques that calm you.

Food poisoning may be the universe telling you that your body really needs some rest.

What can you do to find the good on a bad day?

Listen for a kid’s laughter. Watch the leaves rustle in the wind. Notice beautiful flowers pop on an otherwise boring landscape.

How you choose to see the world is up to you. Today, what do you choose to see?

 

Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
