We have all had them – a day that starts bad and gets worse: The dog wouldn’t come in which made you late for work. In a hurry and fumbling for keys, you drop your phone on the driveway and crack the screen. Your boss/foreman/assistant looks like she’s in a sour mood as you walk by. Then lunch rolls around, but not for you. Your lunch is still sitting on the kitchen counter. Sound familiar?
When a bad day creeps up on you –

  1. Remember, life is not perfect.
  2. Look for the lesson.
  3. Today will come to an end, and you have tomorrow.
  4. No matter how bad it may seem right now, someone somewhere, has it worse. Count your blessings.
  5. It’s okay to cry.
  6. Don’t be proud; it takes courage to ask for help.
  7. On a bad day, there are always things to be thankful for: find and name three of them.
  8. Take a deep breath, find a reason for a good belly laugh.

When you find yourself at the end of a bad day, remember, it’s just a day; tomorrow is a clean slate. Spend the evening doing something you enjoy, go to bed early and say your prayers. You’re welcome.

The road is easier together,
