If you cry because the sun has gone out of your life,
your tears will prevent you from seeing the stars.
Yesterday was one of those days. You know, a day when things aren't going the way you think they should. Nothing really tragic or earth shattering was happening, and I recognized that fact, but little irritations were getting the best of me.
To begin with, I wasn't feeling very well. I have this inner ear thing that sometimes causes dizziness when I move. There were things I wanted to do and places to go, so I did them anyway, weaving around and trying to keep my balance as I went. And there were little things that felt like they mattered more than they did.
My attitude wasn't at it's best, either, and that was a lot of the problem.
When I took my husband out to lunch (we have a weekly lunch "date"), I began to feel better. I always enjoy spending time with my husband, and by the time I took Fred back to work, I felt much better. I noticed how beautiful the fall leaves looked, all red, orange, gold, and green. I still had a "to-do" list a mile long, but it all seemed more manageable.
I didn't accomplish everything on my list, but it was alright, I didn't really mind. Just spending some time with my husband had made all the difference in my attitude and my day.
How do you handle a bad day?
