If not, have these big chunks of positive vibes, love and light! I promise it will not make you fat, only have your heart grow a bit more and we all want that! Yeeeeey!!!!
First of all I apologise for being late with this post. That’s my bad. I’ll make a recovery and work at it but thank you so much for your patience. So today, as by the title, I am inspired by bad days. Yes I know it’s odd to derive strength and inspiration from a bad day, but I have found a new respect for bad days.
As usual I want to let you in and be real with you. You know one of those moments when there is a dark cloud above your head. It’s just a cloud and it’s not raining. So we keep a positive mind and try to rise above the darkness. Then it comes to a point whereby we are smiling but the irritation behind the smile is growing. But you feel that the things you need to do don’t allow for a bad mood. So you keep it on the back burner until it starts spreading to part of your eyes. (read soul)
I’m not sure if I am making sense but this is what was happening to me. It felt like a bad couple of weeks. Small things irritated me so easily and I became rude and moody and quiet. All of those not positive or yellow in any way. So what did you do Jacky? Thanks for asking.
Let me give you a list and I hope this helps you. And if you have other ways, you are welcome to share them with me. I would love to learn something new from you.
- Take a breathe
Sometimes it’s just pressure. When we have a lot of things on our plate, it may cloud our judgement and focus. So when I feel overwhelmed and I can go to the ladies, I go in there, take a breathe and speak some light into myself. Like I say, “You can do this. Do your best and let the rest fall into place.” Then I step out and go and handle whatever I need to handle.
Or if I cannot go to the ladies, I stop for a moment and just breath for five seconds. Sounds weird but those five seconds help me refocus, restart somehow.
- Outside the box
When stressed or when having a bad day, we feel like we are in a box that has been turned up the heat too high or has been chilled too low. So what I do is that I take my mind out of the situation. What I do is I listen to new music or I colour adult mandala colouring pages. If you Google it, you’ll find downloadable pages. It’s an activity that takes time but really zones in on the mind which is the goal hehe.
- Be a friend
Sometimes we are too hard on ourselves and yet we are the ones supposed to be our biggest supporters. Some problems need us to step up and be great. So what do I do? Thanks for asking (I’m smiling right now because this is just what I did). There was a piece some time back that said to meet yourself, you need to stand in front of the mirror and count backwards from ten.
Some people who do this (including myself) either are not able to do it or cry before or ten. I’m not asking you to do this. All I do is stand in front of the mirror, look into my eyes (like a weird person of course) and say “I love you and I think you are amazing!”
- Work on it
Let’s be honest, if someone caused you hurt you need to handle it. Logically, that is the progression. If you hurt someone else, you need to work on that. If you were on the wrong side like I was rude, we need to step up and apologise or smoothen the situation one way or another. We cannot initiate our own bad days and think that we will just sail through them unharmed. I believe in karma and I believe in ‘Treat others as you want to be treated’.
We cannot be lazy in our lives, we need to be awake. At the end of the day may we be filled with love and joy even when we do not feel as good. This is because we can do this! If it is a situation within our control to change then let’s change it. If it is not, then let’s change our perception on it.
- Positive vibes
Hehe the things above seem somewhat intense and deep. This one, not so much. It’s about bringing a smile on your face. Whatever you need to do that will make you feel good, do it. As long as it is not going around stepping on other people’s toes, that will only do the opposite. And also not drugs. We are not running away from a bad day, we are facing it head on because we are BAWSES in training!
You could watch a movie, a comedy, get some ice cream,listen to music, hang out with people who make you feel good about yourself, read an epic book, go on an adventure, try something new, spark up a conversation with a stranger, go on a drive or a ride. Whatever works for you my dear. There is nothing as beautiful to the soul as being around things and people who just bring positive vibes to you.
It is the cherry or berry or grape, whichever you prefer, on top of the already epic dessert whis is you! These are things I actually do. Tell me what you do when you have a bad day, I would love to hear from you. We all have bad days, just know that we all have bad days and good days. So as always I send you positive vibes, love and light and most of all I have nothing but love and respect for you! Because you are awesome just as you are!!!!
Thanks for reading and have a good one!
