A Bad Day Doesn’t Mean A Bad Life

We are all entitled to have at least one bad day, right?

I don’t like bad days because that mean something is wrong? But what is it? Why am I having a bad day. I am grateful for each day to be alive. I am truly thankful to God for my life.

BUT I AM HAVING A BAD DAY!

I think I know what it is. I think it’s our new norm. I am learning to adapt. I am experiencing a pandemic. This is new territory for me! I can’t seem to adjust. I have heard of pandemics but never thought I would experience one. I have seen this in movies but never thought I would actually live it.

IS THIS THE END! THE APOCALYPSE!

In the future, I will be able to tell my grand kids what it was like. I will be able to tell them I survived but I had a few bad days. I can explain how I felt about the uncertainty. I will be able to show them how they can survive if they ever experience a pandemic in their lifetime.

I AM LIVING THROUGH A PANDEMIC!

Right now, we are experiencing a lot of uncertainty. Uncertainty does not bring peace or optimism. Uncertainty brings confusion, frustration, depression, and negative thoughts. Right now nothing is definite or concrete.

SO I AM ENTITLED TO A BAD DAY!

I feel really bad because I am having a bad day. When in all actuality I should be entitled to one. I have worked so hard to be optimistic and to lead a positive life.

BUT I’M ENTITLED TO ONE BAD DAY NOT TWO!

A bad doesn’t make it a bad life. It purely means that you are having a bad day. There is a pandemic going on and thousands of people around the world are dying, many people are loosing there jobs, and human interaction has been limited to social distancing.

While you are having a bad day, don’t consume yourself with so much it takes over your peace and positive thoughts.

Remember that, you will have:

  • Good Days
  • Bad Day
  • Ok Days
  • Overwhelming Days
  • Exhausting Days
  • Unbelievable Days
  • I’m awesome days
  • I can’t go on days

AND EVERYDAY YOU WILL SHOW UP!

You are entitled to one bad day, not a bad life because after all it’s apart of the beautiful struggle.

    well said, LaShawn! These are strange and worrisome times indeed, and I think we are all having a bad day here and there. But as you point out, that’s to be expected, and we just need to keep things in perspective. I hope you are staying safe and healthy!
