Give bad days a black eye.


If a bad day tries to sneak in and ruin your day, punch it hard.

Right in the face.

Don’t let it take hold of you. Don’t give it that power.

The other day I had a series of clumsy and frustrating things happen. You know the days where you drop your toast and, OF COURSE, it lands peanut butter side down.

Before 10am I was at work, joking that I should go home before I hurt myself or someone else.

But that joke saved me. I literally started telling people the crazy little things that’d gone wrong and we laughed. The frustration and impatience that stemmed from the incidents vaporized.

So when things are frustrating, whether it’s little annoyances to huge things, we can’t let it ruin us for the day.

Don’t give it that power.

I know we can’t laugh everything off, but we can find some people to talk things through with. It might even help lighten the load you’re carrying.

You are not alone.

You are strong.

You are worth it.
