Everybody has a bad day every now and then, right? I know it’s not just me. But, man oh man. I am in my feelings right now! Ughhhhh. I am not sure what is going on with me. I feel like I can’t get myself together these past couple of days. Heck, these past few weeks! Months? Let’s talk about how to stay positive when your day isn’t.
I think I feel guilty for not being busy.
It seems when I have those days where not much is going on, I get anxious and start to feel guilty. I think I forgot how to rest. I wish I were motivated to do some spring cleaning or something to make me feel productive. Actually, I wish I would allow myself to realize that resting is productive. Majorly beneficial, productive, and necessary for the mind, body, and spirit. I know this, and yet I struggle with it. Big time.
I am married with two recently-turned-teenagers who play two sports each and keep us running 95% of the time. This usually means that I am usually being pulled in several directions at any given time. Why in the heck am I feeling guilty or out of place when I actually have a “day off”? No sports practice to rush to for a total of five days. It should feel like a vacation! Instead, I feel like I’m a slacker wife/mom/person in general. WTH?
And then there’s this…
Not to mention, the fact that I’m unemployed or “without a full time income” is weighing heavy on me right now. I know that being a wife and SAHM IS a full time job. I’ve done it. I’m doing it. I know this. Totally a full time commitment. Anyone who says any different has never experienced it. Having a full time job is almost a “break” a lot of times. So, again I ask. WTH?
If it were not for the fact that I know I am a good person and an intelligent woman who is capable of amazing things and called to greatness, I might be worried. Good thing I know better. And here’s another thing I know, that I know, that I know. This too shall pass, and tomorrow is a new day! I can’t let one or two bad days of me “being in my feelings” spiral into a full scale depression episode. It’s not happening. No, thank you. I will overcome. Because, let’s face it…I don’t have a choice. I have a life to live.
Yes, Everybody Has a Bad Day Now and Then
But we can choose to set a new direction. We can CHOOSE to stay positive, even when our day isn’t. So, I will grab my bag of tricks and hightail it out of this pity party I have been suckered into. Hopefully, I won’t return tomorrow. But if I do, you will find me right here spilling my guts, blasting my truth, and pulling myself back up once again. Because the only ones who lose, are the ones who give up. Not me, not today, not happening. I’ve got this…and so do you!
I ain’t no quitter,
