How I Deal With A Bad Day

It seems that lately – for whatever reason – I’ve had a string of bad luck.  Well, some call it bad luck, others call it life – I call it Murphy’s Law.  Because for the last couple of months it seems that “anything that could go wrong – WENT WRONG!”

Funny how things like this goes in cycles – at least for me anyway.  In the past couple of months I’ve dealt with death, financial debacles, family arguments, work struggles and over all bad days…just to name a few.  But I know, and believe, that which doesn’t kill us makes us stronger (or screw us up mentally).

So I thought I would share with you what it is that I do when times get tough.  First and foremost I turn to God – then I turn to music.  All types of music, from classical to heavy metal – old to new – and even a little rap (yes, I have some Eminem in my playlist – don’t judge me!)

Reading inspirational quotes is another therapy I use.  Here are some of my favorites – and who knows, maybe one or more of these might help you out when you’re having a bad day!

“Just as despair can come to one only from other human beings, hope, too, can be given to one only by other human beings.” – Elie Weisel


“Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.” – Robert Schuller


“The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials.” – Chinese Proverb


“If you’re going through hell, keep going.” — Winston Churchill


“Acknowledge that you failed, draw your lessons from it, and use it to your advantage to make sure it never happens again.” — Michael Johnson


“It is never too late to be who you might have been.” — George Eliot


“When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.” –  Unknown


“Make failure your teacher, not your undertaker.” — Zig Ziglar


“You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness.” ― Jonathan Safran Foer


“Don’t be ashamed to weep; ’tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.” ― Brian Jacques, Taggerung

There will be days that are bad and days that are good – and we all deal with bad times differently.  But remember, you are allowed to take a pause from life from time to time to regroup.  And as my mother always tells me – “Amy, this too shall pass.”
