Life isn’t so bad


Our life isn’t always as bad as it seems inside our heads. Our opinions and emotions are nurtured by what we know and what we’ve seen. But if you were to look from the outside, what might you see? Would it be a bad life like the one we’ve conjured up in our heads? Or would it be a life to be grateful for? There are others looking in who envy your life, who are wishing for a life like yours, who are perhaps even fighting for it. Take a step back and let’s quit making it out to be so bad. Because it really isn’t. It could be worse. And there’s a lot going for you, for many of us.

A good day

Not every day will be a ‘good’ day. But there’s still something good in every day, no matter how small: an accomplishment, a smile, a hug, a chat, a cup of coffee, a book, a bath, a walk, a song. If today isn’t turning out to be a good day, there’s still time to turn it around. Bad days don’t equal a bad life. They just make us appreciate the good even more.

Finding good in the bad


Sometimes all we can do is make the best out of a bad situation. We cannot control what other people say or do, and that can negatively affect us. We cannot always predict where we’ll spend most of our time, and that can negatively infect us. As much as we want to let the bad situation take over, we have to try to find the piece of light in the darkness. There’s always something to be discovered, something to be learned, something to be enjoyed. We just have to teach ourselves to see it. Even if it’s a simple as realising you need a change.

The power inside


We all hold power. Power in our mind, power in our words, power in our actions, power in our emotions. We may not always feel it, but it’s always there. Don’t hand it over to someone else. Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise. You have the power to do an immense amount of good in your own life and in the world. You can do what you want, say what you want, be what you want. You’re stronger than you know. Use it wisely.

You never know what might happen tomorrow

Butterfly quote

Stars are formed in a cloud of dust. The cloud of gas and dust collapses under it’s own gravitational attraction. And a protostar is born, made up of some of the gas and dust it’s gathered in the process. What does this have to do with you? Well, you never know what might happen tomorrow. If you think your world is ending or you feel your world is unclear, remember you never know what might happen tomorrow. All the trouble and turmoil is building you into a star. A beautiful, bright star. Have faith. And don’t give up too easily. Your world isn’t ending, it’s just beginning.

Thought of the Day: Bad days

Bad day patrick stump quote

We all have off-days. And that’s ok. Sometimes we have a slow start or a dramatic end. Sometimes we keep emitting negative energy and other times we keep absorbing it. Sometimes we’re turned inside out and upside down. Sometimes we’re exhausted and tested, and other times we’re lonely and forgotten. Feel free to wallow a little. But whatever the bad day, we can always brighten it up or turn it around, even if that means waiting for the clock to strike midnight to start afresh. A bad day doesn’t equal a bad life. Sometimes we just need a few to put the good ones into perspective.
