Post to those suffering from a so-so day, an ugh-what-am-I-doing-with-my-life day—we shall not:
** feel down or depressed because the job market isn’t looking good
** worry about something that is totally out of our control
** be envious of others just because it appears they have it all
** groan and moan because it’s another Monday and the routine hasn’t changed
** fret about the future
** be anxious about money
** have regrets or misgivings.
Second post to those suffering from a so-so day, an ugh-what-am-I-doing-with-my-life day—we shall:
** recognize that where there is a will, there is a way; jobs/futures are out there to be had so continue to seek and adopt
** move on and let go—if it’s not in our control, why get sick or stressed about it?
** know that having it all does not = joy (that super rich person we all know may have a whack of debt, insecurities, misery, and/or illness)
** smile, because smiling brightens the day and mood
** live in the now, because who the <bleep> knows what tomorrow will bring
** open our arms and minds, and manifest; that which brings us closer to our dreams is in reach
** realize that anything done in past, in error or through immaturity or foolishness, is truly done.
Faith, whatever your belief, is an absolute must. Sure, shit happens. That’s part of life; it can’t be all roses, sunshine and rainbows, champagne and truffles. If we had that all the time, how would we know when to count blessings, express gratitude, convey commitment, or demonstrate devotion?
Really? What purpose to those so-so, ugh days serve? I don’t like dragging my feet. Don’t care to see my chin on my lap or my face looking like I’ve been sucking on sour pickles all day.
To those black clouds encircling my head and heart, I say—back off! You’re not taking me down another minute!
As sure as God makes little green apples, another one of those days will come. But next time, I’m going to win the round, the big bout. No more slip-ups . . . or slip-downs, as the case may be. They’re a done deal.
