3 Ways To Deal With A Bad Day
We all have either bad situations or bad people to deal with. Sometimes a little too much badness for one day hits us. This week has been a doozy. And I know I'm not the only person that's had a rough week and or day this week! If you are struggling with a difficult person or situation, read on my buttercups, read on, and may my words soothe your heart like chapstick on some crackly dry lips!
#1. Don't let anyone's poopy attitude stink up your day!
You don't need to look hard to find someone with a bad attitude and a bad way of treating people...they are like flies on poop: EVERYWHERE! The beauty is, we can sit there and talk to the flies on the poop, engage with them, keep smelling the stink....or we can say:
"You crawl all over this poop all you want, but I'm heading to smell some flowers!"
Sometimes you just have to get away from the "fly" and remember, even if they try to come buzzing after you, with poop still on their legs, you say "shoo fly don't bother me....go take your poop and stink up someplace else".
Ain't no body got time to spend smelling what the fly's been landing on. Keep your nose in the flowers of happiness and don't let anyone pop your bubble of joy- I don't care how many sharp-bubble-popping things they have in their hand!
#2. Strength only comes when we have to and face something hard!
If you grew muscles by sitting on the couch watching reality shows, what an easy time we'd have! But, no, you've got hit the gym, hit the pavement, move your body, pump some iron- your muscled have to do something hard, get torn apart and then get built up stronger! You can take the hard times and even difficult people and grow stronger, wiser, and more savvy from each experience. We can grow strong, or we can grow bitter...growing stronger is always the best choice. Grow strong baby and flex your, "i got this!" muscles! Some of the most amazing people I've ever known, are the ones who've been through the most difficult situations in life.
#3. Be like an owl, dont' give a HOOT! (or at least that's what Uncle Si's shirt said! ha ha ha)
We all have bad days, and "bad" or difficult people can be found more often than a Starbucks! The less you care about a person, the problems they are making, or the trouble they are giving you, or the negative words they are spewing out, the better you'll be.
At the end of the day, life is short, and how much will, what they are saying, or doing really impact your entire life?! Even if it will, know that peace can be found in a quick prayer. "Say a prayer, and let go of the care..." Giving the stress away, letting it melt off you and focusing on the good in your day, the dreams in your heart, will let the sparkles of happiness and hope start bubbling up from inside your heart!
Troubles and troublesome people will always be coming our way....but we are going to be like a Gold Medal Olympic Hurdler...we're gonna be strong and fast and learn to jump higher and faster over the "problem hurdles" and "problem people" in our lives!
Huge hugs and so much love, from your fellow problem hurdler, Kandee "the hurdler" Johnson
