Now this is a mindset I will work with. No matter what happens, there are no bad days.
I recently came across the expression, “no bad days”, and thought well wouldn’t that be great! However, the more I thought about it, the more I wondered if it’s as simple as deciding to have a positive outlook even when things don’t seem so positive.
Often time we talk about having good days and bad days, however, how we perceive things can determine whether or not our day is good or bad. How we react to the things that happen to us is what really matters, not that things go wrong. In life it is impossible for something not to go wrong, but being upset or even getting nasty about it only makes it worse; it is at this stage that we really have a bad day. We can’t see beyond that one bad moment and think logically through it. Instead we marinate on it and allow ourselves to really have a bad day.
To have a good day, we need to turn our back on the things that can cause us to view life negatively. Instead of dwelling on it and giving it life, we can diminish the power it has to undermine our positive outlook, by not remaining in it. When things do not turn out the way we want them to, maybe it wasn’t suppose to be. So, we need to let go of what we can’t control and do the best we can.
To really see the glass half full, we need to be humble and stay calm in moments where our good days are under attack.
