Mama Said They’ll Be Days Like This

I’m not going to sugarcoat it for you guys — I’ve been having a series of bad days lately.

It’s so easy to let bad days get to you, isn’t it? You start to feel inadequate about your job, relationships, routine, and pretty soon you feel like you have a bad life.

These are all lies, my friends!

Circumstances don’t define who you are — how you deal with them does. And that’s the hardest part — dealing with disappointments and setbacks and stress with joy.

And yet sometimes we need to go through hard times to realize what is truly important — and not important — in life in order for things to change.

“I have come that you may have life, and have it more abundantly. ” – John 10:10

  • I agree Gin, I have had a couple bad weeks as well. I hope for both of us, that things will get better :)

  • It’s hard not to let one bad thing ruin everything else. However, I try to focus on the good things that does happen to rear the negatives out of my life. I hope your days get better. Keep on Keeping on.

  • Last week I budgeted to include a job that fell through, leaving me -$200 from what I was expecting. The next day my iPhone fell and shattered. I started to wonder if a black cloud was following me!? However, the stinky mood has lifted, my phone has clear packing tape on it, and things are going to be fine. If I lived close by, I’d offer you some clear packing tape to fix whatever’s ailing you! :) Keep your chin up, plenty of people love this blog and you’re probably more appreciated than you think.

  • Thanks for this post. I was having a really rough day yesterday and managed to convince myself that I was an abject failure in all aspects of my life. A good friend was there for part of it, and took me out for fro-yo to cheer me up. Then, another friend who I very much respect and look up to, took me aside, said he could tell I was stressed, gave me a hug and offered an ear or a hand, whichever I needed.
