Had A Bad Day?

You had a bad day/You’re taking one down/You sing a sad song just to turn it around/You say you don’t know/You tell me don’t lie/You work out a smile and you go for a ride”

— Daniel Powter, Singer/Songwriter

Yes, we have all had that day when nothing goes right and all you want to do is hide. You feel lonely and there is no one by your side. No one understands you. The worst thing is; that one bad day can feel like an eternity and at some point it becomes an eternity. And that is when you lose every ounce of hope you have ever had.

But you know what? It does not have to be that way. You have the courage to come out of that tiny hiding place and face yourself. You are your own greatest barrier so why let others get you down? All you have to do is be true to yourself and that is when others will see you in that way too.

“Non è importante che faccia hai, ma che faccia fai”

You are sad? Try watching a funny crazy video on YouTube for once instead of those sad, down in the dumps songs on your iPod. A laugh can make a difference.

You’re worried about the future? Make the present worth living and before you know it, the future will make itself better too.

As hard as it might seem, try looking at the brighter side of things. Trust me there is always a brighter side. If you do not find one, you simply make one.

I know it is easier said than done. But it can be done, so why hesitate?

You will be surprised how one small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day. Treat people the way you want them to treat you. At the end of the day what really matters is what you think of yourself. Be that person you are when no one is looking.

Oh and one last thing …

I think you’re pretty awesome. Have a lovely day.
