Not every day is a happy day. Some days, you just feel terribly empty, left behind and on occasion, utterly depressed. I revel on the feeling though, I savor it, and let it linger, but not for too long, because in these moments of darkness is where you also find some shimmer- a piece of happiness to hold on to and be grateful for.
Right now, the world is not in my favor- well it never was, but sometimes I like to think that it is and that I can control what happens and how I react, and what would happen next. I just feel lost and defeated when I am not able to take charge of certain aspects of my life, especially those that matter a lot to me- like my work and my relationships. So, here I am, trying to take ten deep breaths while I wait for my client to arrive. Every time I do, I don’t get relieved, I feel even heavier.
So… I explored the crazy, cluttered abyss of my mind for three good things, three good things that have happened to me that I can reflect on and that I can keep thinking about instead of those that weighs me down and here they are:
- I woke up- Not everyone could be as fortunate as I am to have heard the heavy rain pouring outside earlier. It wasn’t a sunny day, but still a day that I get to be here, and just live.
- I had a nice chat with a friend on my way to my evening work. Things in my life have been hectic lately and some days I just really want to slow down and rest, and today, a simple opportunity to catch up with someone have meant a lot. I’m happy about how he is progressing in his life, and that I know of it.
- The last thing, would be this, writing this down right now. Writing could really be quite therapeutic and for someone who haven’t written for a literally a long time, it feels really nice and brought a little smile on my face.
So I encourage you dear one, whenever you are having a bad day, try to recall three good things, hell why not make a habit of having three good things every day in your life, whether it be accidental or planned. You deserve three good things in your life every day and I encourage you to make them happen. When you do, let me assure you, no matter how bad your day has gone, you’d go to sleep feeling contented just by reflecting on those three good things.
