Yesterday sucked. Seriously there is no other way to state it. The thing is it was a really good crappy day. Everything kind of blew up yesterday and I was met with crap every way I turned. It was a great lesson!
I know, you are stuck on the “good crappy day” aren’t you?
Here is how that came about. I accepted it. I was in the process of working my self in to a down right negative frenzy over it and then I poked myself in the eye. I don’t even know how I did it, but I put my finger right in to it. That is when I stopped with the expectations. Holding my right hand over my right eye I just said “Okay Wednesday. You suck. I got it.” At that point I just rolled with it.
The rest of the day was still full of challenges and smack downs, but I just kept accepting that it was the day. I actually had a day that sucked and I admitted that it sucked with a smile on my face. The acceptance of being tired, cramping, allergies raging, work requests coming left and right, loved ones in rough places, and people not hearing what I was saying made all the difference in the world. It just was.
Life is going to throw curve balls and some days grenades that look like bouncy balls. I am learning that these days just are. Accepting them and learning what we can from them makes life much easier.
BTW… Thursday looks like it might be a better day, but I am going to let it unfold before I cling to that.
