I refer to myself as a world-class overcomer.
Not because I never had a bad day, but quite the opposite.
I’ve had LOTS of them!
As it goes in the game of life, no matter how hard you try to avoid them, we all have bad days.
The goal is to have more good ones.
One would think a world-class overcomer would be able to see a bad day coming and steer clear, yet sometimes the opposite is true.
Overcomers are excellent at gratitude, finding silver linings, and knowing when to let go.
However, we might become so agile at navigating life’s obstacle courses that sometimes we get a little cocky and skip over a few steps.
Those shortcuts can create a terrible day.
Here are a few things that I do to ward off that bad day.
In other words, don’t let things pile up.
Not fully addressing a nagging problem or a situation always leads to a breaking point somewhere down the road.
The breaking point is always something small. You might over-toast a bagel, and that can lead to a complete meltdown.
Trust me on this.
“This is going to be a GREAT day!”
I say that out loud in the mornings when I need reminding.
You can call it an affirmation or a direct order.
Speaking words into the universe is a powerful thing. Keep track of all the good things that happen that day.
Get your smile on.
Smiling has a way of warding off negativity. It can trick your brain into happiness! A smile spurs a powerful chemical reaction in the brain that can actually make you feel happier.
Life is too short to have too many bad days. You’ve got this!
