You know that feeling when a day starts bad. Often the result of feeling tired or drowsy, or due to a lack of clear direction for that day, these days are enough to break your spirit. They are hard to work through and even harder to turn around into a good day.
Bad days are inevitable and we will need to face them at some point in the future. But these bad days teach us a great skill – thankfulness. When we become grateful that each day is not as bad as those, we begin to see how greatly blessed we really are.
Sometimes it takes a bad day to help us see the bountiful blessings in our lives!
When I had a bad day, I look at myself in the mirror and say, “I love myself. I am safe.Today is a great day and tomorrow will be twice as great!”
- I know enjoy many blessings every day
- I know how to it feels to enjoy many blessings
- It is possible for me to enjoy countless blessings
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.
Sometimes I win and sometimes I learn
Often times, it is also true that bad days are there to teach us something. Bad days decrease our attitude and make us wonder how life can be so hard on us. But the truth is, this happens to everybody – rich or poor, famous or ordinary, young and old – everybody. I found that a marvelous way for me to get past a bad day is to sit down at my computer and read up about how other people face bad days. Firstly, when I listen to highly successful people share their thoughts on how to overcome those days, I learn a great deal of wonderful techniques to apply in my own life. Secondly, I quickly realize that my bad days are not nearly as bad when compared to others. This lifts my spirits once again and gets me ready to face tomorrow.
Try it for yourself once. It does work…

Checklist for today
- Having a bad day? Whenever you do, try to point out which things in those days are responsible for disrupting your day.
- Next, realize that those things are never present on good days (which are most of the days in your life), and be thankful for it!
- When you feel like you had a bad day, do a quick Google and try to find stories of how other people have overcome their bad days or difficult times.
- Try to learn from their ideas, and apply it to your own life. Find something that works great for you!
