No one can claim to have a perfect life. Even in a very good month, there will be some moments when you look at your life and wonder why it is handing you such bitter lemons. Truth is, we cannot have the highs without the lows…
I am learning to take my highs with the lows that accompany them. I recently had to remind myself that a bad day does not equal a bad life. I was having such a bad week and thought my life was just miserable. Took a couple of losses in that week; material, academic and some emotional. I really felt miserable and at that moment, I didn’t see how I could be happy again.
But here I am now…it’s a brand new day. My life is still imperfect, but as I write and reflect; I accept that life has seasons of highs and lows. Just by acknowledging that I feel so much better. I don’t have it all figured out but here is what I know:
- I know that today is different from yesterday.
- I know that what I tell myself is what will determine how my day turns out.
- I know that what I feed my mind has the ability to shift my mood, so I will choose wisely what I read or listen to.
- I know I have to take control of my day and in a small way, my life.
Sometimes that is all we can do…live one day at a time. But LIVE!!!
I hope this encourages someone today.
