You ever just have one of those days?
The sort of day where literally EVERYTHING goes wrong?
I’m having one of those WEEKS.
Emergency replacement of all the tires on my JEEP. Last minute meeting cancellations. Arguments with my wife.
The list goes on and on…
It almost feels like the the universe is conspiring against me!
All the stress is piling up, making it hard to work, which then stresses me out even more because I’m not getting my work done.
Ever feel like that?
It’s a vicious cycle, isn’t it?
I’m not some “woo woo” personal development guy, so I don’t really have any answers for dealing with situations this…
Other than to share what I do, which is:
1. I stop fighting it. I’ve learned that the more I fight things and the harder I push, the worse things seem to get.
So I go with the flow.
I refuse to feel bad about needing a day off. I refuse to feel bad about being depressed. Everyone gets a little down once in awhile… its totally natural.
If I need an afternoon nap (or even an entire day in bed) I embrace it and use the time to rejuvenate.
2. I remain grateful. Yes, expensive, emergency car repairs suck. Yes, arguing with my wife and falling behind with my goals and projects also sucks.
But you know what? I have a lot to be grateful for. So I just keep positive and keep moving forward 🙂
Anyways, hope this helps.
I better go and light some incense and do some meditative yoga or something!
