It’s not all sunshine and rainbows in life. There are times when you are in a sh*t storm of everything going wrong.
When I’m in that state, there is couple of thoughts that help me get over it:
In couple of days it will be over, no matter what.
People think that in stress time is an enemy, but actually, it’s a friend for me. Because time flies no matter what. And that means that in some specific time, this particular „issue“ will be over, one way or another.
You will learn from this experience.
Every experience has a potential for learning. Even the worst one. So go ahead and take what it has to offer.
Bad emotions are also emotions – the spice of life.
Without emotion we would be just robots. So enjoy the fact that you have some. Be it even anger, sadness, worry or whatever „bad feelings“, those are also important.
Come on, don’t be a whining little girl.
When nothing else works, I just start making fun of myself. That usually kicks my spirit up.
In the end, it is true what Charles R. Swindoll said:
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.
What about you? What do you tell to yourself, when it’s not all sunshine and rainbows around?
