I have had a crappy week, really crappy! As I was driving to work this morning I was having my pity party and thinking about how crappy (did I tell you it was a really crappy week?!). I even started to think, this could be one of the worst weeks E-V-E-R! Then my mind came to a screeching halt!
Worst week? Not even close! I have had MUCH worse! Then I started to analyze the pieces of the week bit by bit. When you hold them up and compare them to your worst day ever, they really are pretty trivial. And suddenly, my week wasn’t so bad after all.
Perspective came in small doses.
Money is just money! You can’t take it with you when you go and it will not buy you happiness. Cross money problems off the list.
Things are just things, material items can be fun and make you think your happy but really when it all comes down to it, it’s just a thing. Cross material items off the list!
People’s opinions only matter if you choose to let them matter! I am who I am. I know my heart, the people who love me know my heart. Haters don’t matter, cross them off the list!
Mean and spiteful people are making their lives miserable, they might give me a bad day but they live in darkness. Cross them off the list.
HUH? The worst week E-V-E-R all of a sudden wasn’t looking so bad! Now, don’t get me wrong. I would have been very happy not to have this perspective and not know what “The Worst Day Ever” feels like, and I hope you never have to learn it this way. But if you have already had your “Worst Day Ever” or if you can imagine what it might be like, you really start to understand how little the little things matter! Fears evaporate, dread and over thinking go away. Why worry over things you can’t change? If nobody is going to die, than the situation probably isn’t that bad. If you get to wake up in the morning and try again, then you have HOPE!
Now that I have gotten The Worst Day of my Life out of the way, I better get to creating the Best Day of my Life! I have had some pretty good ones, so it’s going to be fun trying to top them!
