…or is everything a little bit crap at the moment?
Any time I mention my woes to someone they present me with a tirade of issues they’re bravely soldiering on through which, quite frankly, cause my troubles to pale into insignificance. It feels like there’s not one person who isn’t having a bad time of it. Deaths, break ups, depression, disease, worries about jobs, affairs, family fueds, money troubles, bad grades…the list goes on.
We sometimes played a game, around the dinner table at home, of ‘best bit, worst bit’, where everyone would share the best bit and worst bit of their day. I still attempt this with the housies from time to time, but recently I’ve been trying to focus on the ‘best bit’ only, sometimes it helps to review the day and realise it wasn’t as bad as you thought.
So here’s a plea for some good news, from you…yes you reading this! Take a moment to leave a comment on the best bit, from today, from this week, or even this year if you’re really struggling. Even if you’re reading this post a week after it was written, if it’s been a month or a year…overload me with your best bits, and lets see if we can share some smiles to make these grey clouds bugger off!
And if you’re one of the many having a bad time of it at the moment, please know you’re not alone and it’s going to be ok. We’ve all made it this far, survived 100% of what life has thrown at us, so why should this be any different? One step, one breath, one day at a time. That’s my manta, you’re more than welcome to share it x
