We’ve got good days.
Those days when everything goes “right”.
We wake up well rested.
The weather is beautiful.
People are kind, courteous, and helpful.
Our time is spent doing things that satisfy and fulfill us.
We’ve also got bad days.
We wake up on the wrong side of the bed.
It’s cold and rainy.
Everyone seems out for themselves, rude, and inconsiderate.
Seconds and hours feel wasted, doing what we must.
Much of this is subjective.
What one considers a bad day, another might consider good.
And vice versa.
Somebody always has things better.
Somebody always has things worse.
It’s up to us how we look at our lot in life.
It’s our responsibility to decide how we’re going to feel about what’s going on.
We’ve got that choice.
We’ve got that power.
Agency over our thoughts and feelings.
We’ve also got the ability to take action.
To do what we can to make our life what we want it to be.
To pursue our best life.
You could depend on others.
You could turn to external circumstances.
You could rely on factors outside of you to dictate your state of being.
Doing so, however, resigns the little control you have.
The control over your mind.
If you don’t make it a good day, who will?
Nobody is as invested in you as you.
Work to make your life better.
Work toward what you want.
Do the work.
This will not be easy.
There will be days that are difficult.
Moments that hurt.
Things people say and do that cause pain.
Times when you just feel numb or down.
This is a process.
Observe these feelings.
Work to keep perspective.
To remember your blessings.
The things that are going well.
The ways things could be worse.
Do also what you can.
This will take practice.
Practice and work.
But you are worthy.
You are worthy of the best life.
Whether that’s your life as it is.
Or your life as you want it to be.
You’ll always play a central role.
How you view it is up to you.
You’ve got this.
