I just wanted to write a quick post to just share some reflections that I have had recently. Remember that there will always be bad days and good days. You can’t just have only good days all the time because life is not like that! That wouldn’t be real! We are humans, and we make mistakes and these have repercussions sometimes and I’m not necessarily talking about your own mistake but also when others make mistakes that directly affect you too.
Have you ever experienced the feeling of happiness because things are going well and you are just enjoying that moment but then because of someone else’s mistake that feeling goes away completely and now instead of feeling on top of the world you suddenly feel you are at the bottom of it? Literally, a crash down to earth? Everything suddenly turns from a good day to a bad day. Have you felt like that?
I felt like that a few days ago. I don’t want to go into the details into why I felt like that because that is not the purpose of this post but what I would like to discuss here is that this type of feeling was there and I couldn’t avoid feeling that. What I would like to say and what I have been telling myself is that this type of feeling will not stay forever. I should remind myself that it is something temporary because as I said, life is like that, full of bad days and good days but nothing stays forever. We need to go through all these emotions (ups and downs like a rollercoaster) because that is part of being alive!
Now I must stress before proceeding that the issue was not romantically related so please don’t get the wrong idea. I’m more than happy with Nick, I couldn’t choose a better husband. It can sometimes be the simplest of things that can come from anywhere that can make you feel like that.
There is a phrase that I learned when I was 16 years old from the classic movie, “Gone with the Wind” starring Clark Gable as Rhett Butler and Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O’Hara. This is the context of the phrase:
“I can’t let him go. I can’t. There must be some way to bring him back. Oh, I can’t think about this now! I’ll go crazy if I do! I’ll think about it tomorrow. But I must think about it. I must think about it. What is there to do? What is there that matters? Tara! Home. I’ll go home. And I’ll think of some way to get him back. After all… tomorrow is another day!”
This phrase has always been stuck in my head since then and it is something that I’ve always repeated to my myself every time that things don’t go in the way I’ve planned them. You just have to fight and be persistent. Never stop thinking about and aiming for a positive outcome. Never stop trying to get a solution to your problem and most of all, never give up as the next day can be a better day! There is always a hope of knowing that after all… tomorrow is another day!!
Do you also have those days? What do you do? Do you also think things will be better the next day when you have a cleared head. Leave your comment below as I would love to know what you think.
Thanks for stopping by,
Love you all ❤️
