You know those days when you feel as if you’re on top of the world? They don’t last long, do they? It seems as if they are quickly followed by days where you are full of doubt and often wonder if things will ever get better. The wonderful, confident days should remain fixed in your mind as you push through the ones that drain you.
“Sometimes the hardest part of the journey is believing you’re worthy of the trip.”
– Glenn Beck
Bad days are inevitable. However, your mindset and perseverance will pull you into a feeling of freedom and allow you to focus on your happiness rather than sadness and depression.
Can you do it? Can you tell yourself that it will get better?
Sometimes the fight against negativity is a harder battle than you might expect, but you’re able to conquer it as long as you remind yourself constantly that it’s temporary.
One of my favorite reminders is, “Fake it until you make it.” There are many days when I’m feeling low and beat down by things I have no control over, or maybe I do and I’m just not there yet. Instead of letting these feelings consume me, I force a smile and pretend for the time being that it WILL be a good day and that it WILL get better.
