‘Heartache Journal‘ is a series where each month I share some thoughts close to my heart in a journal style of post.
Good days vs Bad days
Every day is not going to be unicorns and rainbows, and that’s OK. There will be days when you don’t fart sunshine, when things don’t go as planned. Some days may feel like 2 steps forward and 5 steps back. It is OK. It doesn’t define you. It doesn’t speak of success or failure. Surrender into acceptance. Allow yourself to be human. Allow life to be real. Just be yourself.
Life is made up of small moments full of smiles and tears. These moments reminds us of the good days and sometimes the bad ones too. Good days and bad days– we all have our fair share of both! Nobody wants the bad ones but nobody can avoid them either. If you want the good days, you have automatically signed up for the bad days as well. They always come together, one followed by the other.
We desire the good days and desperately want to avoid the bad days. Nobody wants to feel awful and dreadful, which is how one feels while having a bad day. Let’s face it, bad days are pretty awful and dreadful. Why do we have to have them at all in our lives? Do they serve a purpose or teach a lesson every once in a while?
Think about the time when you had a or a series of bad day/s. What were the after effects? For me personally, those bad days played a balancing part in my life. When I think about it, they also gave perspective and significance to the good days. Imagine life had only good days to offer, then the good days would lose all of its popularity and meaning. The worst and frightening outcome of this would be losing already scarce human values such as Humility, Gratitude, Tolerance, Compassion and may be even love.
The bad days might bring one or two dark clouds in your life but they always lead the way for the clear sky. We would never understand the meaning of light without ever experiencing the dark. We want the good days but we would never come to realize why or what we want without those awful and dreadful bad days.
Today let’s be grateful for the good days, and even more for the bad days.
Do you agree with me on being grateful for both good and bad days?
How do you deal with your share of bad days?
