So, I wasn’t planning to post today but I felt like just letting my fingers type away. Today I woke up horrible! When I mean horrible, I mean HORRIBLE!. It’s spring season and my sinuses have been going crazy. I wake up with allergies and I go to sleep with allergies. Today I just woke up extra bad. My eyes were puffy and I felt like a tractor went over my body. If you don’t think that is bad enough, I looked in the mirror and I had the biggest pimple on the tip of my nose. I felt like a complete and utter disaster. After trying to get ready for class, I was late and forgot my homework at home. I just felt like the day was just going against me in every way possible. While I was in my french class, I kept on zoning out. I felt like my allergies were taking control of me. I just felt like the day was never going to get better.
I looked at the time and it was 10 a.m. and I already had in mind how bad my day was going to be. That was when I stopped and took a deep breath. I realized that I was making a big deal out of NOTHING! There are people who have worse problems than I do and I’m over here thinking it is the end of the world. I knew that I could be able to control majority of my day. Yeah I know, things happen that we have no control of but we decide how to react to everything life throws at us. Instead of myself overacting about this morning, I could of controlled my actions in more positive way. And you are probably thinking, you can’t always stay positive Edith? Well, it is up to you how you handle things. I’ll just tell you that instead of me thinking that today was going to be a bad day because of my morning madness, I would of completely had a bad day because I let my actions take a negative toll on me. But instead of moping around, I started to count my blessings. I started to think of how I have a loving family, a roof over my head, and just anything that has made my life worth living. I started to feel a sense of relief because the huge problems I had when I woke up didn’t seem so huge at all. I guess what I’m trying to say is that you have control over how you react to the problems you might have. Always keep in mind that life never throws you something you can’t handle and that it’s never too late to turn your day around. Everybody might have a different way, but I just wanted to share how counting my blessing really helped me. I know this post is really random, but I just wanted to share my thoughts for today. I hope you all had an awesome Monday and if you didn’t, tomorrow is new beginning.
