Even the most eternal optimist has days where they just can’t snap out of it! For all my positive perspectives, sunny side up sayings and memorable musings, I still have my bad days!
The most important thing, when you’re really not feeling it, is to put one foot in front of the other and give yourself a break!
Everyone has days or moments when they feel sad, lonely, overwhelmed, inadequate, depressed etc.. but the trick is not to let it consume you.
Unfortunately, life doesn’t stop when things aren’t going our way (wouldn’t that be awesome!?!), so even if we’re not feeling it, we’ve got to carry on. So it isn’t your best day..take pride in knowing you put one foot in front of the other and plowed through.
Some people say “fake it ’til you make it” and that’s all well and good but I find the best way to pick yourself out of a rut is to acknowledge it! Sometimes pretending like everything is okay when its not is a sure fire way to compound your negative feelings, so forgo fake!
Know you’re never alone, its okay to feel low and just take it one step at a time!
