Sometimes things don’t go our way.
Our car gets stuck in traffic.
Our kid leaves his homework at the house.
Our picnic gets rained out.
We can throw a fit.
Let it ruin our next 24 hours.
Bitch and moan, bitch and moan.
Or, instead, we can choose to reset.
To take 5 deep breaths.
In. Out. In. Out.
Flush the negativity away.
Be gone, bad luck.
There are certainly some troubles that cannot be overcome by sheer force of will.
But Honest Abe was right when he said, “most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.”
For today, let’s focus on moving forward.
To get out of the muck of our current circumstances.
And turn this thing around.
