Buck Up

Sometimes things don’t go as planned. When that happens, you’ve got two options: you can either buck up and make the best of your new situation, or you can buck against the change and throw a tantrum.

I think there are situations in which it’s appropriate to stick to your guns and make things right, but when small, everyday things go differently than you expected? I think it’s best for your own mental health to just take a breath, gain some perspective, and figure out a way to move forward (without a poor attitude).

I know, I know – that’s easier said than done. I’m preaching to myself here! Today didn’t go exactly as I planned, and I really huffed around for a bit. But in the grand scheme of things, it wasn’t that big of a deal. Tomorrow is a new day, with new mercies and new opportunities to be productive; new opportunities to love those around me. I’m grateful that I get to start over in the morning.

Here’s to tomorrow!

One thought on “Buck Up

  1. I think preaching to yourself is sometimes the best medicine.
    Also, think Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind, “I won’t think about that now. I’ll think about it tomorrow. Afterall, Tomorrow is another day.” or her earlier quote of, “I can’t think about that right now. If I do, I’ll go crazy. I’ll think about that tomorrow.”
