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!
