We’ve all had bad days! Right? We all have had mornings when we’re in a rush to get out the door and at least 10 things go wrong as if to sabotage the one day we planned to get to work early, as opposed to barely making it to the time clock before the 7 minute grace period expires!
Yep, I’ve been there! Just this past Sunday I planned on taking my daughter to the park super early to avoid the hot sun and the crowd. We love having the park all to ourselves which gives me a chance to be a big goofball as she challenges me to keep up with her: climbing, swinging, ziplining, and what ever else she dares me to do.
But on Sunday, just as we were getting dressed, doggy peed on her bed before we had a change to take her for a walk. This single event created an avalanche of work to do before we could even leave the house: replacing the dog bed linen, washing the dog, mopping the floor, scrubbing the tub and me taking a shower. Ugh!!! My daughter had a mini-meltdown and admittedly, so did I. Our plans were ruined! By the time we got to the park an hour later, it was hot and crowded so we didn’t stay that long. Bummer…
Later on that day, my munchkin and I watched funny cartoons, looked at cute dog videos on Instagram then went for a long walk together and of course, our doggy got to tag along. Despite the rough start to the day, we found a way to enjoy our time together and in the end that’s what really mattered.
Conclusion, in the midst of all the frustration, we can either have a meltdown or choose to go with the flow and rationalize that someone else out there in the universe is having a worse day than we are, making our situation that bad after all!
So, to help brighter your rough day, here’s a little pick-me-up to get you through this temporary rough spot. And just remember, Rachel Understands! Enjoy!
