What do you do when the bottom falls out?
You build another floor.
So many times, even I am guilty of it, when things get hard it is pity party time. “Oh woe is me that life has hit a rough patch.” The car has a flat tire. I am broke until payday. I just had an argument with my other half. Whatever. There is always bad days. There will always be bad days. It is how we get though those bad days that count.
For one, life can always get worse. Yes I know that no one wants to hear this but it is the truth. Do not ever think it can’t get worse because it can and it will if you let it. Not all, but a lot of the time luck and perspective can be changed with your outlook on life. If you are down then you will look at the bad and more bad will happen. It is a vicious cycle that needs to be broken. Break it now!
Build a new floor so you will stop going down. Once you stop your downward spiral only then will you see progress. It is as easy as changing your thoughts. Instead of looking at the negative, look at the positive. If can’t seem to find any positive, make some. Your car has a flat tire. Be thankful you have a car. You are broke until payday. Be joyous that you have a job. You just had an argument with your better half. Either fix your relationship or get out of it. It can be as simple as simple or complex as you make it. I have walked away from unhealthy relationships both easily and the hard way.
If you see yourself only looking at the bad start a gratitude journal. Write down 5 things every time you feel there is no good in your life. They can be as trivial as you are thankful that your favorite show is on tonight to as humbling as I am thankful that I have a great child. You choose what you are grateful for. Acknowledge what you are grateful for and it will open yourself too much more happy in life. Some days I am grateful I had not done a face plant while walking.
Just remember it can be done. You just have to do it. There will always be bad days. There will always be good days. You got this!
