And what made it worse was that it was in slow motion! What made that worse was that it was raining–I slipped on a leaf and fell in a puddle of water! As I gained my composure, I struggled not to get angry. I also realized my throat was a little scratchy and I had a headache. At 8:30 in the morning, my day wasn’t going so well. As I sat in my car in a semi-bad mood, I quickly took a deep breath and got my emotions in check. I realized that if this situation got the best of me, I’d truly have a bad day and I was determined not to let that happen!
Isn’t it funny how the tables can quickly turn? We go from feeling good to being angry or sad in a matter of seconds. It’s like a caged animal is on the sidelines waiting to get in the game, like in the movie Inside Out. Learning how to control our emotions is a major part of maturity and growth. If we are stable, one or two bad things won’t ruin our day.
So since we can’t control EVERYTHING in our lives, what do ya say? The next time you sleep through your alarm clock, spill your coffee or get a flat tire, will you remain positive? Drop a comment below and let me know!
