Some days are better than others, I must admit.
There are days when you get up and feel ready to face the world. But there are also days when you don't want to be bothered, even by those closest to you. Maybe you had a rough week, or a rough month, or even a rough year? I don't know. But what I do know is that I have those days too. I have those days when I feel plain frustrated.
Maybe I have been trying to do something and still haven't achieved it, or maybe someone made a promise and didn't come through, or maybe I promised someone or myself to do something and remembered that I didn't keep it. Whatever the reason, I have days just like everyone else does, that I just need some time to breath. Days when I need to think and sort myself out. There are times when life starts to weigh heavily on us and we need to regroup.
Unfortunately, we can not just disappear to an island for two or three days. That only happens in the movies and in the life of rich people. But for most of us average people that is not an option (not that it really helps anyway). But we do have other options. We can take a walk and think or pray or sit in silence or maybe even talk to someone who we can trust to give good quality advice. But we do have options. We can not expect everyday to be great. We can not expect every person to do what they are supposed to. We can not expect ourselves to always get it right. But we can deal with life as it comes. Learn from the mistakes we make, and also from the shortcomings of others. But don't stay down in that funk for long, because that is just plain unhealthy. You have to learn to shake it off and get back into stride.
There is far too much ahead to focus on the past. And it is only the past mistakes, failures, disappointments, or else fear of the future that makes us frustrated. So either one of these are not good. We can only change today, and believe that that will help us fix tomorrow. You can only solve your problems one step at a time.
So take some advice from the wise, "live each day like it's your last, because one day it will be." Shake off the frustration and LIVE. Today is what you make it.
