Life is full of ups and downs, we all know this and experience such on a daily basis. Sometimes we allow the downs to be the focus of our thoughts. When we do such we give the downside of life to take control of our emotions and guide our actions. By doing such we tend to get stuck in a defensive posture and in a negative mindset. We react to the situation we are experiencing instead of being proactive and constructively active in life. If one get stuck in the reactionary and defensive mindset they slip in to the oppressed and depressed emotional state that just amplifies the negative situation.
Sure we have bad days and lows in our life, its part of life and without them we could not see how fortunate we are when the good times come. Focusing only on those bad times only brings one grief and it influences your attitude which plays a big part in your total emotional happiness and well being. I personally do not believe that one can always be happy or have a life full of only good days, but I do believe one can negate most of the bad days and negative effects they bring to one emotionally and physically.
If a Bad day comes, embrace it and let it follow its course until it ends. Then let it go , move forward only remembering any lessons learned and leave the negative emotions behind. Start the next day fresh with no thought or care of what happened the day before. For each morning we wake is yet another chance at life and happiness. Forgiveness is one key to such happiness and freedom from the pain and guilt from bad days. Forgiving not only those people that has done you wrong but also forgiveness for yourself and for the mistakes you made.
Enjoy the good days you have with all your heart and enjoy the blessing of the people that you have been given to enjoy those days with. Love each person for who and what they are as well as your own self. Do not allow hate, fear or indifference be roadblocks to happiness and harmony with the world around you. Put all your thoughts and energy into the positive and happy things of life not into the negative or destructive.
There is many paths to peace and happiness, and not every path is meant for every person who walks them. Seek out that which brings you happiness and follow that path as long as it does not cause harm to yourself or others.
