The How-to of Reality

#HAWMC Day 26: Make it a great day

checklistLife is full of ups and downs. Sometimes, the type of day we have is out of our control, but other times, we can influence how our day is going. Come up with 5 tips for changing your frame of mind when you’re having a bad day!

Overcoming a bad day?

Down in the dumps?

Someone peed in your Cornflakes?

Haters hatin’?

Well, I’ve got just the thing for YOU to turn that frownie upside downie!

1. Choice.

2. Choice.

3. Choice.

4. Choice.

5. Choose to find those small things that would have otherwise gone unnoticed, heard and/or learned.

It’s all about finding your own #gladitude, people.

Never heard of it? I started The #gladitude project in the hopes of reclaiming my Inner Asshole, Director of Moods. I’m sure it’s faltered off the scope of the minds of the general public by now, but I sure as shit adhere to it.

Do I invalidate my less-than-stellar days? Not at all. Nor do I invalidate anyone else’s. But, I also have a responsibility to myself to get the hell off of the proverbial piss pot when it’s time.

And?

And, I do that by choosing to. By finding something to grant me, however temporary, some escapism, comfort or “Happy.”

It takes effort. Not gonna lie. I’d much rather sit in my weary wallows stuffing M&M’s down my gullet…but that gets me where? Effort is what gets us acknowledgements that we seek. Effort is what sees results when we need esteem. Effort keeps people informed. Effort keeps me out of the News at 11.

*shifty eyes*

Manifest your reality.

Your reality has a common denominator…

…the common denominator is “You.”

Believe.

Do. 

Repeat.
