A Hard Day

When you’re having what you feel like is a “bad day” and then someone comes along out of nowhere and extends to you the simplest of kind gestures, you feel it so deeply within your heart.”
Miya Yamanouchi

.
When you feel unhappy, sad or having a bad day trying some of these:

.

Do something good for someone else, even though you may not want to. Do a favour, help them find something; give them an item which will help them in some way. Start the flow of positive energy.

.

Eat the best chocolate you can get your hands on. In bed. Or in the bath.

.

Turn up music you really love. Play it so loudly that it soaks in through your skin. Feel the pain lift.

.

Write a list of things that you appreciate right now, in the present moment. Focus on each of them. Even when things appear to be going really, really badly, there are always things to be happy about.

.

Order delivery food, just to bask in the glory of the fact that if you pay people, they will come to your door. With food. Warm, good food.

.

Look through old photos. With a friend if possible. If it is an old friend, you can reminisce (“Oh my god, do you remember when we did that?!”), & if it’s a new friend, you can tell big stories (“Well, let me tell you about this…”).

.

Walk around a garden shop and buy a beautiful plant.

.

Hug a friend.

.

Believe that things will change…nothing stays the same.…..There is hope for tomorrow.

.
“Maybe it’s not about having a beautiful day, but about finding beautiful moments. Maybe a whole day is just too much to ask. I could choose to believe that in every day, in all things, no matter how dark and ugly, there are shards of beauty if I look for them.”
Anna White
