So, friends on the 'Gram! ✨ What if I sat down here with you and told you all of the not-so-good things I was feeling, rather just responding with the usual 'i'm good, thanks'? What would you say? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yesterday, I was barely mentally keeping afloat. There were so many different things spinning around on my head that I couldn't really connect with any one thing. Work is most challenging on Mondays, I overslept, and I felt foggy, like the thoughts that I normally pull together so quickly were just not coming together. Today, I missed my workout. I am still behind on all the things I set out to do this week, and I am stressed out about money (and taxes!!! SMH). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm not saying any of this for pity or for a pick-me-up. I'm saying that it's okay. It's okay to have bad days. It's okay to be on your B game or even your C game every now and then. And it's okay to TALK about it (though there's a difference between talking and wallowing 🙃). Peaks and valleys are a fact of life. So if you asked me how I'm doing, I'd say, 'I've been better!,' and that's just fine. Tomorrow will be better, and maybe the day after, too!
One bad day doesn't EVER define you, unless you let it ✌️ at Atlanta, Georgia
