Inspiration from a London bar

Reading this is a guaranteed turn around to a rough day.  At least it works for me!  I’ve had weird energy lately - not sure if it’s gray skies, heavy humid air, hormones or what, but reading this helps get me out of the funk and I hope it helps you too.  

This powerful poem was reportedly first seen in a London bar. You may have seen it on Facebook, but even if you have, I encourage you to read it again. And if you’ve had a string of tough days, print it out, tape it to a mirror, keep it with you, read it often.

Today was the absolute worst day ever
And don't try to convince me that
There's something good in every day
Because, when you take a closer look,
This world is a pretty evil place.
Even if
Some goodness does shine through once in a while
Satisfaction and happiness don't last.
And it's not true that
It's all in the mind and heart
True happiness can be obtained
Only if one's surroundings are good
It's not true that good exists
I'm sure that you can agree that
The reality
My attitude
It's all beyond my control
And you'll never in a million years hear me say that
Today was a good day

Now read from bottom to top.

What a great way to reframe your day, and it all came from simply twisting negative thoughts into positive ones.  We’re all capable of that.  Even those times when all seems to be crashing down around you, if you take a deep breath, let go and focus on one positive thing in your life, you can change the direction of the day. 

No, I’m not saying the bad stuff will disappear, but your response to it will, and that’s a game-changer.

Wishing you a Great Day!
