Every day is a good day, but some days are better than others. Let's talk about those days that could be better because don't get it twisted, I am super grateful and thankful and blessed. I live a blessed life because I claim of blessed life. I walk into a blessed life. I walk into gratitude. I run into gratitude because I know that it isn’t always like this, it could be a lot worse but I'm looking for a life that's always better where I can continue to live my life but sometimes, those days are not as good as you like those days to be.
Today is one of those days for me. I get migraines and this is a migraine day, but you have to have a strategy and a lot of us play victim to our days that are not so good. Instead of deciding that this may not be the best day I ever had, but I'm going to decide to do what I can to make it a better version and so, I just ask, do you have a strategy for those days that are darker days where the sun isn't always shining on your face? Do you have a strategy? For me, I wake up in the morning and I drink 40 ounces of water. Today wasn’t one of those days because the way my stomach is set up on migraine days. My stomach doesn't want that water but I have a strategy of still moving forward because I've tried those days where I just want to lay in the bed all day but what I found is, it doesn't take the migraine away. It doesn't make it feel better. It doesn't make me feel better, so why just lay in the bed? I still get up, I move a lot slower, but I still get up and I still honor my day. It might take me a little longer to get that routine but do you have a routine for your day that can give you something to look forward to? Something to lean into?
Give yourself a routine to honor that doesn't have to be some crazy, psycho complicated routine. It could be as simple as get up, say your gratitude, brush your teeth, wash your face, go for a walk, your morning prayer, read your scripture, read your book. It can be as simple routine that is something that you can lean on, something you can depend on, something that gives you structure within your day. So I just say that every day may not be the best one, but every day is a good day. Continue to move forward in your day, be able to lean on the routine of your day, the structure of your day, reach out to people, especially on days like this. That part may be the hardest part, but reach out to people and just kind of get you some support. It's people that love you, it's people that care for you, it's people that love you. It’s people that care for you. There's people that love you, that people that care for you. Reach out to those people, and there's people that want to support you. You know those people are loving and caring because every day is a good day. Some days can be better. Allow this day to be a better version of the day of how it started. Trust yourself to do what's right for you, move forward in your day and sometimes you think it is what you need but sometimes it's not, it doesn't do anything. It doesn't make you feel any better just laying in your sadness or darkness, so sometimes it's better to just get up, move around, even if it's a step outside, take a deep breath and go back in.
