I'm grateful for...{bad days}

I know a little weird - why on earth would i be grateful for bad days....

Well - Joining in with Maxabella Loves today, most times I opt for a Grateful that's positive, obvious and sometimes a little cliche.

But today I'm grateful for -

Bad days - Yep, we all have them, don't lie.  Whether you are a working mumma, stay-at-home mumma, mumma to newbies or grown ups or not a mumma at all, we all have them.  The other day, things didn't go right.  Kids were a handful, bickering constantly and not listening.   A quick trip to the shops had me running around like a chook with no head, only to feel like it was a constant battle, with the kids, the items on the shelf, the staff and the carpark - even the wonky trolley copped a serve from me.  I screamed, I cursed and I felt like the day would never end.  It was a total right-off day.

And that's what I did.  I accepted that that day was a Bad Day and let it be - I stopped fighting it.

Next day was heaps better - and I think I was able to enjoy it more, appreciate it more, live it, love and let it make me happy more.

So thankyou Bad Day - for coming but more importantly going - leaving me to enjoy my happy days a little more.   I know that I'll see again soon!

  1. Yes, Bren, we absolutely all have them! I can't stand them and fight them and then I think... we'll, tomorrow has got to be a bit brighter than today and I just go with it. And tomorrow always is! x

  3. It's those bad days that help us to appreciate those good ones, isn't it?! I made a conscious effort early last year to grab the very few quite moments in my life when the kids were playing beautifully together and all was quiet and going as planned and take a big breath to savour the moment. Usually only came in little 2-5 minute segments but I had to breathe them in to know that they did come on occasion and to hold that feeling in my memory for those days where I felt that every single day was full of those "tough" moments one after the other!

  5. Love this post. And you couldn't be more right, Brenda! If we only had happy days, we would find that life would be mundane and ho-hum. Aren't we strange creatures that we need to have the bad days to fully appreciate the good ones?

    Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. See you tomorrow looking all Fancy! xx

  6. Oh yes, we do all have those days. I fix my imagination on a hot cup of tea once the kids are in bed and a chance to put my feet up and put my nose in a good book. It's usually enough to get me through.

  10. OH yes, way to appreciate the fact tomorrow is always another day with happy potential is a must!! Most importantly - children don't remember, they don't hold grudges or negativity, so even if you're still annoyed, angry, disappointed, they start off fresh the next day, so i take a page out of there book. Even at high school, they forget they said anything devestating to you 5 minutes later, while you don't have to tolerate rudeness, mood swings are a part of life. You both have to get over them!!
