I recently read a post on another blog that said there is no such thing as a bad day. The argument consisted of looking at things negatively and assuming that they were bad, therefore making it “a bad day”. The blogger also insisted that the idea of a bad day was all in the mindset of the person.
To an extent, I believe this as well. Realistically, though, if I were to lose/misplace a hundred dollars, get my car stolen, and drop/break my laptop, I would consider it a bad day. Of course, this has never happened to me, but I think that a chain of events could lead to the same conclusion of considering a day, well, to be bad!
I guess the moral of the blogger’s post was to say that all things should be seen with the glass half full, not empty. I think about the definition of “a bad day” a lot. When I see my friends post that they are having a bad day, I wonder if their day is truly going as badly as they believe.
I have had days that were not fun in the slightest and gut-wrenching sad, but I believe that each day has taught me something new, or reminded me of something I have forgotten.
So, is there such thing as a “Bad Day”? I’m still debating it…
