Sometimes we all have "one of those days". You know, where everything is in a jumble and nothing is going right and all you want is to cry, yell, or go back to bed. (Or, perhaps, all three. At the same time.)
Yeah, I have those too. Like yesterday for example. (Our rhythm was fine, the day was just off for other reasons.)
I suspect we all have them from time to time. Sometimes the angst and drama around us is real and tangible, and sometimes we are suffering from our thoughts alone – the magical power of worry and "what if". (The latter is more frequent around here.) But still, it feels pretty lousy doesn't it?
And then I thought, hm. There are oodles of you visiting here everyday. And we all feel like that from time to time. So let's do an experiment. Together. (Yes, even you quiet ones. I know you're out there.)
Are you ready? Here goes.
Say something nice.
That's it. Pretty simple, right? But it'll be magical. I'd love you to leave it here in the comments on this post. Or you can say it to your partner when they come home tonight. Say it to the man who speaks kindly to your child. Or that mama struggling with a cranky toddler at the grocery. Type it, write it down, or say it outloud to yourself. Say it for you, for me, for your father, or for the world.
Becuase we all need to remember what is good in the world (or in our partner, or in ourselves, or in eachother) from time to time.
So bring it on.
Say something nice. I think it would do us all some good.
