You ever have one of those days? Of course you have. We all have. And I had one today.
Oh, it's not so bad, really, as bad stuff goes. Just a pile of things adding up to a big bad case of the bummers. Times like this, it's good to recall how much better off I really am than so many others, which is why it's heartening to read the previous post and embrace gratitude.
And to remember, all the things in life that aren't so great are fodder for writers. If life were all cheesecake and unicorns, what fun would that be? (Okay, it would be really fun, but a heart attack on a stick just waiting to happen.)
So take another read of Pamela's post, and follow her advice. I'll be picking up my pen myself and jotting down some thanks. Because even when things aren't pinky-perfect, they are still pretty good, and so far they've always gotten better again, and it's days like today that help us savor the days that aren't.
