Bad Day

1. From the moment you wake, focus on yourself.

2. Repeat this mantra: “No one else could possibly appreciate what I’m going through.”

3. Complain often.

4. Dwell on every slight given you.

5. Relive old hurts again and again and again.

6. Refuse to forgive.

7. Guard against recognizing the unique beauty of each soul.

8. See only the faults and weaknesses of the people you love.

9. Keep “I told you so” ready on your lips.

10. Criticize often.

11. Set God’s Word far away from your eyes.

12. Cast aside God’s promises.

13. Hold your worries close to your heart.

14. Remain troubled for the length of a sleepless night.

15. And through it all, remember not to pray.

Worry 2

I’m so glad you stopped by, friends, because that always makes my day great! I appreciate your visits and words of encouragement. Blessings!

  1. Ouch. I’m sure I’ve done a few of those almost every day, but hopefully not all in one day. 🙂 It would indeed make for a horrible day. Thanks for sharing in this format–sometimes it takes us seeing the wrong way to remember to take the right way.

  2. This is such a wonderful perspective – glad you shared it! I’ve never really thought about it like this before, but now that I have, it opens my eyes to all that can easily take down a day. Such a great post! Blessings to you! Have a great week!
