Yesterday was rough. No singular reason, but just a tough, glitch-filled day at work, a lack of energy and that overwhelmed feeling that no matter what I did, I’d never catch up. Scheduling conflicts prevailed and I fell off my “perfect” streak on my Clean Eating diet in a moment of weakness. So nothing catastrophic, but the day where nothing went as I’d planned and I felt out of control. Bottom line, it was one of those days where I felt like I was drowning.
Today, though, today is a brand new day. Where yesterday I felt like I took two steps backwards for every one forward, today feels like a breeze. I received some paperwork I’ve been waiting on to move forward on a project at work (with no nagging involved) and the afternoon is stretched out before me as time with my kids on Spring Break. Not that today hasn’t had its hiccups, it has, but this feeling like Ms. Black Cloud Karma is hovering over me isn’t there today. I haven’t been second guessing every move wondering what could go wrong next. The cosmos have shifted, and I though I can’t explain why, I am grateful.
It makes me very understanding of early civilizations who believed in the wrath of gods and nature. When everything piles on all at the same time, there has to be some force behind it orchestrating it that way, right? Do negative thoughts really breed more negativity? Does a positive outlook bring about positive events. Perhaps.
Isn’t it funny what a difference a day makes?
