"Don't let a bad day make you feel like you have a bad life."

I read that quote today and it was exactly what I needed.

I had a terrible, rotten, no good, very bad day today. . . and for no reason in particular! I've been cynical and grumpy and bashing on myself and my life. I slept more than I should have, cried more than I needed to, and sat around doing absolutely nothing. I found zero motivation to make stuff for the shop, work-out, get out of my pajamas, work on Christmas projects, or read my scriptures (all things on my to-do list).  It's 7:30pm and all I did today was edit a research paper for JD, huffing and puffing the whole time about how I wish he didn't procrastinate and bashing on his writing skills. I was terrible and I've already apologized excessively.

My life is usually pretty bright and happy. I don't get upset a lot. I can usually keep my head screwed on straight and maintain a decent perspective. . . like when JD gets worried and complains that we're poor, I usually rattle off some cheesy line like, "We may be money-poor, but we're rich in love, baby!" Obnoxious, right? But, helpful.

Then, there are days like today where I feel like everything is falling apart and my life is in shambles and I cry until it's all out of my system. I hate these days. But they come sometimes and I just have to remember it's okay.

I'm okay. My life is okay. Everything is a-okay.
My bad days don't mean I have a bad life. Hoorah!
