Have you ever just had one of those days?
The ones where the moment your feet hit the floor things begin to go wrong? Maybe you wake up realizing you left the kitchen a wreck and now you get to start your morning off with dirty dishes and yesterday’s dinner. Maybe you roll over and hit the snooze button only to realize you’re now going to be inevitably late. Maybe you’ve woken up to a text message you weren’t expecting.
Whatever the case, you foresee a bad day coming on and it makes you want to run back to bed and pull the covers over your head. I know girl. I’ve been there and honestly? Bad days are inevitable from time to time. Some days it’s going to rain and you’re going to forget the umbrella. Some days you’re going to pull your loaded down grocery cart up to the check out aisle only to realize you’ve left your card at home and now have to walk out empty handed. Trust me! I’ve been there.
And do you know what I’ve learned in the midst of those bad days?
I have a way of walking more discouraged, more defeated, more hopeless on those bad days than I do the good ones. For some reason, I so often allow the circumstances of the day define who I am. I am not my mistakes. I am not the reason for the bad. I am not a failure just because I left the laundry undone or the house a wreck.
Let me say it a little differently.
YOU are not defined by your circumstances around you. YOU are not defined by your bad day. YOU are so much more than you think, my sweet friend, and it’s in the midst of those not so great days that you must pick yourself up, dust the dirt off from where you’ve fallen down and keep moving forward.
Choose to get back on track. So what you messed up today. It’s only noon! You have the whole rest of your day to make better choices! Choose to remind yourself of who you are…You are the only you on this earth and you were created to do amazing things.You are not defined by what happens around you – You are defined by who you know you are on the inside.You are more than enough and can walk with a confidence and a boldness that’s absolutely contagious! You are unique, special, capable, strong, independent and able to accomplish every single one of the dreams that have been put in your heart.You are going places and every single step you take, no matter how small, is a step in the direction of seeing huge goals met in your life.Girl, don’t let a few bad days rob you of who you know you are! You are so much more than you think.
You are a woman destined to change the world , one step at a time, and no measley ole’ bad day is going to keep you from walking with your head held high. You walk confident. You walk knowing who you are.
You walk knowing that you are so much more than that bad day.
You are fabulous.
It's not just a dream...it's a process!
