5 Good Reminders When You’re Having a Bad Day

Ellie Knobel

1. Bad times make the good times better.

Without winter, we wouldn’t feel as grateful for spring. You have to learn to cherish when things are really good. Make the most out of those moments. You can’t truly be happy unless you’re unhappy sometimes, too.

2. You can learn something important from any situation. 

Every situation is a learning experience if you want it to be. Realize that every second of every day, we gain experience. We learn from everything that happens to us. Use that knowledge in the future. Grow from it. Allow yourself to evolve into the person you want to be. No matter how bad something may seem, something positive will ALWAYS come from it.

3. Some of the best days of your life are yet to come. 

I love to think about this one. Some of your happiest moments haven’t happened yet. You may not know it, but there’s always something to look forward to.

4. You can let go of so much in your life, without losing a thing. 

It’s so important to only surround yourself with positivity- and it’s up to YOU to do that.  You’ll never be able to grow if you’re being held back by negative people or behaviors. It’s time to let go if the pain of holding on is worse than the pain of letting go.

5. The right attitude is important to have right now. 

This is probably the most important of these five reminders. Your attitude determines everything. Don’t look back if you know you shouldn’t, and try not to worry about the things you can’t control. You can’t live a positive life with a negative attitude.
