It’s All Part Of Life (#154)

Today wasn’t the best. My team lost. My pizza was failed to be delivered (twice). I was on the receiving end of some poor communication. I had some troubling dreams. My mental health wasn’t great and overall, nothing seemed to go right for me today.

The best part about all of that, is that it’s over. Tomorrow is a new day and it most certainly can’t be worse than today. These may be little things but they add up and they make a difference.

To use a soccer metaphor, not every shot you take will go in. Not every match you play will end in your favor. It’s not about how much you lose by, it’s about how you respond.
