The rollercoaster continues

It’s crazy how much we’re affected by factors outside of us. We try to limit how much our emotions are modified by anything but ourselves, but often find it impossible. Have a rough night sleep? The next day may be harder. Have a challenging conversation with someone? It’s likely to change our outlook for hours. 

The thing I’ve often come back to is an understanding, at least implicitly, that after a rough day the next day is unlikely to be as hard. It will often be better. 

So take these things in stride. Some days are harder, other days are better; and in the midst of all that try to remember (and it’s ok if you occassionally fail) to hug your loved ones, and enjoy the beauty around you.
