Write a letter to someone you haven’t met that is having a bad day.

I’m not sure who needs to hear this, but….

Singers tell you it will get better:

"I know, this night, won't last forever. I know, the sun's, gonna shine sometime. I need, some hope, for a bright tomorrow To show, this heart, is gonna mend just fine." Michael Johnson 1979

and Gerry and the Pacemakers agreed "For the morning will bring joy For every girl and boy So don't let the sun catch you cryin'" David said in Psalms 40 I waited patiently for the LORD; He inclined to me and heard my cry.

There are hundreds of cliches about being hopeful, glass half full, looking forward, things will get better….and they will, but it’s not what you want to hear right now so I won’t remind you.

I have made mistakes, both foolish and costly. I have had my heart broken, more than once. I have had more bad days and tragic events in my life than I care to count, everything from plain ol’ bad days when I was late for work or snagged my panty hose to house fires to auto accidents to lost jobs to hurricanes to murders to deaths of my family members, close friends and pets. More than one has knocked me to my knees.

My track record for getting back up is pretty good.

My best advice? Don’t gloss over it! You get to have your feelings. Take a day to be mad or sad. Feel all the emotions. Stick your toes in the pity pool – heck, jump in head first.

Just don’t stay there.

It will pass. It might pass like a kidney stone, but it will pass.

There’s always tomorrow.

It’s a bad day, not a bad life.
