“One of those days” seems to occur more and more frequently when un(der)employed and career hunting. More often than I’d like to admit, the inner 6-year-old in me wants to stand up on a table and scream, “Life is not fair! When will it be MY turn?! This is NOT what was supposed to happen!!” And nothing’s quite so bad as when you want to be irrational and angry because traffic is terrible commuting to your dead end job/the application you’re filling out has a typo on it (a TYPO?! And I have to prove myself to THEM??!) the fries from the fast food that you really shouldn’t have bought anyway are soggy, but you know it’s silly to incite the negative energy.
This song showed up on a Pandora station one day and soothed both 6-year-old and 30-something me’s simultaneously. Sometimes, it’s just one of those days. And it’s all going just so perfectly… wrong. But — it’s just one day. One day at a time. Take a deep breath, pop a spoonful of Nutella, and wait for the next one.
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
