You wake up and realize, another day has been dumped upon you. The weekend is over and Tuesday still hasn’t got you back to routine with studies, work and their respective assignments. While dreading to do the tasks, you remember the good ol’ five days off because of Eid when you had no care in the world. Now you’re back to the point where you don’t feel like talking and despise anyone who does. You basically hate everyone and the love of your life your snuggly cuddly bed keeps popping up in your thoughts.
As much as you loathe the ongoing activities for the day, you plaster a smile on your face to assure others that you’re the most excited, over-efficient person in the whole wide world. Each second that passes on your watch brings you closer to home time where you don’t have to deal with people and/or any kind of interaction.
NOW let’s change the gear.
I’ll start this post with a different perspective and you will feel the variation in your thought process.
How slow were the holidays? Didn’t you, at some point, just want to return to your routine already? The beginning of your week gives you the chance to start afresh. With so much hustle and bustle of the city, daily contradictions with others, a new day gives you a chance to clear your head. You set fresh goals to achieve. One can untangle situations with patience. As you return to your studies/work, you get a sudden rush of adrenaline that today I will learn something new, garner experiences with limitless learning. When you meet someone new, they teach you something unique.
There are a few things that make the morning of a new day even better. You wake up early thus most of your day isn’t spent sleeping. You are proactive and feel prolific. A new day indicates that good things come to you; you just need to take charge and recognize them.
Start your day with a positive note. It can be as simple as ‘Say yes, and you’ll figure it out afterwards’.
The conclusion: How you feel depends upon and is altered by the way you think i.e. positive or negative. Your perception of how you look at a situation will determine how well you will handle it in the time of crisis. For example, your car broke down. Either you can curse your luck thinking how you’re stuck in a difficult scenario or you may enjoy the fact that I will have a bus/rickshaw ride.
Everything that happens in one’s life depends on how you look at it. If you stay optimistic, nothing will rub you off the wrong way. Each bump on the road will guide you to a better path. Keep your head up and cross the hurdles with a buoyant attitude.
