Day 62

This lesson is from Wednesday.

I have learnt this some time ago. I have learned that is important and sometimes it is better to take things one day at a time. I often have found that whenever I get excited for something, it often doesn’t go the way I picture it in my mind. Having expectations often leads to disappointments. I like to take things one thing at a time. I try my best to not have any expectations, because then I wouldn’t be faced with any disappointments.

At first it was hard to take things as they were coming my way. Because I have outgrown those habits, I have recognized that I am able to take things one day at a time. It has helped me get by the things I didn’t think I could have gotten through. But here I am, still standing.

Today, I will let go of the need of having expectations, because they often turn into disappointments. How many times have you unintentionally hurt yourself by getting your hopes so? Instead of having any expectations of how things MAY turn out, why don’t we just take life one thing at a time, and learn to go with the flow.

Don’t Allow Disappointment to Get the Best of You

Earlier I was at my boyfriend’s house and we were making our chicken noodle soup I let the noodles simmer too long in the pot with the water. I haven’t made soup before so I wasn’t able to time everything perfectly.

I feared that if I drained the water from the pot then the noodles would dry out. I asked my boyfriend to drain the noodles and he thought that it would have been soggy. I also burned the bottom of two of the frying pans.

I wasn’t in a happy mood as I would like to have been.

But the end result was amazing!!

Today I will not allow disappointments to bring me down instead I will see them as a set back and a way for me to improve. Thus there is no need to fret and get upset over it.

Disappointments Happen.

It’s okay if your day doesn’t go as plan. Something better is around the bend.

Some of my plans got cancelled today. It didn’t upset me although I was excited to hang out with these people but there’s always another day.

Instead of sulking I used that time to declutter and reorganize my kitchen cupboards and drawers. I told my ma to call these drawers “A Resource Drawer” rather than the junk drawer. If she continues calling it a junk she will then just add “junk” and useless stuff.

If we didn’t have any bad days then how would be able to appreciate the good ones?
