Today was a bad day. I didn’t really try to hard to make it better either, It was almost like I wanted to feel bad. Even though I don’t think I did. I didn’t do recovery spots on it until now but I was told it’s never too late to spot on a situation. So here goes everything:
Peace over power. Friendship over force.
Humor is our best friend, temper is our worst enemy.
Return of the symptom is not the return of the illness.
There is no spontaneity without relaxation and no relaxation without spontaneity.
Have your symptoms but don’t make an issue of them.
… motionless sitting, gives instant relief which at first is brief, but then lengthens and lengthens and produces a real sustained relief.
Some symptoms are distressingbut not dangerous.
Be the patient patient.
It’s only thoughts and beliefs, that create nervous symptoms
At times we can lower our standards to good, plain and poor average.
Comparisons are odious. Either it makes us feel better than others (exceptionality)
or worse than others (fearful temper).
Spot the extremism
Face, tolerate and endure.
Highlight your gains and blindspot your failures.
Temper is an intellectual blindness to the other side of the story.
I also found a website that lists the ways to change a bad day into a good day It’s here: http://www.whitehouseblackshutters.com/have-a-bad-day/
here is the list:
1. Take a shower
2. Jump up and down a few times
3. Get dressed, put on some makeup
4. Turn happy music on, loud.
5. Call your husband, mom, or a friend just because.
6. Make your bed.

9. Take your vitamins.
10. Go outside. Take a walk around your yard. Kick a ball around.
