Someone recently told me if I was having a bad day, that someone better check on me because I was always so positive. People that are around me find it hard to believe that I have bad days. I try to share my smile and offer encouragement to others, even when it is not received. I love to laugh and enjoy life. I find myself laughing sometimes because even while wearing a face mask during this pandemic, I am still smiling and people can’t see my smile. To be honest, some days when others think I have it all together; those are the days I do not. Life has taught me that tough times come but I choose how I react in those situations. I am no longer the person I used to be, God has brought me through so much and I give him all the praise. There was once a time where bad days would get the best of me but now I face the bad days with courage. I dress up and show up. Those are the days, I usually come in contact with someone that shares with me their testimony and it reminds me that what I thought was so horrible, was not as bad as it seemed when compared to someone else. We all react to situations differently, as we should because we are all unique individuals. When my kindness is not received, I do not stop being kind, I say a silent prayer for that person and keep moving forward. I pray that a better day will come for that person and myself. I hope each of you have more good days than bad days. Please stay safe and may God continue to bless you and your family.
