Stealing My Joy: Dealing With A Bad Day

I was having a pretty good day today and pushing myself through a couple of snafus along the way. I didn’t let the fact that I had to deal with four separate student discipline issues within thirty minutes steal my joy. I made my staff meeting short and to the point. I even enjoyed some downtime with my awesome deans.

I was smiling all the way home and was so proud of myself that I was going to enjoy the rest of the evening in the bed, watching tv, and NOT working or stressing.

Then shenanigans with my daughter’s mom. Misunderstandings, ego, hurt feelings. Now I’m sitting here all in my feelings because my peaceful night feels derailed.

But I am reminded of this song that has become my anthem through grief and transition. I’m going to ask for the words to get me through once again.

Live through it
Grow through it
Get through it
You can make it if you just
Pray through it
Don’t let this be the end for you.
So live through it.

    LOVE THIS SONG! Always in the car singing at the top of my lungs.

    Remember, no one can steal your joy- you give it to them.

    Heart you.

    I’ve never heard this song, but I like it. I’m glad you’re holding up. “Live through it” is right. You’re here, accounted for and blessed. Even through rocky roads, life is STILL good. Sending lots of love and light your way.
