To anyone who’s day is not off to a good start (like mine):
Let’s power through this.
What can we control? Let’s change all of the things we can and take back this day.
For the things we can’t control, let’s do our best not to let them control us.
If you’re feeling angry, if you’re sad, if there’s something that happened over the weekend that deeply impacted you and you just can’t get it off your mind – acknowledge that. Maybe you need a moment – step away from your desk, take a drink of water, do some deep breathing – but take that moment.
Maybe you’ll need various moments throughout this day but you will get through it.
This day is yours. You have choices. Maybe many choices and maybe few – but make the ones you can. Take back this day.
