When I go to sleep at night after having a bad day, I can tell myself this is awful and I can’t stand it, or I can say to myself I’m glad today is over, and I’m hopeful for a better day tomorrow. Depending on how I look at things tells me in which direction I am heading. If I live in the awful place, I have a tendency to wake up the next day full of gloom. On the other hand, I can be understanding that everyone has bad day, and get a good night’s sleep knowing that tomorrow can be a better day. Today, I will accept the bad days and know they won’t last, I will not allow a bad day, bad situation or even a bad week to knock me off of the path of sobriety. I will allow myself to put bad days behind me, and be open for the possibilities of better days ahead.
