Having a Bad Day? Try This.
I go to great lengths to ensure that I don't take my frustrations out on other people, so I usually bottle it until I find a safe and healthy way of releasing it. So I took out a pad of paper and wrote out of my frustrations.
On paper, I just let it all out. It was as if this paper was my psychologist and punching bag rolled into one. I didn't think about punctuation, spelling, or any type editing. I wrote out every little piece of frustration and anger that plagued my soul knowing that no one would be reading it.
After 30 minutes and two pages of venting, I felt better; A WHOLE LOT BETTER.
Then I ripped out all of my frustrations from the notepad, crumpled it up, and threw it away. It symbolized putting all the negativity behind me.
Now I have blank pad of paper, just like I have a fresh start today.
