1228. Some days are for living. Others are for getting through. ~Malcolm S. Forbes

A good day
is a good day.

A bad day is
a good story.

At the end of the day
it’s all good.

Hmmmm?! Interesting poem up above! Okay then, here goes with the story of my bad day:

I wish I hadn’t had a crappy-assed night last night, but I did.
I wish my head didn’t hurt like hell, but it does.
I wish my feet weren’t painfully on fire, but they are.
I wish I could say it’s raining, but it’s not; it’s only occasional spitting and there’s not much of that.
I wish I could say that it’s cooler, but since the humidity is higher than the temperature, it still feels hot as hell outside.
I wish I weren’t being whiney about all this, but I am.
I wish I didn’t hate all the things that some say to try to make bad days better, but I do right now.
I wish I were clinging harder to God’s goodness and his faithfulness today, but I’m not.
I wish I were able to be more grateful right now, but I’m not.
I wish I knew why I have to deal with so much pain so often, but I don’t.
I wish I knew how at the end of the day, this will all be good, but I “effen” don’t!
I wish that something chocolate, sounded good and could make it better, but it can’t!
Now don’t we all wish Natalie would quit her wishin’ negativity!!!

Doesn’t sound like much of a story to me unless one finds merit it someone else’s pissin’and moanin’!

  2. This is authenticity at it’s best. Sometimes it’s good to vent. And it’s not all negative, I love this line: I wish I were clinging harder to God’s goodness and his faithfulness today… I love that you’re wishing for that, and I love the poster about God rather hearing about your bad day. I too pray that tomorrow is better.

  3. Sometimes we just pinch our nose and swallow. Blurt out something we’re not suppose to be saying with our mouth that speaks praise to our God…
    My next post a little simpler about swallowing as well, in a sense.
    And, you never seem to run out of beautiful flowers!

  4. Hi dearest Natalie ! It’s absolutely fine to feel that way once in a while or even more often that not. And it’s even more fine to write about it (won’t call it whining) it’s a way to let go of these emotions and pent up feelings.

    You are so loved here and I’m sure from your family and friends as well. It’s okay to have ‘0ne of those days’.

    Big bear hugs for you ❤️❤️

  5. Glad that day is over! But if and when you have more of those, remember we have all had enough of them to understand. You are one who knows where to go for hope. If you detour through your blogging friends, we will try to give you a boost.
