HAYFT – Bad – Until Then, Have a Day!

One of the many definitions for the word “bad” is “of poor or inferior quality”. Experiencing a poor or inferior quality day (a.k.a. bad day) is no stranger to anyone of us and most of the time,  it may appear to be something spontaneous.

Then again, if we were to take a deeper look into it, the contribution of having one bad day is just a cumulative effect of the different events – significant or insignificant – happening in our daily lives.

Before reading the rest of this post, let us watch a video to see if the Amazing Spider-Man is good at dealing with his bad day.

When encountering such a day, it is just like the lyrics in the song “Bad Day” by Daniel Powter – “Sometimes the system goes on the blink and the whole thing turns out wrong”.

The inner frustration sometimes may stop us from knowing what the best solution is in order to end this daylight nightmare.

As I was drafting this post, I suddenly remembered what my former boss used to tell me this:

 “Now, ask yourself this, what could be worse than this? Deal with it!” 

Well, despite he was the main contributor to many of my bad days at work, I am very thankful that he had instilled me with this mentality.

Okay, enough of my grumbling and let’s continue this post with the sharing of a short and yet inspiring story (Reaching Out – Bad Day by Anonymous) that I’ve stumbled upon:

In life, there is always this ironic feeling to learn that when things seem to be very complicated, maybe all it needs is just a simple solution.

A few months ago, I was intrigued by the remark “福兮,祸兮” the characters made whenever facing with good or bad situations in this drama about the first dowager (Miyue) in China .

These four Chinese characters actually originated from Tao Te Ching “祸兮福所依,福兮祸所伏” (huò xī fú suǒ yǐ,fú xī huò suǒ fú)— whereby the character “祸” (huò) means “trouble” and “福” (fú) means “blessing”.

Literally, it means that a seemingly trouble might be a blessing in disguise and a blessing may just be a peaceful moment before the arrival or a hidden storm.

With this in mind, we must learn not to be too happy when good things are happening to us nor too sad when things tend to turn bad. Setting the irony of life aside, I guess there is always a lesson to be learnt behind every incident, no matter good or bad.

Last but not least, I would like to end this post with another sharing taken from Doctor ASKY to conclude today’s post:

So until then, have a day & TTFN~ Cheers!!

  1. I believe everybody has bad days here and there when nothing happens as we expect and goes totally wrong and straight the opposite direction we want it to.
    Well, it comes from the universe and energetic interaction around us. The advice is perfect: we sometimes need just a day. Simply a day. I sometimes sleep them away and think: when I wake up everything will be fine.
    Happy New Year!
