Hey there, Thursday!  So today I have one more encouraging/uplifting blog post before I get into some funner (is that a word) posts next week. So yesterday I got caught up on the latest episode of This is Us, and I was a blubbery mess.  Like ugly cry, full on balling my eyes out.  I think my sweatshirt may still be wet from my tears.  The show is so so good, you definitely should put it on your list of shows to watch.  I know you have one!

So if you absolutely don’t want to know anything about the show before you watch it then don’t read any further (total sad face).  Ok, it isn’t a huge spoiler so it’s not like I am going to ruin the show for you.  Ok, moving on. So in this latest episode we saw when Randall was dropped off at the fire station and by doing so, that changed 3 peoples lives for the better.  One bad thing created 3 amazing life changing events.  This hit me hard.  But a good hard.  Not only did it show me that with everything bad comes good follows, it showed me that the impact won’t be just on your own life but on others as well.  We have no idea how our actions affect and impact the people surrounding us.

The way your life goes totally depends on your attitude.  People can take the sourest of lemons and make something that slightly resembles lemonade every day (no I didn’t make that saying up, it’s totally from the show).  Every single day is not going to go perfectly, but how you handle each situation totally makes or breaks how each day goes which impacts how your life goes.  I was browsing through Facebook (lol!) and found this…

You had $86,400 in you account but someone stole $10 from you, would you be upset and throw all of the $86,390 away? Or would you move on with the rest of your day because you still have $86,390 left? You move on!  See, we have 86,400 seconds in each day, so don’t let someone’s negative 10 seconds or a small bad 10 second thing ruin the rest of your day. Make sour lemons into something resembling lemonade and make the most of each day, because life is wayyyy too short.

So what This is Us has taught me is that I don’t want to waste my entire day because just 10 seconds of it were bad.  I need to not sweat the small stuff because the small bad things aren’t going to change my life but how I react to it impacts the rest of my life.  I can either let it either negatively impact me or positively impact me.  It all depends on my attitude.
