The Worst Day Ever

grumpy cat“The worst day ever…” – you hear it on the street, you hear it at work, you hear it at home, and sometimes you say it yourself.

Being late for work is not the worst day ever. The store is out of milk, still not considered to be the worst day ever. Ok, ok….you miss your plane. Still not the worst day ever. A very bad day but not the worst.

Maybe losing your car keys are the worst thing that has happened to you so far, but it is definitely not the worst day ever.

I think we all need to stop and think about words that we choose to describe a setback or an inconvenience. We are so immersed in a world of nonsense and small inconveniences that we forget things that actually matter.

There is only one thing that makes it the worst the day – the death of somebody you loved with all you heart.  You either knew it was coming or  it just happened suddenly. The worst nightmare ever is to receive the call you don’t wish onto anybody.

There are a lot of things (being raped, being assaulted) that are horrible but losing the love of your life – be it your child, your husband, your wife, your parents, your sibling or your pet, is something you can’t ever recover from.

So, please do not say that you had the worst day ever just because you broke your nail or your favorite soccer / football team lost a game.

    In one short phrase, you sum it up perfectly: “…we forget things that actually matter.” We get so bogged down into whatever is going on in our worlds that we forget it is the things we can’t buy, the things that aren’t big at all, the things we take for granted, that are the things that matter the most. I pray we can begin to remember what those little things are for us – the friendships we have, the pets who share our lives and dreams, the trees, rivers, oceans, lakes, birds, flowers, etc. that decorate our days, the people nearest us. Those are the things that matter.

    I’ve wondered where you’ve been; it’s been awhile since you posted a blog and I hope you’re just out adventuring your life. Be well, my friend. You are loved and you are important to me. ♡
