It's all in the perspective.

It's never the end of the world. It's already tomorrow in Australia. - Charles M. Schultz

Spilled milk again? Accidentally bleached your red shirt? Lost some money in stocks? Betrayed by a co-worker? Bad, bad day?

Whether it be minor embarrassment, utter hysteria, or anything in between, it's important to have a seat somewhere quiet, take a moment, and reboot. Remind yourself that this, too, shall pass.

Bad days are called bad days for a reason. Sometimes, that's just the way things will roll. Maybe it starts with toothpaste on your shirt, and the bad luck continues to intensify until you've had a minor fender-bender, leaving you with laundry and higher insurance premiums. However your day got to be that way, it's the stolen moments of quiet and stillness that can clear your mind of these things - let them go and wave them away; gain some perspective.

I love the quote above. It reminds me that no matter how bad things are at the moment, the day will be over soon enough (and some days, not a moment too soon). Just smile and think, it's already tomorrow in Australia. A new day is nearly here.
