Turning A Bad Day Into A Good Day

Turning A Bad Day Into A Good Day

We can probably add many other favourite activities which help lift us out of the doldrums. For me, it would be a walk in nature. The point is to think about what brings us joy and let that transform the day and our attitude for the day.

There are times when our day goes from good to bad.  Possibly from an interaction with another person or a disappointment in an expectation.

Whatever caused the dark cloud to appear, it is important to realize that there are things you can do to make it disappear.  The last thing that you should allow is for your day to be ruined by someone or some event.

If you have never been to the Tiny Buddha website, I suggest you take a look.  It is full of uplifting articles and information.  I always find something that lifts my spirit when I read their posts.

About ivonprefontaine

In keeping with bell hooks and Noam Chomsky, I consider myself a public and dissident intellectual. Part of my work is to move beyond (transcend) institutional dogmas that bind me to defend freedom, raising my voice to be heard on behalf of those who seek equity and justice in all their forms. I completed my PhD in Philosophy of Leadership Studies at Gonzaga University, Spokane, WA. My dissertation and research was how teachers experience becoming teachers and their role as leaders. I focus on leading, communicating, and innovating in organizations. This includes mindfuful servant-leadership, World Cafe events, Appreciative Inquiry, and expressing one's self through creativity. I offer retreats, workshops, and presentations that can be tailored to your organzations specific needs. I published peer reviewed articles about schools as learning organizations, currere as an ethical pursuit, and hope as an essential element of adult eductaion. I published three poems and am currently preparing my poetry to publish as an anthology of poetry. I present on mindful leadership, servant leadership, schools as learning organizations, how teachers experience becoming teachers, assessement, and critical thinking. I facilitate mindfulness, hospitality retreats. and World Cafe Events using Appreciative Inquiry. I am writing and researching about various forms of leadership, how teachers inform and form their identity as a particular teacher, schools as learning organizations, hope and its anticipatory relationship with the future, and hope as an essential element in learning.

  1. Basic neuroscience, Rick Hanson,

    What fires together wires together,

    Where we place our attention grows, where we withhold attention fades.
    .
    On the other hand a Buddhist, with a trained mind would tell you the investment in the judgment whether it is a good day or bad day is the wrong road.

    Our day just is, it does not have to be anointed good, bad or indifferent.

    Eliminate the judgment and maybe the darkness never arrives

    Just a thought.
