And how will I master my emotions so that every day is a happy day, and a productive one? I will learn this secret of the ages: Weak is he who permits his thoughts to control his actions; strong is he who forces his actions to control his thoughts. Each day, when I awaken, I will follow this plan of battle before I am captured by the forces of sadness, self-pity and failure.
If I feel depressed I will sing.
If I feel sad I will laugh.
If I feel ill I will double my labor.
If I feel fear I will plunge ahead.
If I feel inferior I will wear new garments.
If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice.
If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come.
If I feel incompetent I will remember past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be master of my emotions.
1. Big plans fall through. Oooh…there's nothing worse than having a trip, concert, party etc. on your calendar only to have it fall through at the last minute. Talk about excitement crushing.
How to deal: Instead of wallowing in disappointment, make a list of other fun things you can do instead and start doing them! You'll forget about those failed plans in no time!
2. That perfect bag, outfit, accessory etc you ordered online actually sucks and doesn't look good IRL. Seriously, how many times have you lusted after something you see online, saved up money, ordered it, received it and find out that it absolutely sucks/looks bad.
How to deal: Best way to deal is to simply return it, dig through your closet for something you may have forgotten about and/or hit the mall for something you can try without paying a shipping fee.
