Yesterday I had a bad day. It was just one of “those” days. When I sat down at my office desk to work on my new mini-training, Conquer the 3 P’s, I began having “techie” trouble with my laptop.
So being the mature, Christian woman that I am (haha!), I had a meltdown. I confess that at one point, I literally SCREAMED because I was so frustrated! Ray and I were broke. (We’re between paydays right now!). And there’s other “life stuff” going on that is stressing me out right now.
I finally got the tech trouble resolved. Then last night I spontaneously went to get an ice cream cone from Sonic. It just sounded good!
I drove to park in a closed store’s empty parking lot, staring up at the bright, beautiful moon, and listened to praise music on K-Love radio station as I slowly ate my ice cream cone. The praise music uplifted my spirit. I could breathe again, and exhaled….finally feeling peace after the turbulent day.
It didn’t solve the world’s problems, or even mine really. But it helped my stress (at least temporarily!).

Yes, I know sugar isn’t the answer and if too often indulged in, it can do much more harm than good, so please don’t lecture me on this, lol. I do believe that it was just getting away a moment and the praise music which refilled me. But ice cream once in a while doesn’t hurt!
What do you do when you’re having a bad day?
