Waking up on the wrong side of the bed is something I’ve heard people talk about my whole life. I never really understood the meaning when I was younger. I wake up some days feeling like the world is easy. My breathing seems clearer, eyes brighter, and even my ideas just flow. On other days I wake up not feeling like getting up. I drag myself to the restroom, get dressed slowly, and just can’t seem to get my thoughts together. Those are the days I feel like I woke up on the wrong side of the bed.
There are days when you’re just not feeling it…In here you have no choice in if you’re going to work or not. The are no sick days. You’re expected to be there, or face disciplinary actions. I found a balance between my good and bad days. I stopped looking at going to work as a punishment or something I just don’t want to do. I found ways to turn work into a hobby. It wasn’t easy in the beginning. Once I started waking up telling myself, “Lets get it !”, work didn’t seem so bad anymore. Changing my attitude towards work played a huge roll in the way I felt each day. Now my physically and mental mindset work together to turn my bad days around. I wake up, take a hot shower, get my thoughts together, and figure out how I can make each day work in my favor.
Some days are still a little tougher than others because you have to work with people that aren’t feeling the same as you are. Misery loves company so you have to move around from those negative people as much as possible. In here I have to deal with so…many different negative attitudes. It’s like I’m playing a game of “sucker duckin'” everyday. I always manage to figure out how to find my peace despite all the chaos. Most of the time I find peace in music. Whatever it takes to turn your bad days into good days, you have to do it in order to make life better for you. One thing I learned about life is, talking about doing something won’t get you anywhere. If you wish to change how things are going for you, act on it. No one is making you wake up on the wrong side of the bed. Mentally, it’s all on you. What will be your choice?
