Have you ever heard the term “you are your own worst enemy”?

I didn’t think much of this term in the past. I thought it was for those who made wrong choices that ended them in prison, but lately I have realized, it is in reference to every little decision that we make.

Have you ever had a day where one million little things seem to go wrong? Okay, one million is an exaggeration, but there are days it feels like that. And have you let the way you respond to each situation change your day? What started to be a positive and happy day, turns into a frustrated and irritating day. Did this happen due to your response choices?

As hard as I try each day to be upbeat, to wear my rose-colored glasses, and to be a positive light in this crazy world, there are days that it is a struggle.
