Feeling Upset About Your Day? Do These 2 Things And Get Over It.

Feeling Upset About Your Day? Do These 2 Things And Get Over It.

When you ask for something or you state something out loud, be prepared to receive it. So, be careful what you ask for.

A grateful heart is a beginning of greatness. It is an expression of humility. It is a foundation for the development of such virtues as prayer, faith, courage, contentment, happiness, love, and well-being.   – James E. Faust

When I was younger I really wanted to be married to a smart, strong handsome man who would love me and to have a family. So, I ask for it.

Well, 2 years into college I met that man. A few years after we graduated we got married and soon after that we had our daughter. Born at 36 weeks due to high blood pressure on my part.

I asked for her not to have any heart problems, diabetes or cancer. All the unwanted thing in our families. So, far so, good she was healthy.

I have the most beautiful daughter in the world and I’m grateful for her.                  – Bethenny Frankel

When our daughter turned 2 years old I took her to her doctors appointment to get her shots. They told me to give her Tylenol before they gave her the shots so I did. She went to sleep soon after. About 4 hours later she woke up screaming I hurt, I hurt holding her belly.

I called the doctor we just came from and they said to give her more Tylenol so, I did and she cried herself back to sleep. About 6 to 8 hours later she woke up screaming I hurt, I hurt holding her belly. This went on for 2 days. We took her back to her doctor who said she seems fine now. Keep giving her Tylenol if it happens any more.

It’s easy to get negative because you get beat down. You go through a few disappointments and it’s easy to stay in that negative frame of mind. Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is a whole cliché, but your attitude is going to determine how you’re going to live your life. – Joel Osteen

Months pass and our once very talkative daughter stop talking and developed a very high pain tolerance. Like falling in a cactus and going back to play like that was normal. Didn’t even cry!

More trips to the doctors office. He told us she needs her ears checked, because maybe that’s why she’s not talking any more.

The Ear doctor said that her ears were fine, but we should get in contact with Baby Net, because they have people who could get her talking again.

Focus on the positives and be grateful.  – Katrina Bowden

A woman from Baby Net came over to our house, she met with our daughter. Within 10 minuets she said I think this is autism. We were like what, what’s that. She said that it’s different for everyone, but you can find it in really gorgeous kids. What? Then she made an appointment for us to see yet another doctor.

When something disappointing happened, my mother would remind me not to let that become my focus. There’s still so much to be grateful for.   – Katherine Heigl

It was a few days after lent started when we went to see the developmental psychologist. I had given soda and my husband gave up beer.

The doctor tried to play with our daughter, but she had better things to do. She put his hands over his eyes as if she was playing peek a boo but, she would walk off. The doctor said that it’s just his opinion, but he thinks that she does have autism and that it’s not my fault. I said why would it be? He said it’s just that some mothers seem to think that it’s their fault.

I thought wow! I didn’t want to hear that she has autism. He then told me that I was too nice to her and told my husband that it would most likely be up to him to be the disciplinarian. Wow really? He didn’t know me or us.

The doctor recommend us to a speech and occupational therapist, then we left. I told my husband as we passed by a vending machine that I really could use a soda and he replied yeah and I could really take a beer right now.

When you are grateful – when you can see what you have – you unlock blessings to flow in your life.  – Suze Orman

Our daughter has been seeing a speech and occupational therapist since she got the label autism. We think that it’s helping.

I asked for my husband and he came to me so, I am grateful for him. I asked for us to have a daughter and she came to us. She has a healthy heart, no signs of diabetes or cancer. 7 years later she speaks every now and then, but she speaks! And for that I’m grateful.

The 2 things you should do to get over your bad day is:

#1. Be GRATEFUL for all that you have!

#2. Once you received what you have asked for, notice that you got what you asked for and say thank you then appreciate what you have.

Social Experiment: You are the average of the 5 people you’re around the most. Get 5 thank you cards and write out why you are grateful for those people being in your life. Take notice of how you feel as you write each card. Take notice of the reactions as each person reads the cards.

Hello! I'm Ericka Bates. I am a wife and mother of 2. Totally nosey with the ability to read. Therefore a great researcher. Things I like to look into autism treatments, health, meditation, and personal development. In much of my findings with autism, stress came up a lot. Stress turned out to be the cause for most health problems. Know what can defeat stress? Meditation! Meditation is not only a great way to get rid of stress, but it's also used to reduce anxiety, depression, anger, lower blood pressure and increase your creativity. There are many forms of meditation and right now I am actively practicing 4. I sit quietly and watch my breath. At first this was hard. My mind kept wondering, I was sitting in thought. Now my mind still wonders some, but I think that I'm getting the hang of it. Hey, practice makes perfect right. Walking is my favorite form of meditation. I listen to a podcast while walking and when I'm done I feel relaxed. Gratefulness or Gratitude is another good one. When I get upset, I stop and think okay, what's five things that's good about this situation. This calms me down and makes me feel better. Like the saying goes happiness is a choice and I wanna be happy. Happiness just doesn't show up you have to produces that kind of energy for yourself. Visualization is the fourth form of meditation I practice. I have a vision board with pictures of the things I want and the things I want to do. The pictures are fun to find, cut out, arrange, pin up and their nice to look at every day. Because your only choosing the things you like and want to do makes this form of meditation a joy to have in your life. It wasn't hard making meditation a part of my every day life. Now I feel that meditation is the foundation to anyone's personal development. Hopefully you'll find a form or forms of meditation that's just right for you too.
