I got a couple pieces of bad news this week. Rough week.

Bad news gets us down. It changes our mood. It affects our attitude.

Bad news can alter our plans and change the direction of our lives.

Bad news stings. It hurts us inside.

But if we can’t change it, accept it. It makes sense to put it behind us and move on.

Soak it in. Feel it. Reflect. Think about it. Learn from it.

Then get back up and get back out there because sulking does not change the situation and make it better.

This week put a damper on my mood.

Although I’m hurt and don’t feel good right now, I’m going to keep my head up and keep working.

I know my time is coming.

You can’t keep a good man down.
