A better day


If today sucked, don't worry! Tomorrow can be a better day.
I work in the medical feild now, but used to be a cop in the US Army MP Corps.
Sometimes I would have to tell people, things are gonna get better, or that what they have now is just a small problem, but I always felt like I was lying.
Not everyone is gonna get to have that brighter day. Some folks next day may even be worse then the one they are in now. understanding of course that time is relative. I have had several occasions to run up to a menatl health ward and try to comfort a PT who just went apeshit and the staff always tried to pull the better day card.
This comfort usually came after restraining them to a bed of course.
I am glad that my dementia does not get in the way of my choosing what kind of day to have. Thats right we GET TO CHOOSE what kind of day we have. Just 13 days ago my truck broke down for the 3rd time in 3 straigt days, the first two I let bother me, but the 3rd was okay, because I had just went to a cigar shop and got my fill of stogies. Yeah, I still had to call a tow truck, ride to the shop, talk to the mechanic about how it had better not happen a 4th time, but I chose to make it a good day.
There is not any such thing as a better day. Its like Happiness, they are both by products of decisions we make.
Enough shit talk for tonight. It's time to spank the monkey and make sure I have a better night.
