Bad Days: A Worldwide Phenomenon

Today was not a very good day for me. I would actually go so far as to call it a bad day. Something very unpleasant happened at the guesthouse before I'd even eaten breakfast, there was an incident at school that had me in tears by mid-afternoon and when I went to get my laundry this evening I found two pairs of shorts missing. Earth shattering events? Hardly. Enough to get me a bit down? Yep.

Bad days happen from time to time. Everybody knows that. But traveling can have you feeling so good, like you're on top of the world, that sometimes you think you'll never feel bad again. But then you do and it's almost worse because you didn't see it coming.

From Canada to Cambodia, bad days happen. They are universal. The only good thing about a bad day? Like the flu, it normally only lasts about 24 hours. And tomorrow is bound to be a much better day.

Nice perspective ~ Loved the way you could step back and focus on the big picture.
