It’s Okay to Have a Bad Day // Tea with Robin Podcast Episode 40

It's Okay to Have a Bad Day

There’s nothing wrong with you if you have a bad day. If you feel sad or off sometimes, it’s okay.

What the big deal is what we choose to do about it.

We are so much more than the stories we tell. We are joy. We are light. We are infinite possibility. And we always have the freedom to go down the tubes with the klinky thinking. Or not.

In this episode of Tea with Robin, we’re talking about the ups and downs of everyday life and how to take good care of us.

It's Okay to Have a Bad Day

My notes from today’s episode:

Life is good, I am so happy I am in this life, so happy it is us 🙂 Hope you’re practicing right along with me.

Yes! Feeling so happy to be on the other side, it’s been a little klinkery over here and there have been some upsets happening.

We pause for a special Robin blessing for the Love Posse (tune in to listen at 7:00)

It’s ok to have a bad day. It’s okay to share about it too.
There’s nothing wrong with you if you have a bad day — if you feel sad or off sometimes, it doesn’t mean you’re doing something wrong.

The bad day isn’t really the big deal believe it or not. What the big deal is what we choose to do about it.

Sometimes our thinking goes in a bad direction. And then we have some challenging self-talk we do.

In my family, a bad day was not an acceptable thing… if you were down and sad or an angsty teenager, you were sent to your room.

I’d be teased for being sad, I’d be teased for trying to talk about stuff, I’d be made fun of.

And so today it’s easy to understand why we’d reject our feelings for being off. If happy, smiley children were preferred, then bad days are no-nos.

So it’s completely normal to have this inner reaction to your own upset saying don’t do it… don’t be upset, just keep going, ignore it, pretend it’s not happening, don’t tell anybody, don’t let it show on your face, keep a smile going, don’t say anything

The last episode, I was talking about how we keep drawing people in who will help us work on this kind of stuff… and so for a while, I’d have a friend who’d make fun of me and would be harsh with me and over time I worked that out, I learned my value and developed relationships that do not repeat the patterns anymore.

We are treasures and amazing and we can learn to roll with bad days.

Back to the kind of day… it’s so good to say, I don’t really love it but I know they happen and I know they’re okay too. I know they’re a part of the flow of contrast. 

This is an opportunity to choose again. To choose from love instead of spanking myself or sending myself to my room, I could choose again and you could choose again.

Check in with yourself,
How are you
What do you need
How can I help you?

Do not believe in stories that are not true.

Notice the tendency to get down on yourself, doesn’t matter how long you’re on the journey its the first roots that usually are the ones which come to you…

So it’s not the important part that you’re having an upset day – there are ups and downs. We’re gonna have feelings about life happening. Better to count on it and trust that the contrast in life is gonna keep happening.

It's Okay to Have a Bad Day

We can choose to go along on the ride and be kind and gentle

I’m not looking for sympathy or advice, I am telling you this because all of us wander in this space from time to time… and this is not the real us.

This is not really who I am
Let me help myself
Let me adjust, accommodate what’s here now

For me, once I am in that space I become very still, I don’t really phone a friend or chat or text going on and on about the Klinker story because you build momentum in the wrong direction.

You’re adding power and force and drawing energy to you that’s a match to what you don’t want to be feeling as it is.

So I get very still… I call it to stop drop and roll.

So when you’re upset you stop what you’re doing, drop into your heart, and roll with what’s there… the feelings and what you’re needing and then you can find out what you can do for yourself instead of ignoring it like it’s an inconvenience or pushing it away because you were pushed away.

We’re all learning how to unfold into this love and the truth of who we really are and it takes time,

We are always okay, beautiful and perfect, and never a mistake we could have made and sure there are times when we act outta fear instead of love.

Sometimes people say to me, Why do I feel this way, it’s ridiculous I just don’t understand it, it’s ridiculous already!

They’re talking like it is the inconvenience that they were made to feel at some point in their lives by another.

Well it’s not, we have to learn how to slow down and be with our feelings and be with our light.

It's Okay to Have a Bad Day

So when I did that the only guidance I got was to go outside and stand there… I went to the garden

I went out and began to breathe and listen to the birdies, it’s like an elixir for the soul, a magic elixir helps you to come back and center again.

Some of the birdies were singing, it sounded like do over! You are loved! This is alright! You’re okay. You’re ok you’re alright don’t take this so seriously don’t get so whacky.
And it helps!

And how quickly this can turn around for you – when you take a moment for yourself instead of pressing on with whatever you think is more important, it gets better.

Check in with yourself, and you’ll get straightened out quickly.

I’ve been living my policy to stop, drop, and roll. I stop what I’m doing, I drop into my heart, and I roll with the feelings there. Then I can find out what’s needed instead of ignoring all of this “inconvenience.”

I went outside, that was the only guidance. I stood there breathing and listening to the birdies, who seem to always be singing my name. And I felt so much better. I hugged myself tightly, affirming:

I love me no matter what.
I forgive my mind for its kooky stories.
I’m appreciating the opportunity to choose again.
NOW is always new.

We are so much more than the stories we tell. We are joy. We are light. We are infinite possibility. And we always have the freedom to go down the tubes with the klinky thinking. Or not.

The stories we tell are just stories, but if we keep investing in them like truth,
You’re a loser
You can’t get it together
You should have made something of yourself by now
Or why did you wait so long to get started

If you keep on with that, you will continue to call that energy in.

Thank goodness we remember! And we can practice.

It’s never too late, and you never could be excluded,

You are amazing

There’s always a practice where we can learn to be gentle and kind as life keeps happening, to accommodate and adjust and love us.

All is well
I am being kind and gentle with myself today
How can I bounce myself back into the light
Like I am precious cargo
Like a precious baby
Treat me with care

Even if it’s a day where you have to work or pick up the kids or get the things done, that’s how it is… we still have stuff we need to do sometimes we can’t stop but that shouldn’t be the excuse to blow off how you’re feeling either.

So in closing, you are not your fear and you are not your poopy stories.
That they occur inside your mind that you hear your thoughts around that saying that you are… it’s just a thing, it just happens…

But what if you practice with it, what if you could learn to say, no big deal! No big deal! As you hear your thoughts.

I know how to change the channel, I know how to turn down the volume on a radio, I know how to unsubscribe from certain kinds of advertisements.

I know how to turn things off and so do you.

It's Okay to Have a Bad Day

Remember, my friend, we are all in this together, walking together, and we are mighty.
