It’s not about perfection, it’s about progression.
So much of life is dependent on how we choose to react to what happens to us.
It’s mood congruency that we have to thank—the phenomenon that once we’re in a bad mood, we’re more likely to stay in a bad mood. There are just some days when we wake up miserable. So if psychology tells us that we’re essentially stuck feeling down if we happen to start off our day on the wrong foot, is there hope in turning it around?
