The Day After

It’s the day after a really bad day. Yesterday, your scenes sucked, and today has to be better, or why are you even here?

Today feels like waking up from a bad dream. It feels like a karmic hangover. It feels like the day after you’ve been operated on. It feels like the first day you’ve been able to eat solid food in a week. It feels like the day after you got a notice from the bank that there’s been a mistake on a mortgage application, and that house, the one you have your heart set on? Well, maybe it’s not going to happen.

It’s the day after days like all of those. Here’s a game that’ll help you make Today a better day than Yesterday.

Game of the Day: Cutting Room Floor

So you are trying to recover from the bad day that happened yesterday. Let’s pretend that you are an actor in a movie and you can have the director cut out or edit any of the “bad things” that happened yesterday.

Think through the “script” of yesterday and rewrite new scenes in the place of the bad things that happened. For instance if you wish you could take back the way you reacted to a coworker, now script out new lines of dialogue of how you could handle that part.

Get creative!
