What do you do on a bad day?


We all have bad days. It's inevitable. Perhaps the situation itself isn't all that bad but we feel bad nonetheless. So what do you do when you're having a bad day?

You try to end it in a good way. Every day, regardless of how bad the day went, deserves a good finish. Here are a few ideas to turn that frown upside down:
  • Think about what went right during the day.
  • Review what went wrong and identify things you can learn from to prevent it from happening again.
  • Watch a funny movie.
  • Do something nice for someone else that you know would make him or her happy.
  • Call up a good friend and talk about what happened.
  • If you don't have a good friend, ask yourself what would a good friend do for you if you had one? Then do it for yourself.
  • If all fails, know that you are enough.
As you can see, there are many ways to finish up a bad day in a good way. So take heart. Don't run away from problems. Face them and knock them down one by one. Only when you understand your situation would you know how to approach and handle it. I know you can do it, because due to countless generations of refinement, you were born to take on any and all situations you would face in life. Yes, bad days are inevitable but so are your abilities to resolve them with aplomb. ☮

Glory in war is a myth

Homer's The Iliad and Odyssey tell of grand and exciting battles in all their glory. Of course both works are part of Greek mythology. They are myths in more ways than one.

It is also a myth that military personnel and veterans love war. Those who have experienced war and its horrific effects firsthand rarely want more of it.

Then who are the ones clamoring for more war? They are inevitably those who are profiting from it and aren't fighting it. Some people call them warhawks. I call them chickenhawks. Chickenhawk is a much better description since they are comfortable with sending other people's children to die for political gain. They are often the same people who talk a lot about family values. They are failures in diplomacy and strategy.

The only place you will ever find glory in war is in a work of fiction. And it is fiction that politicians and their ilk sell the idea of war. Don't believe it! I understand war. Having been born in Vietnam, I've been affected…

How much does it cost to send 2654 migrant children to Disney World?

Migrant children being separated from their parents on the Mexican border breaks my heart. They didn't break any laws. They are kids. As a child immigrant myself in 1980, I simply can't imagine being without my mom during that time. It would have been an extremely traumatic experience.

So what should we do with these precious 2654 migrant children?

Why take them to Disney World of course!

Crazy, right? I heard my friends say right away: "It costs money, Thomas!"

They're right. In fact, I even changed my mind about the concept of money I discussed just a few days ago. Money can absolutely be beneficial here. But before I go through the financial figures, let's talk briefly about intangible benefits.

When I first arrived in America, everyone was so nice and welcoming. When I say everyone, I meant everyone. I want the same for all migrant children. What says "Welcome to America!" more than taking them to Disney World?

While they wait to be reunited wi…

Man among men

True love is to highlight the good in others and downplay the bad parts. It's not you don't see the bad parts. It's just you want to point out and build upon the good parts.

Babe Ruth struck out a lot. But that's not what he was good at and famous for.

What an extraordinary sight yesterday when I witnessed a man so comfortable with himself that in the midst of criticisms lobbed at him that he still pointed out the good things about his critics. He's a man among men. ☮❤
