It’s okay, not to be okay.

And today I’m not okay.

Some days I feel like I can do anything possible and even impossible. I wake up with boundless energy, ready to conquer the world. On those days, my confidence soared, and I believe that nothing can stop me.

However, there are also days like today, when I’m not okay.

Today, the weight of the world seems to rest solely on my shoulders. It feels as if every attempt I undertake ends in disappointment. The tasks I set out to accomplish don’t unfold as planned, leaving me with a sense of frustration and futility. The energy I pour into my work feels wasted, leaving me questioning everything. On days like this, it’s tempting to stay in bed and wallow in a sea of self-doubt and disappointment.

But guess what? It is okay to not feel okay. It’s a natural part of being human, to have ups and downs, and to face challenges and setbacks. It’s unrealistic and unhealthy to expect ourselves to feel perfect and achieve everything we desire every single day. Life is a series of peaks and valleys, and today happens to be one of those valleys.

However, as difficult as it may seem, it’s important to remember that tomorrow is another day.
