Everybody has been through good days and bad days. There are times we are really down and feeling like giving up and like the weight of the world is on us. There are times that we so overwhelmed of happiness. We have somehow regrets things in our lifes but have we realized that we should never regret a day in our life because Good days gives us happiness and Bad days teach us experience. Both are essential to our life, all are Gods blessings! .... Do you agree? Life is a gift and we should be thankful for anything that God has give us, whether its good or bad. Godbless you all and happy posting!

I absolutely agree. Life is a gift and we need to treasure the good or the bad. In a way, it doesn't matter it is good or bad, because the most important thing is what you learn from your good or bad days. A bad today may be come a "great" in the future. As forrest gump would say "Life is a box of chocolate", you never know waht you are going to get, but that is the best part. If there is no bad, there is no good. I wrote a piece about life purpose a few weeks ago. I think you might like it. http://www.edithyeung.com/2007/04/11/what-is-your-life-purpose/

oh thanks for sharing. I like that qoute or saying and i have heard that in a koreanovela tv series. You are very right. When you learn from your bad experience you became a better person and when you are in good days and your happy, you will inspired others. Both are very useful.

To tell you mylottians frankly, I never had bad day, or so to say. My parents used to tell the their time was very bad till I became 6 years old and we had to pull on out life with two meals a day routine because financial crisis. Of course I was too a child to realise that. After I am 6 I never had any bad time. I thank god for that blessing.

Hi! thanks for dropping by. its good to hear that. I think you have a very positive outlook in life. everybody has bad times but that depends on the person how she/he treat it or handle it so in your case since you had a positive outlook even your in the face of bad times, it didnt turn like it is because you treat it positively which is good actually. Remain like that and influence others. Thanks and Godbless!

Hi Cheenlly, Yes you are right we have our good days and bad days,. Yes I would agree with you that we have a mixture of days and we have to have these kind of days although some people have more than others. I do agree that life is a gift and we have to be thankful to God for our life, God bless you too my friend.

We all certainly do have good and bad days. I know that I have both kinds of days. It seems lately I have been having more bad days because of my health but when I have a good day, I really enjoy it as much as I can. We should be thankful for everything that God has given us and everything he has done for us. There are so many people in this world that do not have the things that many of us have now. I wish other people had some of the things that I have too. Having bad days helps us to learn and cope and grow.

I agree with that. We should always be prepared and ready for whatever will happen to our everyday life. I think life is a continuous adventure, we just can't tell what will happen next. Just pray that God will always be there for you in whatever form of life you are, whether in joy or tears, victory or defeat and winning or struggling. Remember that there's always a lesson to be learned from all of it.

good days and bad days come to us, these have happened to all of us. the sad thing about this is the fact that seemingly, bad days outshine the good days. normal days count the most number of days that we have in this world. the good days come in rather few, but these are the ones which has paved the ways where we are. the bad days are those which tend to bring us to misfortune. we had to fight the bad days with our utmost capacity in order to come out the winner.

I totally agree with you! My perspective in life is that everything happens for a reason....whenever something happens that causes an impact in my life or my feelings towards others, I begin to reflect on what I could learn from that experience and embrace the ability to look foward for tomorrow. With every hapiness, pain and struggles that I have been through in life, it has not only left my mood swings high and low...lol...but has ultimately helped me shape into the person I am today.....So to answer your question..... "yes" Life is definantly a gift, and I am greatful to be one of the lucky ones, who has been choosen to fullfill it!

I agree with you. Unfortunately...I have had many more bad days then good ones. I guess that must make me a strong person...I don't know. I think that some people are just lucky and have no problems while others are not. I am thankful and I believe in God...but sometimes life can be very hard...

life can never be called life without ups and downs. that's the essence why we do live. we experienced bad days for us to learn something from it. we enjoy good days because of the blessings God poured on us . in both situations God has still shown His love to us. trials and tribulations come with both a purpose and a reward. "Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing." "Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to those who love Him" (James 1:2-4,12).

i fully agreewith you but will the religious institutions ever release its psychological hold on us by constantly reminding us that we are sinners and making us dependent on the fathers for forgiveness as representativesof god,

I agree with you. Life is the experience.To say a day good or bad is just a relative concept.I think it mostly depends on your feeling at that time.We may have opposite attitudes toward a fact at different time.The most important thing is to live a happy day today. Every morning when you wake up, try to smile to yourself,and told yourself in your heart that I will have a happy/good day today! Then you will feel relaxed .

You are right my friend. Even I had my share of good days and bad days. The point I observed is they always come in either extremes but never as a mixed bunch. I mean we have a whole lot of bad days to face or too many good days at once.... I did have my good days when I won almost everything I put my hand into, when my relations with my friends and my family was at its best. Then I had the Bad days too when I lost out in all my relations and my career took a steep curve downward. But I did learn from these bad experiences. i did realise my priorities were not set right and they needed to be changed. I also realised my outlook and attitude towards Life needed to be changed. Life is Good. The most successful peple are those who accept the good days happily, and the bad days equally gracefully so that they can experience and learn from them.

firstly, i must appreciate this post. yes, we do go through good and bad times and bad times makes us stronger while good times gives us the food for living. i believe, all should go through this alike and only good times doesn't make it good. one has to experience the bad times to accentuate good times. however, i often pass through a DO-NOT-EXIST kind of phase, where i donot know how to live. my parents never taught to handle such times. i feel helpless and grope for happier times. thanx.

Your post is precious to describe the life God has give us. But sometimes when the bad days come such as loads of bill waiting for you, heavy work pressure and frustrated love really make people gloomy doubting why God make the innocent people to suffer?

Many worship songs are filled with the fact we should praise God in all things. "Praise Him when I'm laughing, praise Him when I'm weeping, Praise Him when I'm young and when I'm old." "Blessed be your name when theres saddness in the offering, blessed be your name" So I believe good and bad are always there. We should always praise God. Do we? Well if others are like me, we dont think of praises when we are sad and upset just when we are happy. We need to learn to do both. Its hard to do it but try anyways.

I personally feel that God always gives us the best. Its just when we face some difficult times before our achieving something good, its just because God made us realise the actual worth of getting the good times in our life. That is if we do not face any problems do not struggle in life, we would not have the worth of having so much good with us. So if there are no downs in life, how willl know the value of ups. Its all the magic of God made for us and he always grace his beings with his best :-)
