Life Sucks Sometimes - The Power of a Really Good Kiss

Have you ever had one of those days where nothing seems to go right? You know, one of those days where you think that if one more thing goes wrong you are going to pack it in and go back to bed? Well I was having one of those days last week.

The day started with my alarm going off and me hitting snooze one too many times. Once up I proceeded to kick the corner of the dresser while rushing to get through my morning routine. Needless to say I was late for work and in a foul mood before I even sat down in my office. Being the optimistic person that I am, I tried to shake it off and focus on the day ahead. My positive thoughts only lasted a short while however as the wheels came off the bus. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong. The world was out to get me. I was sure of it.

Finally the work day was over! I was on my way home and I knew what was going to happen. My foul mood was going to ooze into the house like a thick fog. It was going to infect everyone in the house. If my wife and daughter were in a good mood they wouldn’t be for long. Unfortunately for most people that seems to be the result of a bad day, projecting it on others.

Arriving at home, I parked the car in the garage, mumbled to myself and walked into the house. Once inside, my wife met me at the door and laid a kiss on me. And boy what a kiss it was! Now she had no idea of the day I was having. After a few seconds the kiss ended and she asked “How was your day?” Do you know what my answer was? I responded to her question with one word, “Great!”

But wait a minute! My day wasn’t great! Why did I say “great?” In hindsight I realize that in that moment my day changed. In three seconds it went from terrible to great. The day was great!  At least now it was.  The sun was shining, I could smell fresh cut grass and someone somewhere was grilling out.  I sat on my deck that evening, enjoyed a wonderful dinner and thought, “I have a great life!” That is the power of a really good kiss!

That leads me to my next tip. Kiss your significant other when you greet her after work.  Linger a little longer than normal and let her get lost in the moment.  Do that every day next week and see what happens.  =)

  1. Hi Ryan. You left a nice comment on my blog, so I was going to check out your fishing blog, but this one caught my attention instead. (If men can read Glamour, then women can read Hubby Coach, right?)Both your analysis of yourself and the opposite sex are very insightful. Good job!

About Me

My photo
My name is Ryan and I am an extremely optimistic person, lover of this thing called life, and avid fisherman. While it sounds nice to say that I have a Masters Degree in Marketing and an Associates in Psychology, I find it is what I do with those degrees to be more important. I enjoy helping people whether it is through listening, offering advice, or, more often than not, helping people understand that true happiness lies in the ability to find joy in the “little things” that happen to each one us every single day.
