A week ago I was so happy to read Alexander and the Terrible,Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
to a 1st grade class at Herrera Elementary School because I read when I was a kid! 
The Story:
“Disney’s ‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’ follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander () as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life – a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns he is not alone when his mom (), dad (), brother (), and sister () all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn’t had one.”

 It was wonderful! 
They were the most polite, and respectful group of kids I’ve ever met!
 ANDDDDD the MOVIE is coming out this Friday! (Say Whaaaa?)

With that, I’m going to give you some advice on handling a bad day like Alexander’s.
 Here’s something I learned that’ll blow your mind next time you have one.
You can’t control the events that happen, but you can control how you REACT to it. 

You can change your attitude?! WHAT!?!
  1. MUSIC! Listen to music that always makes you happy and DANCE! Shake it off! (ugh not u taylor swift….jkjkjk lololol)
  2. Do something good for someone to balance out the bad events that have happened. 
  3. If one bad thing happens after another, change your attitude. Complaining won’t do ANYTHING. Sulking won’t do ANYTHING. Being negative won’t do ANYTHING. 
  4. Remember, it’s just a day. Once it’s over you’ll have something to laugh about later!
  5. Lastly, count your blessings. I understand if you can’t “help” it, I mean, we’re all human, but have a cry session, then get on with your day. Because chances are there’s always someone out there who has it worse than you. Think of all the positive people and things you have in your life currently.  

You have the power to turn your day around.
So, the next time you’re feeling like Alexander, just try these steps!
Don’t forget! The movie comes out THIS FRIDAY!

Love, Maya
