Thank you guys for all the kind words from my little emotional down turn of last week. I do really appreciate all your wonderful comments. And because you are always here, even in bad time, I wanted you to be in on the good ones too. I got a promotion at work yesterday. WOOT!! WOOT!!!
I am not an overly positive person. It actually takes me quite a bit of mental work to see the good side of things (I think its genetic) but I do try. People always think I am happy because I smile a lot, so when I am not smiling people think Armageddon is not far behind. So the past few days has not only bummed me out but has also impacted those around me.
So I decided to “put on my big girl panties”, suck it up, and pull myself out of my funk by thinking of good things and good reasons why these seemingly bad things were happening to me. And when you look hard enough, you can find the good in everything. And when you emerge from the storm and look back on the said bad things , you may find that they have led you to the good thing you didn’t even know you were headed for. It also makes you appreciate that good thing even more when you get it.
So since I love quotes here are a few to keep you going this week:
“You’ve got a lot of choices. If getting out of bed in the morning is a chore and you’re not smiling on a regular basis, try another choice.”
~Steven D. Woodhull
“God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it’s me.”
~Author unknown, variation of an excerpt from “The Serenity Prayer” by Reinhold Neibuhr
“People are like holidays. Do others see you as Christmas, or more like Tax Day?”
~Ward Elliot Hour
