Today is the Day!

Monday, September 27, 2010

I live a day at a time. Each day I look for a kernel of excitement.
In the morning, I say: 'What is my exciting thing for today?'
Then, I do the day. Don't ask me about tomorrow.

    I work with a group of complainers, which was making my days extremely stressful. One day I had had enough of listening to the constant complaining. I politely mentioned to one person (after her complaining to me), 'I am looking for atleast one positive each day. Each morning I pray on the way to work, thanking Him for a great day. And I am trying to concentrate on the positives in my day instead of the negatives. Since I've been doing that, I find my days are so much nicer.' She agreed that was a good idea. And from that day on, they didn't involve me in their negative conversations. This change began last year, and this year they still don't involve me. This year I've added posting positive things that have occurred during the work day, and making sure I give my boss atleast one positive feedback item each week. What we focus on really makes a difference.

Satrurday in the Fall

Saturday, September 25, 2010

Saturdasys in the South mean only one thing, football!. Too bad the weatherman doesn't realize it's fall and football is not meant to be played in 95 degree weather. The weather aside and the beating we took notwithstanding, it was a good day of gathering at the tailgate for food and fellowship before and after the game, then home to watch still more games on TV. College Football Rocks!

    I just wondered if it counted if I commented on my own blog.
