change of mood but not attitude

Sunday, September 20, 2009

I have had a temporary change of mood. An insensitive co worker made comments at work that were terribly hurtful. I would have rather had the sticks and stones thrown at me. I had decided that I would just go home and plop down in my bed and pull the covers up.
NO! I will not let the insensitivity of another take away what I enjoy and what helps me cope. I have dedicated myself to the nutrition tracker and decided that even if I did not blog or communicate with anyone else I would at least track my food. Well, if you do food, you might as well track fitness. Oh, and you should really check the friend feed and see if there is anything new on your spark page. Oh look, a sweet person emailed, better respond.
I cannot say that I am cheery, I am hurt and tearful. I am not thinking of the positive. These are temporary feelings that will not always be this intense. My attitude about what I am doing with my life and what goals I have set out to accomplish has not changed. I have a positive attitude about my ability to succeed. I have a temporary change of mood that will turn around with a little help from my friends and my new-found Spark Friends!
May God, Allah, and/or Your Higher Power bless you for caring about each other.

    Mean people suck.....but you ROCK!!!! Don't ever let someone else determine your self worth. They should never have that power. Remember to love yourself. It is one of the most important things you can do. With self love comes the realization that everything we do to this person we love is for a good reason. We workout because we love ourself. We make better food choices because we love ourself. When we beat ourself up we lose our will power and determination. When we love ourselves we have the mindset we need to succeed. Love yourself. YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!!!

    I'm sorry that person was mean but you are the better person for forgiving them and not letting them own you! You are in control and they will be the one to pay in the long run! God bless you and keep me. Good luck and don't let satan win!

    Some people just have no idea how what pop's out of their mouth can be so hurtful. You are the better person for not letting them suck you into negativity! You've been such a sweetheart to me! I think you're super!!

    Oh boy, I had a crappy day too - I worked really hard a couple of years ago fundraising to build a playground at my kids school and last night, someone doused it in gasoline and burnt it beyond repair. But these downtimes are not an excuse to go pig out anymore - I head to the Spark site and have yet to blog tonight but like you... I will and I know doing all that will be enough to make me feel better and stick to my personal plan. It gives me a better outlook on what happened too - I know I can work on fixing the other things tomorrow, but I have to work on me right now and every day.
    Thank you for posting - it made me feel better too.

    That is a great way to think things through, I understand it is difficult but it is all true! You always have a place to come where people are here for you! Try to have a better day. Give yourself the credit you deserve and don't give your co worker anymore power over you by thinking about her!
