Attitudes are contagious - is yours worth catching?

Thursday, July 12, 2012

I heard this quote some time ago and it's really come into play at my job a lot. There are a few people, one who I work closely with, as in work-wise and also physically, ummmm well, really likes to share her attitude and everything she thinks no matter how rude or offensive. (Nice things don't seem to occur to her very much apparently.)

I pray about this every day, I chant my mantras, I know it's not personal, I let it roll off my back - but honestly, it gets to me! Every once in a while I just blow my stack and speak up for myself though I know it accomplishes nothing.

For the last two days (after a discussion from the manager) she has actually been NICE!!! I'm finding myself truly stunned at how much energy I have for myself now that I'm not having to expend so much energy to ward against her negative energy!!

I slept about 3 hours the last two nights and I'm just fine. It's way past my usual bedtime and instead of dragging I feel like I could go on all day (or all night as the case may be). Normally I'm just ever so tired all the time I can barely function and spend most of my free time in bed, now I feel like going for a run!

It's amazing what a difference in attitude makes - hers and mine.

    It's very tiring to force a positive attitude. I'm glad the boss had a talk with this person as it doesn't make for good working conditions. Now perhaps you can get back to enjoying your job!
