This morning, I had a text conversation with my sister and it went a little something like this…
Sister: Good Morning
Me: I was hoping I crashed into a ditch this morning
Sister: OMG I’m cracking up!!! Don’t say that!!!
Me: I really was:
Me: I was also trying to be positive as well
Me: Like at least I have a job
Sister: True! I have to remind myself of that too.
Sister: I also have a problem with thinking I wish I had this and that but I need to be happy with what I have.
First I should say, me and my sister have a dark sense of humor when we talk about things. We also have a tendency to forget how lucky we really are, me so more then her. If you happen to follow me on social media I’m sure you’ve seen me complain about my current job that wasn’t suppose to be my current job, and how much I hate it…lol…long story. But I really have been pushing myself to learn to appreciate my job, because I was jobless for 3 months and I remember freaking out because I didn’t know how I was going to pay my bills and car note if I didn’t find something quick fast and in a hurry. I mention all of this to say this…sometimes we spend so much time harping on what we don’t have or don’t like or hate about something that we forget about all the things we’re blessed to have.
Last week I was able to secure a much needed second part-time job, and even though I rather be working the job I originally wanted with the pay I wanted…I know this is just a step closer to being able to live the life I want to have. With this second job I’ll be able to save up enough money to get back into school by the fall and move into a new apartment, so that gives me something to look forward too.
I know it’s hard to ALWAYS look on the positive side…please trust I really do….I’m no Positive Patty, but I find that constantly being upset about things I don’t have or that aren’t going my way only drains me even more. And when you work in customer service like I do, the last thing I need is yet another thing draining the life out of me lol. AGAIN…i’m no super positive, always look on the sunnyside type of gal, but I do know things will get better and that’s worth being happy about.
I also know it’s just nice to rant sometimes, so here’s your chance! In the comment section below let me know what’s currently bothering you or you’re currently hating this Tuesday lol. But then you also have to leave something you’re currently thankful for as well. Keeping a healthy balance you know lol.
As always thanks for continuing to rock out with me and my little blog here. It means alot.
