Attitude Adjustment

Yep....that's what I needed. An attitude adjustment. Yesterday was a very......shall we say......trying day at work. There's only about 6 people in our office and I really like 5 of them. Do the math. And which group do I chose to dwell upon? The 5 fun, happy, delightful people? Or the one PITA? Unfortunately I let the 1 annoying, irritating, aggravating person ruin my whole day. Aren't a lot of people like that? They let one person, or one situation, or one incident, color the rest of their day. Luckily for me, I have a kind, understanding, patient and insightful husband who listened to me rant and rave, then discussed options with me, and gave me his experience and opinion. And thankfully, I'm smart enough to listen to him. Today I went into work with a new attitude. I'm not going to bow and scrape to the PITA, I'm not going to be her BFF, I'm not even going to listen to her. I'm going to block her out, ignore her, and walk out to the room when she gets to be too much for me. And I'm going to surround myself with the people I enjoy.....the 5 other people in the room who are delightful. And hopefully, I'll go home with a bit of joy in my heart.

Both you and your hubby are smart people..such good advice given :-)

There are just some people in our lives that are a shinning example of what NOT TO BE such as the PITA that you know. Just smile when you see the PITA next and think about them being such a "good example"..heehee!

Oh, I like this husband of yours more and more. I am SO all about not giving other people the "power" to ruin my day. It still happens, but less than it used to. Good job, Tag! And good job in listening to him, Karen!
