Attitude Change

Lately I have been pretty frustrated with my job and how things are going there. Basically, what it boils down to is, I have been very negative at work. I noticed this last week and things kind of spiraled out of control on Friday. 

I needed some time by myself this weekend and to reflect on everything so that I could get my head back on straight for Monday. 

The weekend was actually fabulous. I only got about 20 minutes by myself laying out in the pool while Aspen slept, but those 20 minutes were amazing. It was very quiet and peaceful! Just what I needed! I even got a nap after that AMAZING!

But then comes Monday and it seemed like every other email and phone call I received was bad news. I was getting SOOOO angry. I told my boss about this right before lunch and he gave me a little pep talk and told me to head to lunch and take sometime for myself to get everything sorted out.

Man did I need that! 

I went to this little shop in town to get my Herbal Life shake for lunch (yes I'm trying to be healthy) and wrote a little in my notebook. Mostly just spent time reflecting on my current situation and realized that I love the people I work with! I seriously work for amazing people and don't want to be any where else! 

So what needs to change? 

My ATTITUDE! I need to get myself out of the funk that I am in and push through!

I know that by changing my attitude right now about work and well everything in my life. By being optimistic and looking at the bright side that I can accomplish anything and deal with anything that comes my way.

Is my job stressful? Absolutely! 
Can life seem out of control sometimes? Yep!
Can I control what happens around me? NOPE!

The ONLY thing I can control is ME. 

I can control my attitude towards the things that come my way. I can make a bad situation better by the way I approach it.

I know this is a simple lesson and quite a simple thing to do but it seems so hard sometimes! There are some days that just the idea of having to change my attitude makes me want to scream but I know this is the only thing that will make my life better right now and well, always.

Have you felt like this lately? Or am I the only one having a bad attitude these days :(

  1. Oh goodness I feel like this a lot when it comes to work! I have found that the better my attitude is the better I am sure I can deal with it all!

    Thank you for spreading JOY and sharing at the Oh What a HAPPY Day party.

    1. I definitely realized that this week Holly. I am the only one that control how I feel or react to a situation.

      Thanks for taking the time to stop by :D

  2. This is great advice. The only thing you can control is you.

    I feel this way about my job often. I like the people I work with but I just hate the place and the drama that some people seem to want to sometimes start. But I guess that goes on everywhere! I think I'd do best running my own business!

    Hope you have a great weekend. :)
