Going through my journal this week, thinking I did ok. Had some good and bad days. Attitude was a problem for me this week. I was feeling, not sorry for myself, but maybe more, crabby and tired. I worked 10 out of the 11 days and there is construction being done down the street from our house. The crew starts at 7:00 am. I’m a second shifter so I don’t go to bed until about 2:00 am. So nothing horrible, but I get bitchy pretty easy without sleep.
Then I found out that my sister and her family had to put their dog down. She had been ill for a while and they made the choice to send her to doggy heaven.
I feel for them. It’s so hard to lose a pet. Pets give so much, expecting nothing in return. I have a dog and two cats and they are my fur babies. I have no children of my own so they are my children. I dread the day I have to say goodbye to one of them. So hearing this news gave me an attitude shift and new perspective. I found this quote.
So I am choosing to be grateful today. I have an amazing family, a job I love and coworkers I adore. God has blessed my life in so many countless ways.
This all goes back to my thoughts. Shifting my thoughts will change my feelings and that changes my actions and results. I am going to set myself up for success this week. Today is the start of a new week and going to really work on focusing on the positive. Today I get to go out with my stepdaughter to celebrate her upcoming wedding. Later tonight I will get my meal prep done to make this week easier.
Hope y’all have an amazing day. Until next time.
