Sooooo, is it “Winter break” yet? I’m not much of a Facebook status-er, but lately I can’t seem to get enough of telling my friends and family about my awful interactions I’ve been having with people. Which stemmed from the fact that I’ve had multiple awful interactions with people during the past few weeks. (i.e. run in with the Naked Cowboy, live-tweeting a poor customer service experience, getting publicly spit on by an elderly lady, etc.)
I’ve come to the realization that I must be putting some kind of pessimistic energy out there to attract all of this negativity. If you know me personally, you probably know I’ve had a challenging few months. But I’m finally come to my senses about how I’m over feeling down in the dumps because of some silly external factors. Control what you can control. Live like you have no plan B. Both of these sayings I was told to by people I really admire and I’ve been repeating them nonstop lately. Here’s a few others to get our weeks off to a positive start:
Believe you can and you’re halfway there. – Theodore Roosevelt
Stay hungry — stay foolish. – Steve Jobs
What would you do if you weren’t afraid? – Sheryl Sandberg
I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling better already. How’s that for a Monday morning?
