Feeling blue

1 Comment

Just feeling a little blue this day. Couldn’t seem to get the engine started fully till now and this is when I should be getting some rest. Torn between the desire to wind down and relax and utilizing every minute to accomplish something or another. Running late on a lot of things. Worried about a lot of people. Can’t seem to come to a point where I can breathe easy about anything it seems.

Such is life, I had a good stretch and now I have to tighten up and power through as some say. Got some tough weeks coming up but looking forward to some challenges also. While doing this might seem like pressure, its kind of a release. I’m trying to use it to help stay positive in difficult times. Its easy to slip back into sweating the small stuff. This reminds me of the basics. Does the family have its health, do we all have a roof and food. Then life is good.

So I’m going to make like the reflection at the waterline and smile like this boat is and really get rolling on Saturday.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Did you ever have a bad week at work and then go by a lotto ticket with that specifically in mind and walk out the door saying to yourself “come on baby?”

I wish I could remember what my last thought was. It was a really good one. I lost it between the kitchen and the basement. I will probably have to stub my toe to remember it though.

A wise friend of mine said the other day that he is looking for more “win win” situations in work and life. I think that is good advice for all of us. The days of “win-lose” should be looked at with disrespect. Greed should not be idolized. One can be very successful but not greedy.
