Found this old oil can from my Mom’s old sewing machine in my workroom. Good thing I get to clean out every few years. One of the traits I got from her is the ability to speak my mind. Yeah, it’s landed me in trouble a few times. Yes, sometimes I can be rather blunt. Yes, I’ll say some difficult things to hear sometime. But it’s always with the intention of making things better.
But hey, sometimes people don’t want to hear others’ thoughts, observations, or ideas. They could feel challenged by it. They might want to wait and make it their own idea. They might not agree and do it in a way that will stifle more thoughts. Whatever it be the squeaky wheel doesn’t always get the oil. You will encounter a lot of things professionally. So bring your own oil.
Random Thoughts of the Day
- I find myself consumed with concern about someone close.
- Sites like Facebook and Nextdoor always remind me there are a lot of good people in the world but also a lot of angry and mean ones also. And it’s easy to ignore them online. It’s all a matter of who you run into that day while out and about. Maybe that is why they say life is a game of chance.
- Progress feels good. Completion feels better. Starting anew again feels best.
- I’m having trouble keeping up with all the needs going on. Good thing I’m healthy again.
