Do you ever get into a real over dramatic state of mind, you feel like the whole world is against you and nothing is going in your favor?..but if you just took a step back and looked at the big picture you’d realize the minor inconvenience you’re facing now is really not that big a deal in the grand scheme of things.
Welp. That’s me this week, Anthony and I found out on Wednesday that his time off request for a vacation we were planning that is LESS THAN A MONTH AWAY was denied..naturally i’m crushed and I feel like nothing else could go wrong, but truthfully besides that one minor ( okay maybe major ) inconvenience everything is going right.
All that being said, I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and if they’re a reason something is happening or not going the way it was originally planned. I am very emotionally driven so every small issue causes me to cry, I cry when I am happy, sad, angry and sometimes for no reason at all ( which sounds pathetic but I assure you it’s not that bad ) I am slowly learning that crying about these inconviences will not solve the problem, however finding the lesson in it, learning from it and making myself move past helps me to carry on sooner.
I’ve compiled a list of things that went right this week, to help me stay focused on the positive and not get hung up on the upsetting aspects of life..
- I got a new head shot! This past Tuesday, my team and I went and got our head shots updated, which is always fun…although I always find something wrong in my photos-i.e the slight head tilt that make my glasses look as if they’re laying crooked on my head.
2. I’ve begun setting actions into motion to help me on to my road to success, I have been waking up earlier, and I made a list of actions that are now nonnegotiable in my work life. I have normal anxieties surrounding aspects of my new career change and I know that in order to keep my success and become more successful I need to do the “hard stuff”.
3. probably the most bitter-sweet day this week had to have been Thursday night, I finished my final shift at my second job. I worked in a kitchen at a nursing home local to my area, this was my second job, but first job that wasn’t seasonal and after nearly 3 years of working there I left for the final time as a diet aide. I plan to go back and keep the connections that I have made over the years with residents and other staff members. I want to be sad but I know that me leaving this job was really the first big step to my future real estate success. I worked with some pretty great people for so long, and my boss was an absolute peach!
What trials did you face this week and how were you able to over come them?
