About Me

My photo
Mother of 2, Child of God in Atlanta "They always ask me if I make it am I going to forget about them, but the question is, if I don't make it will they forget about me?" My spin : RealTalk When u are up everyone wants to hang on, but look for the ones that let you lean on when you are down. Remember...don't just look for me when I am up, support me when I'm down. ♥ In prosperity, your friends know you, in adversity, you know your friends. I asked God for strength, I got adversity. I asked God for wisdom, I was made a fool of. I asked for patience, I had a difficult relationship. I looked back, He gave me what I asked for. Adversity showed me I was stronger than I thought; being a fool opened my eyes to discernment making me wise; the difficult relationship showed me that patience is earned not given. Blessings come in many forms, not all of them recognizable.

Monday Musings

Monday's used to bug me.  I used to hate getting up and dragging back into the office.  Then a few things happened. I realized if I changed my outlook I could change my attitude. I began to focus on what I liked about my office.  That made me look forward to going.

Why did I call this Monday Musings?  I have a friend who only has insomnia on work nights. I asked her did she like her job. She emphatically said NO.  Now I'm no psychologist, but I know I had the same issue when I was in a job I detested. I hated the commute, the office politics, and the environment.  I would have trouble sleeping and have to make that hour plus commute on very little sleep. I started to focus on what I liked (and it was hard to find things but I focused on the few bright spots.) It eased my anxiety somewhat until I could get another job.

In all situations now, I now try to think of the bright side.

I am grateful to do what I love for a living.
I am grateful to have a job that allows me to meet my needs and indulge in some of my wants.
I am grateful for co-workers with a great sense of humor.
I am grateful for the "coffee club"
I am grateful for a 10 minute commute.

Developing an attitude of gratitude helps me have a restful sleep on most nights.


Thanks for reading. 📖

This is so true and I have been trying to apply it to all aspects of my life. Sometimes, it's a challenge..a HUGE challenge...but I am making the effort. Hopefully, one day it will be like breathing and become 2nd nature to me to find the beauty in every single person I come across.

Right. It is very challenging because I have always been skeptical of a persons motives. I am trying to see that some people don't want anything but your time.
