I try to stay on the positive side of things, even when things aren’t working out in my favor. I tend to handle things better when I am in a positive mindset, regardless of what is being thrown at me. It is not always easy, because getting angry or frustrated is a much more satisfying (at least in the moment) way to be. However, today was not one of those days.
I had a really good night’s sleep, which probably helped. My alarm woke me up and one of my favorite songs was on the radio. I stayed in bed to hear the rest of the song, which is a great way to start the morning. I had breakfast at home. My wife and I had just gone shopping yesterday and I love having that first bowl of cereal from a fresh box. It’s just so good! I took a shower and got ready for work. The drive in was surprisingly uneventful – no accidents, nobody driving twenty miles below the speed limit in front of me and nobody tailgating the crap out of me either. Just the usual traffic and nothing more.
I got in to work and settled down at my desk. I had a few things to do straight away, so I started in on that stuff. Sometimes things are like a big snarl at work and it takes me forever to untangle the mess: who is doing what, where is this thing, who has that piece? It can take me all day sometimes to get just a few questions answered. Not today! I miraculously had all the information I needed to complete my to-do list. And my boss didn’t send me any of those annoying “drop everything you’re doing and do this for me right this second because it was due yesterday” kind of projects. It was somebody’s birthday at work, so we had a party in the break room with pizza and cake for lunch. Getting paid to eat cake is my idea of a great time.
My ride home was the same as my ride in: not a whole lot going on. I listened to the satellite radio in the car and got to hear some songs I had nearly forgotten completely about, the last time I heard them was so long ago. It was a nice change from hearing the same few songs over and over again on the radio. I came home and my wife and I made some dinner – hooray again for grocery shopping! – watched a few episodes of a show we like and are behind on, and then I decided to blog. Some people might call this kind of a day boring at worst or uneventful at best. I just call it nice. A couple more days just like this would be great! OK, since the day started so good because I had a good night’s sleep, I’m going to stop here. Goodnight!
