I had a crappy day and to be honest, it made me pretty pissy. I’m in Charlotte, NC working this week and I had the best adventure planned for today. It might be one of my best yet. Then my work schedule got changed around on me. I know this can happen, but today it just rubbed me wrong. I was so excited. I tried to hold out hope for as long as I could.
Then I quickly changed my plans. As soon as I got off work, a storm moved in ruining those plans, too. Add insult to injury, I get to leave for a job at 6 a.m., which means I’m getting up before dark.
Completely exasperated and irritated I got on the treadmill to burn off some of the extra energy that wasn’t so positive. I decided to take a book I recently bought in the airport called “The Happiness Project”. I will probably write an entire blog just about this book, but I can say it is very timely.
One of the things that resonated with me today is friendships. I’ve recently been dealing with a friendship I’m not sure how to move forward with. There’s so much negativity and it feels very one sided. I have been debating on whether I should cut ties and wondering why I feel guilt about doing so. Then, I read today, “Of all the things that wisdom provides for living one’s entire life in happiness, the greatest by far is the possession of friendship”. After a little pondering while trying to keep from tripping on the treadmill, I decided I will cut the negative friendships out and spend that energy on enhancing the amazing friendships I have that bring me so much happiness.
Tonight, I will be putting positive energy out into the universe. I’ll send encouraging words, check in, and just reconnect.
