Not Doing it that Way

I have been feeling a little down the last couple of days. I know the majority of it…..one being how rude and impolite people are. I was about to write a post about it when I thought ‘hell no I am not letting those entitled feeling dip shits to dictate my mood. I am moody enough without allowing them space in my head whilst not paying rent.’
So I thought I would pick three nice things that happened to me:
Sat: Lady tells me that I have a beautiful smile. And that it was so much easier to do errands knowing that someone so friendly was there greeting and keeping them safe.
Sat/Today: A couple I have never seen before came in Saturday. Wonderful men. I had them laughing. Well today they came in and as soon as they saw me: Look it is the happy lady from Saturday. I giggled and told them I was cashiering tomorrow but they assured me they would find me. I told them to listen for my voice and laugh you can hear it everywhere.
Sat/Today: Numerous customers thanked me for all the hard work cleaning carts and keeping them safe we do. It is always so nice to hear.
I realize I could sit here and gnaw on my lip tormenting myself with the inanity of it all. I do not want to do that though. I want to shake it off and let it go.
One day Karma is going to kick rude people everywhere. I may never get to see it performed but I hope that I might just once…….I have though been told that this is the wrong attitude to have. So ignore the crossed fingers and toes.
One thing I did do today that was so uncool……drove over my foot with three carts hard…..am figuring will have a massive bruise tomorrow. Who knows. Tomorrow is a mystery…..just like the things that come out of my mouth.

  1. Yeah, I’ve been having to do that a bit lately – change my thought process to something positive instead of being eaten away by the negative.
    Honestly, while reading your post, I kept thinking of that song “Shake It Off”

  2. My mumma always said, “look after your footsies and they will look after you”…not sure exactly what that meant…but it seems very wise at times!
    Just be lovely…..we have abusive patients to deal with at work….by being lovely and not allowing them to change who we are – we are SHAKING IT OFF!!!
