Attitude Adjustment

I’m trying to change my perspective on Mondays and my job, in general. 8 years is a long time to carry around dread for both, and it’s exhausting. So today marks the day I put things in perspective and change my point of view. My goal is to go into work, do my job to the best of my ability, make improvements when and where I can, try to encourage my staff to be better employees and do better work, and lead by example. I work with some difficult people and have a lot of responsibility, but I need to find away to do my job without the stress and angst and frustration that I’ve been carrying around for so long. While I don’t love my job, I do love the salary and benefits it provides and that it allows me to provide for my family and myself. I think I’m good at it, so I try to find satisfaction in a job well done, knowing I will do better (or at least I’ll try to do better) than those that came before,

It won’t be easy, as my job can be taxing, I’m a consummate worrier, and stress and anxiety come as naturally to me as breathing and picturing Hugh Jackman naked, but nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    Think back to 8 years ago. Now, didn’t that go by fast? Where does the time go? Eight years from now will have gone even faster, once you’re looking back on it. 🙂

    good for you to try to change your approach and perspective.

  4. I am a worrier too, so I totally get what you are saying. I think I was born worrying. I hate being that way, but I am. I think you have a good attitude to have for the next 8 years. I frequently have to do one of those attitude adjustments myself! 4 days until the weekend!

    Try this thought: each Monday = one less week before retirement! Naked hugs!

    ❤ picturing Hugh Jackman naked!
    Excellent idea that, adjusting the attitude. I've heard that smiling helps, even or especially when you don't feel like smiling. Good luck!
