Best.Day.Ever

cheesecake.jpgI mentioned moving to a new (happier) location where I work, right? As in, my desk is no longer in cube-land, I'm not sitting next to an over-dramatic-psychotic person, and I am no longer constantly freezing to death. (There are even days I can take off my third layer!) Well, the department area that I moved to gets spoiled on occasion by their supervisor.

Since I am close friends with their supervisor, I was spoiled as well. She went to Mocha House to get her lunch and bought slices of cheesecake for each of us! It was all work-related prizes for the others, but since I am not in that department and didn't do anything work-related for her, she told me that since I am such a great friend that mine is friend-related cheesecake. She also didn't want me feeling left out watching the others eat cheesecake. I did let her know that I wouldn't be totally heart-broken if she were to not treat me the way she does them. I also told her that in doing so it means something random and amazing will happen in her future. (Karma, you know? Which, yes, we can take control of Karma on our own simply by doing something nice for others. Ahem.)

I do tell her quite often that she is pretty amazing, that she doesn't get paid enough, that she is truly underappreciated (not just here, but in her personal life, too). So, I am feeling pretty damn grateful to have someone in my life that randomly brings me treats, like delicious, to-die-for, cheesecake. 

Grateful Wednesday

| No Comments

What are you feeling good about in life today? In complete honesty I don't have to look hard to find what I am grateful for. It's the things in life we all need. A job to pay the bills for the things we need and hopefully something leftover for savings and the things we want. People who we love and love us in return, no strings attached. A place we can call our own. Hobbies we enjoy. Life in general.

Lately there are days I have a hard time getting up in the morning. Not because I didn't sleep {which happens often anyway} but because so many of them are filled with things I have to do. Some of those days are filled with nothing to do. When you're at work though the very last thing you want to do is go around asking others if they need help with anything. Now, don't get me wrong, I did this all the time. It got me in a bit of trouble. I admit that it was when I was working part time and all but the last thing I need is for them to consider putting me back to part time. So I don't ask, or if I do it is only to certain people.

When I wake up my first thought has been I wish I could call off. I could really use a mental health day. Why can't I give myself permission to do this? Then I think about how I only have five days off. Two are scheduled. A comp day of 8 hours has already been wasted. I feel that I need to choose the right time to take the other three vacation days in order to maximize them. Therefore, I get out if bed.

I do have a day off coming, on the 1st. It's a day off work but it will still be quite busy as the Little Lady and I will be going for a tour at her soon to be university. I'm hoping for good weather and a lot of fun. Either way though we will make the best of it.

I'm trying to be grateful today. I try to be grateful every day. Some days can be overwhelming and I do my best to see the positive side. So, what are you grateful for today?
