There are days...
Tuesday, July 02, 2019
There are days when I think it would be great to retire...now. Today is one of those days. I don't like the way some of my co-workers act and I definitely don't like the way they treat me.
But, I still have the power. The power to choose how I want to act. I do not want to react. I want to be a good person. I want to be kind. I don't want to be passive-aggressive. I don't want to be rude. I don't want to exclude others from activities.
Like the T-shirt says: I want to be the person my dog thinks I am. Well since I have three cats then I want to be the person that my cats know will feed them ... on time, take them to the vet when they are sick, bring them catnip-filled toys and snuggle with on the couch.
I want to be that person working in her garden, whom neighbors stop to talk with and ask for advice about their gardens.
I want to be that person who is there when her Mom needs help cleaning or takes her to Costco to get cheaper gas for her car.
I want to be that person who encourages her son to apply for different positions so he can be confident in his future.
I choose to be a better person because I know I can but most importantly because I want to be a better person... for myself and for everyone I touch.
