Every day, isn’t the best day. Some days are better than others, by chance or by circumstance. Other times, it just depends on what mindset you are in. Sometimes if I have a lot going on, the stress alone makes the month, week or day feel like it is the longest and the worst, even though it really isn’t; I just have a lot going on inside my own head.
For example, a I hear lot of folks say 2018 was the worst, but before that 2017 was the worst and 2016 and 2015 and so on and so forth. I used to think that too, like the whole year is just a terrible year of bad luck, but when I really look back, it wasn’t so terrible after all. I mean every day has its ups and downs, and some days it seems like the day is more down then up, but to group a whole year as being horrific seems unreasonable and dramatic…. I mean at least you learned something, right, even if it was an awful thing to learn? I guess that is what I am writing about, overlooking the small things, the things you learned along the way.
Don’t get me wrong, there are some days where I find myself reflecting on how horrible and stupid the day was or how boring something may be; but even then, I STILL learned something… Take today for example, it’s Friday (or Fri-YAY! as I say) and it may not be the most exciting or productive day, but I still learned things along the way:
I learned that the commute on Friday morning is always wonderful every week (keep not working on Friday folks, so I can fly right into the office)
I learned that Twitter header images are super pixelated and in order to get a clean header you need to take a nice high-definition image and edit it in Photoshop (but it must be under 10mb file size) and should be 1500 x 500 pixels and you should export it and save it out for the web.
I learned that my fiancé’s aunt and uncle are coming up from Florida and that his sister’s birthday is on Monday.
I learned that my co-worker’s daughter is vacationing in Turks and Caicos this week and is coming back tomorrow.
I learned that I got locked out of one of my health insurance websites for attempting to logon too many times probably for an incorrect password AND I learned that trying to call them over the phone is useless, because the robot voice won’t let me get past ‘tell me what you’re calling about in a little more detail’…apparently my problems aren’t good enough to go to the next step and speak to a representative.
I learned that there is an apple core high up in a tree located right outside my office. Why someone felt the need to climb the tree and place it there, I do not know… My desk faces the window so I am reminded of its existence every time I look outside.
I learned that I miss posting on WordPress, hence this Friday rant…
So whatever your day is like or week, month or even year remember that you are always learning…
