My Best

12 May

Good Enough?

I go into everyday with the intention of doing my best. I do my best at my job, with my training, as a friend, and as a daughter. I want to die, known as being a hard worker, giving my all everyday all day. My best may not be your best, my best may be below your standards, my best may be less than it was the day before, however I give all that I can give in the moment. There are days (a lot of days) where I am tired, where I didn’t get enough sleep, where I my mind can’t focus, but I give everything I have to the people and the situations at hand. My goal is for you to do the same. Are you giving your best today? Can you possibly work any harder? Can you be any better today? In this moment?

Negativity

1 May

Don’t fall into the trap of being negative, just taking whatever life brings your way. Set the tone for victory and success.
– Joel Osteen


I use to be a negative person. When I woke up in the morning my first thoughts were negative. I didn’t want to be awake, I didn’t want to go to school, I didn’t want to work hard, I just wanted to be in my grumpy place. Why? I couldn’t really tell you, that is just how I felt at the time. Could it have been the negative people I was surrounding myself with? Possibly. Could I have just been unhappy? Possibly. Whatever the reason is, it is irrelevant. After a long journey to finding my happy place and peace within my self the negativity went away. I now focus on surrounding myself with people who are going to be a positive influence in my life. People who will lift me up instead of tear me down- and I focus on being one of these people to others as well.
Whatever the morning brings, maybe you wake up on the wrong side of the bed, have a bad workout, or are late to work, turn your day around. Don’t let the little things in life bring a dark cloud to your sunny day. Find the happiness in your day and your life will be much more peaceful.
