Let’s not think of today as simply Wednesday, let us think of it as we are halfway to the weekend! I am not sure how, but we managed to survive the first half of the week, which at least for me was not easy because it was crazy busy! All I can say is I hope the last part of the week is a little easier and the pain and stress will ease up at least a little!! Why is it some weeks feel so much longer? I understand it comes with the territory, but it would help if people could be just a little less demanding and a lot more understanding.
During our lives, we are going to experience good times and bad times, but the bad times should never define or destroy who we are. It is so easy to get discouraged when negative things occur in our lives, but why let the negative times win when we have choices we can make? No matter what we go through in life, there is always a way out or a choice to make that may have a positive outcome. I hope the quote I have shared with you will inspire you and help you to understand bad things may happen, but we can decide if we let them destroy us or make us stronger. I am going to always choose the latter because I do not want to allow anything to destroy my life.
It is kind of funny that I have never met any of the people I work with in person, but have been able to get to know so many of them and make friends with them. Many people have said to me that they think it would be challenging working remotely and not meeting people face to face, but I have become used to it and enjoy it. Working with customers in person is complicated, but working with them through email is a lot more challenging because people seem to think it is easier to be rude and disrespectful. I do not understand this and doubt I ever will. I almost doubt some of these customers would behave the same if we were face to face, but I guess they might behave the same. No matter how much people decide to be nasty and rude, I have learned to just shake my head and pour on the kindness and good customer service I always provide!
Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you are having a good week and never forgetting how amazing you are. I would love to know what you thought about this post and the quote I have shared with you. I will respond to all comments as quickly as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Wednesday is always a good day because it’s “Hump” day. That sounds kind of weird but I guess it means we’ve made it through the worst part of the week and the best is yet to come. The Weekend! Yeah!!
Unfortunately you’re right Alyssa as usual. Bad things happen to all of us. We were never promised a rose garden. I so agree with your choice to never let anything destroy your life. Your favorite saying, “Everything happens for a Reason” has a lot of truth to it. I believe every situation has the possibility of breaking us IF we let it. I also believe we can use every event in our life to strengthen our character and make us better people. The stronger we become the more we are able to help someone else. That’s what life is all about, being there for one another.
Sadly we encounter rude and obnoxious people every day. Someone else’s behavior should never change who we are or how we respond to them. That’s not always easy and when this happens to you your first response is to lash back at them. Take a moment, pause and breathe. Ask yourself, “what is happening is this person’s life that is making them behave this way? This might give you a different perspective and an opportunity to respond in a kind and loving manner. You just might be in this situation to change a person’s life and put a smile on their face. You might have this person think twice next time they choose to be rude to another person. Kindness goes a lot further than rude, insulting, or obnoxious behavior!!
All My Love & Support, Always Mom!!!!!

I so enjoyed my job that weekends weren’t really a bonus. Now that I’m retired I still prefer week days because weekends have structured commitments
