We all know them; the person who just sucks the energy right out of us. Today, I feel like one of those persons. I feel like everything that comes out of my mouth is negative. But maybe it's just because I'm thinking so many negative thoughts. The rental agency handling our home in Idaho wants us to fix this and that and OH! There was a nail left above the front door. We don't seem to be on the same page as our caseworker...or maybe it's because I'm emailing him rather than calling. Or there's the fact that I gave my employer over a two month notice (my last day is the 16th) and they still haven't posted my position. Whatever it is, I feel like I'm focusing on all the bad and missing all the good things that are happening. My yard is starting to green again (turns out, when I turned the water on for the sprinklers, I didn't turn it all the way). I've got a kid who loves to earn money and therefore takes care of the weeds. I'm moving in a month to a new experience that I'm so excited for. So many good things....yet, I'm focused on the fact that the yard work is never done and there are still boxes to be packed and how on earth will I get my house spic n span before we set off. If there's a positive person out there, I need ya now. I need emails about that will make me laugh. I need to see smiles. I need someone to redirect me without me feeling like a stink bug. Anybody up for the job?
