MAKING IT OUT ALIVE

Your Attitude
Do you ever have those days where you get home, throw your things on the ground and wonder what else could possibly go wrong? Today was one of those days for me. I mean, seriously, could I catch a break?My alarm never went off, so I started my day running around like a chicken with my head cut off to get to work on time. I had just sat down after reading through my laundry list of to-do items when I realized my computer software had crashed, and I wouldn’t be able to access what I needed for the mile-long list of to-dos. Around lunch time (which didn’t consist of lunch since in my rush of a morning I forgot to pack it), I received a lovely phone call from someone complaining that I hadn’t done something they asked me to do, and one co-worker that always seems to get under my skin was really at it today.

Thankfully, I am home now. I can relax.Oh, wait, dinner needs to be made and the dishwasher needs unloaded, and I don’t even want to look at that mound of clothes in the laundry basket that still needs washed and folded. And, after all those not so great words were spoken, it hit me. I am blessed beyond measure.I am blessed to have a job I can get up and go to everyday. I am blessed to have a boss that understands my alarm didn’t go off, and is fine with allowing a little tardiness to slide. I am blessed to have a roof to go home to and collapse under. And, I am MORE than blessed to be married to my best friend (even if he doesn’t know how to cook, clean, or do laundry). Even on my worst days, my life is still better than many people could ever dream of. Life is good… chaotic, but good.

Always count your blessings, not your problems. It is not until you take the time to do that, that you can truly realize how blessed you are.

Don’t ever take life too seriously. None of us make it out alive anyway.
