Does anyone like that type of person who complains, bitches, and find every negative point about everything they can? I personally cannot stand that. And I’ve found myself sucked in to the dark hole of negativity before. 

Every has complaints and wishes something was different, that’s human nature. And it actually a good thing to see how things can be improved. 

But don’t just sit there and complian and bash whatever idea or plan that’s thrown out there. Come up with something better. Wow the crowd. Quit being negative and work towards changing something if it bothers you that much. 

Stop the toxic victim mentality and look at your resources. Now take some action and at least work on bettering your own little bubble. But if your ideas are so magnificent then share then and enact them. 

The world moves forward on improvements. It gets stagnant with complaining and negativity. 

If you aren’t part of the solution, you are part of the problem.

Today is average day. I woke up knowing I had a training class at 9am. There are multiple times a year to go but I picked today.

I woke up, got ready, and hit the road just like any other day. Normally it’s about 35 minute drive to where I needed to but with traffic it’s about 45 minutes to an hour. Plenty of time…

But after I get on the road, it’s a gauntlet of accidents. Left lane blocked, right lane blocked, on and on and on. I can see everyone around me being frustrated in their cars. Vehicles jolting as they hit the brakes, a myriad of travel cups filled with coffee spilling all over the place. I started to see the traffic restrictions and realized it was going to take me well over an hour to make my destination. I started to stress. I hate being late. Then I zoned out or something because some kind of zen came over me.

I got in the slow lane and put my seat back. I decided why rush and still be late when I can just go another day and get more out of it? Then I remembered how hungry I was when I woke up. Next zen moment: I’m taking my lunch break early. A little pleasure of mine is breakfast with coffee in some small diner…

Here I am. Enjoying this no name diner as I write. I’ll work through my would be lunch but I’ll already be full and much more relaxed. I’ll stay later if I need to so I can get done what I need to. And I’ll get to that class before the year is up – it’s only February !

Don’t mistake this day of detours as irresponsible. Sometimes there is no flexing and you have to stay rigid. But know when you can flex. Don’t be afraid to walk off your normal path. You’ll be ok. You might even be better !
