Lazy days

I had the day off work today…slept in until 6 am!!  I was able to spend a little morning time online…well, after I fed Spooky, of course…she comes first (and believe me, she knows it).

After a while, I decided I needed to get ready and run a few errands before the storms hit…which they never did…I went to the gas station and spent more on gas than I spent on groceries for the week…crazy! When I got home, the mowing crew was out mowing in the complex…it needed it…don’t you think the smell of newly mown grass is one of the best scents of the spring and summer months?  I didn’t really do a lot at home today, just the basics…and I don’t care.  I needed a nice, peaceful day.  Work has been not so much fun lately.  We’re undergoing a lot of changes and some people are not handling it well…and their bad mood is contagious…have you ever noticed that?  Someone in a bad mood can bring everyone else down?  I’m trying my best to remain positive and cheerful…but they don’t make it easy.  But…I can’t allow how someone else reacts affect my behavior..have to keep reminding myself of that.  When we allow someone else’s bad attitude to change how we feel and behave, we give them the power to control us…and that’s not what I’m looking for in my life. How about you?  How do you handle negativity at work?  You can’t exactly cut those people out of your life since you work with them every day, right?
