January 22, 2007

Well, this morning I was greeted with another tid bit of information about January. Today, the fourth Monday in January is known as, Blue Monday. More people are suppose to be depressed than any other day. This because people come to realize how much debt they are in, that they have already failed at their New Year's Resolutions and a few other reasons.
Isn't it interesting how many statistics there are for random days. When's the happiest day of the year for most people? How many people have stuck to their New Year's resolutions? This is the type of information that I'd like to know.
Let's talk about success... not failure. Let's talk happiness, not sadness. Let's change our mindsets, waking up in the morning and being happy that with each new morning, comes a new opportunity to strive towards your goals. Each day will bring the potential for greatness and surprises.
Each day may seem insignificant, but add them up and they equal months and years... and at the end of each new year- I'd say most people will say that a lot has changed. Each seemingly insignificant daily choice will add up to your life in a nutshell.
So, this is what I am trying to do. Better myself, push forward and try to make daily decisions that will add up to one great outcome.

So, yesterday I was listening to the radio as I was driving to work and as I parked the last thing the radio commentator said was."If you're going to die this year, your chances of dying in January are the highest". To which I turned my car off.
I found this statement to be odd and it kind of stuck with me all day- somewhat bothering me and wishing it wasn't the last comment I heard before starting my day off.
Well, I didn't die, which is FANTASTIC.... but my day did continue in an odd fashion. I had a really hard time getting anything done at work. I couldn't stop staring at the other girl in my office who I found out is now sleeping with the same man I had.(but, I'm not opening that bag of worms!!!)
So, I decide to go get something to eat. While deciding... I make a last minute decision to visit my good pal BEE and grab a burrito. Well, while getting off the freeway ramp- a hot police officer gets behind me... no big deal, I've done nothing wrong. Oh, wait, I did- I really don't remember doing this, but I guess I made a right hand turn on a "No Turn on Red" intersection.
Well, that's great, I can't go to traffic school because I've been within the last 18 months and the ticket will be about $271.
Okay, bright side... the ticket won't come in the mail for 4-6 weeks... so, I don't have to worry about paying it for 8-12 weeks!
Well, long story short, I decide to take an "AIRobics" class with my friend "Jewel's". Totally fun and extremely exhausting trampoline class(on HUGE trampoline's) at this new venue in the area. Now, I'm on crutches with a sprained ankle and more loose floor mats in my apartment than I had previously noticed!!!
Funny how perspective changes when you have a damaged limb.
Nice thing, I still have all my limbs- no amputations, lots of ice and a steady supply of advil... God is definitely good to me.
I'm just hoping that today goes a little smoother then yesterday!

This has been an interesting end and beginning of two years I am bound to remember. In 2006, I took the leap off the train of virginity... got my feelings hurt, broke my heart, reclaimed my dignity and started a new and very volatile job.
In the first 10 days of 2007, I was told by my manager that my job was in jeopardy. I had less then one month to bring in ALOT of money... my feelings and heart have begun to pull themselves back together. And, today, I sit with my job not 100% secure, but 95% secure... I'll find out today after I talk to my manager.
What does this go to show?
Well, it goes to show one or a few of the following things...
(A) I am one lucky bastard!!!
(B) I have some of the most supportive and motivating friends and family EVER!!!!
(D) I work very hard
(E) God is definitely always looking out for me
(F) You never know what the next day will bring
(G) I am SUPER LUCKY!!!!!
