Positively Optimistic Day #54- Stopping to Smell the Roses

“I don’t have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness – it’s right in front of me if I’m paying attention and practicing gratitude.”- Brene Brown

Today wasn’t the best day ever. I had a horribly mean lady at work today that complained about me and talked down to me like a peasant even though I was extremely nice and did all I could for her, I got harassed by what looked like a 40 year old guy who kept repeating “Do you know my friend Johnny?” and kept telling me I should date his friend who was right by him, other people got cut from work the time they were supposed to but my manager had me stay an hour over on just the floor (not including all the other stuff I had to get done), and had to deal with other mean people and many obstacles.

I was already tired because the night before I couldn’t sleep and only got 2 hours of it and then all this happened, and you can imagine I’m exhausted. I’m currently laying down on my bed writing this trying not to fall asleep.

What I wanted to share with you all today since I’ve had a crappy day is that even when you have the worst things happen to you when you get a moment to reflect just think of the positive things that did come from it. I may have gotten a witch lady but by her hurting my feelings my coworkers saw that and helped me get through it. There were so many that took time from what they needed to work on to help me out and for that I am so grateful!

I also had some good guests. Not many today haha but a few and that also makes me feel grateful. So even though I had really crappy situations happen to me today I still had good things happen too and that’s what I’m going to remember. I’m just going to stop and smell the roses as some would put it. Just appreciate the good little things life offers.

Speaking of which this is completely random but there has been bag pipe music coming from my neighbors outside for at least the last 15 minutes. Which made me chuckle inside because I was relieved to be home to have some silence. However; I just find it funny and I think it sounds cool. So instead of viewing it like a bad thing I’m going to view it as little thing I will appreciate today. It feels like it fits perfectly into my crazy life and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

So I’m going to end this blog here because I’m like drifting so hard guys haha but like always I’m going to dare you all. I dare you through all the chaos of our lives to just learn to appreciate the things around you. No matter how little or in my case weird like bag pipe music blasted in a suburb of America. Just take it all in and smell those roses.

Talk to you all tomorrow,

Amber ❤️❤️❤️
