Shower thinking today consisted of making changes in my life. I'm going through that phase where if I'm unhappy about something the only person hat can change it, make it better, or fix it..... WAIT FOR IT.... is little old me!
This is so my life!!!
MY BIG DECISION: Start worrying only about Mandy! She is the only one I can control, make better, make a difference with. I also heard a great analogy on the radio today, lets hope I get this right.
"I wish people would learn that talking behind someone's back is like a dog pooping in his crate, (they usually don't because then they would have to sit in it) why would you soil the area you h ave to be for long periods of time?"
For some reason this really spoke to me today. Me complaining about how someone is lying, cheating the system making a bad decision, is soiling my work environment and I CAN change this. I will be honest with you I'm not a gossiper - this is why I can say this - thanks to my mother she taught me to not say anything behind someone's back that you would not or have not already said to someone's face. Any of my complaining is something I have/would say to that person's face and for some silly reason, I have not done anything about it.
Fierce Conversations - link to the amazon listing of this book
It is a book my mother was reading for work and I told her that when she is done with it I want to read it. She has been sharing various parts of it and her discussions they have been having at work and it has intrigued me. So this is going to be part of my summer reading list. It talks about having those hard conversations with people because the end result is MAKING YOUR LIFE EASIER, more productive, and successful. It also questions why you are having these conversations - are you coming from the right place and motive. Oh I cannot wait to read it. If you have read it let me know.
