When I decided to start this I was a little hesitant.
In fact someone asked me ‘How often are you going to update your blog?’ and my immediate response was, ‘once a day!’.
I saw quickly the error of my thinking.
As easy as some artistic challenges are meant to be, a Blog -which is what I decided was going to be my launching pad- is something that requires substantial effort, and thought, and time.
My perspective has been changing and I think a healthy perspective is vital to a good life. So I don’t feel right having only one post about perspective, and have a boring story about my run-in with law enforcement be it. I should talk about my perspective shift over the last year or two has affected my life, or how to change yours.
Brief recent relevant history time.
I remember in my previous life, my retail life, perspective was…complicated. You had your own sure. Quantifying your perspective is the first step towards happiness imho. But where do you start in Retail to find your perspective. How you/your boss sees your department or what you’re selling and how its perceived. But juggle that on top of the day to day work load, and Goooood Luck.
I seriously remember a specific instance I called a manager friend of mine, and seriously asked him, ‘What can I do about people spreading rumors or saying shit about me behind my back‘ and I remember expecting him to point me towards some corporate policy or procedure.
Laugh it up.
Maybe there was a reason some people referred to me as wet behind the ears.
I look back and I join you in laughing at myself. The only thing that can be done is to prove them wrong. To not take no for an answer. To be the best walking-talking-Mother-Fucker alive and to act like it. I’ve learned some since that phone call..
I got mad today at work today.
I allowed myself to get mad I think is the best way to put it.
In comparison to how silly calling someone to ask how to stop rumor-mongering, the thing I got mad about today is equally silly.
You control how you perceive everything that happens to you. You construct your own boundaries. If you stay inside them because they are safe and you’re not ready to move past them, that’s OKAY! But..
Nothing GREAT happens inside our comfort zones.
I’m ready to move past my boundaries.
