So I was thinking today (as usual, too much) about lots of different things. Chocolate, vodka (haha, some people say I have a problem) thumbnails… wishing I didn’t lose half of mine in a horrible work-place accident… ew… ow? Yes, ow.
Also, as far as work goes, today really sucked.
Anyway, I was also thinking about what other people say about one another. Why? Because I had two super interesting things happen in regards to someone talking about me. I analyze this a lot, it’s interesting what one says to someone and what they say about you to someone else, and how they can sometimes differ.
Well, I’ll start with the negativo. I overheard somebody talking about me the other day and it wasn’t entirely flattering. I had a bad day at work, I wasn’t feeling good, I fumbled and I was slow. According to this person’s wry view of his surroundings I was standing around and talking and not getting anything done and everyone else was working and I was slacking off and blah blah blah. I say “blah” because I’m fairly sure the person he was talking to was only hearing just that, “blah blah blah”. He made it seem as if that’s my work performance every day. Well, I didn’t take it to heart, because he talks smack of a lot of people and you know what? I don’t care. Still something for my mind to analyze (as it does with EVERYTHING.)
Now here is one I do care about. A positive. My sister read my blog and what I wrote about her story, and she liked it, so she wrote about me writing about her, lol. It was rather interesting, particularly the contrast in the negative and positive and I just really enjoyed her blog!
Moral of the story? Let the positives affect you, and shrug off the negatives. Life will be a lot smoother that way.
