I took a short walk in my neighborhood today, all the while dodging the little gifts the geese had left on the sidewalk. Weaving and bobbing and trying to avoid those stinky, gooey bombs.
It got me to thinking that it is a little like dodging the bombs in our everyday life.
Avoiding the co-worker that for some reason just gets on our nerves.
Steering clear of the boss knowing that they are going to ask you 'how are things going' and you might just have to tell them.
Or maybe avoiding your pal that is rocking their exercise program, and you just don't want to admit AGAIN that you are not doing ANY type of exercise right now.
It sometimes amazes me at the end of the day how much bobbing and weaving I actually did. It WEARS me out.
I need to address this issue because if not, I will continue to end each day exhausted and just plain stressed out. This week I am going to work on my attitude. I am going to remember the positives that can happen with every interaction instead of focusing on the negative. And if some little bombs hit me along the way, I need to accept them, deal with them, and then move on to the rest of the day.
How do you avoid the bombs in your life? Do you go way out of your way so as not to have to deal with them or do you face them head on?
Note...my plan is to face my bombs during the day but I still plan to avoid the goose droppings.
Until next time...
Keep on Creating.
