I hate that statement, but being the person that I am... I'm pretty much the type that lives on the realistic side of things. And when I hear that being applied to something happening directly to me, it kills me to admit that when some else is saying it to me. Truth hurts though, right?
I've been dealing with some issues with work and well I can't really divulge the details openly, its something that I have to deal with better. Even I have to come to the conclusion that I need to learn to deal with it better. I used to wonder when I was younger why so many of the older people would get upset by changes made. Now that I'm in my 30's, I've caught myself being that type of person. The type that gripes about all the new changes, the type that gets caught up in the office politics, the type that is almost always pessimistic and just a plain ol' complainer. I don't want to be that type of person, I like being a team player and the person others can come to if they need help.
Why? I admit there are some people I work with that are very much like this... and maybe I've allowed myself to get caught up in the mix of it. And now it has directly affected me. So from this day forward, I'm going to work on changing it. Again, I am the only one responsible for my actions. Time to be accountable, worry only about me and the job I'm doing... and not worry about others. As I look back on the past 6 months, I can say I probably have not been the best worker... attitude wise. I've made sure to do my job at the best of my ability and follow direction but my attitude about certain things has not been great and I do need to work on that.
I know there are things I cannot control about others around me or how things are handled, but I can control me. So that's what I will be doing going forward. Putting my best foot forward.....
