I woke up yesterday morning already running late. I rushed my shower, getting ready and ate half my breakfast while running out the door. Then I felt better as I pulled into the parking structure 10 minutes before needing to be at work.
I got to work and got rolled over with frustration almost at the get-go. Darn callouts. Darn people not dealing with it that should. Then I took a deep breath, put on my smiling face, and made things happen.
While this may seem like the ebb and flow of a normal day (and pretty much is), I felt it bringing me down more than it should and I decided that I was going to stop it. As I was walking to Starbucks to get my coffee, I made the best decision I could have made for my day:
I’m gonna own today and not let it own me.
I came back from grabbing coffee for myself and breakfast for my manager, geared up and went out to run the floor so she could take a break. I felt amazing! I felt like I could take on the world in that moment!
She tried to come back early; I sent her away. I was in my zone; I was feeling good; I had this.
As the day progressed and I felt other things poking at me, I reminded myself of this and turned it around. It was amazing and quite the breakthrough.
The next time you’re having a rough day, tell yourself I’m gonna own today and not let it own me. I bet you’ll instantly start to feel better.
