Posted in Question of the Week?


So the other day I was at a local store standing in line waiting to pay for a few items.  There was a woman in front of me and when it was her turn she politely greeted the cashier and asked him how was his day going.  The cashier was so taken by the woman’s greeting that he thanked her for being so kind and told her that it really meant alot to him that she was so polite.  He went on to say how it is so difficult to work in retail because there are times when people are extremely rude and you can’t say anything to them because you have to be nice to them at all times.  I interjected by saying that I completely understand having worked in retail for several years and yes people can be very rude for no particular reason.  The woman then said that she has worked in the bio-medical field for 20 years and it’s no different, in fact it seems as though the more letters that someone has behind their name the worse they are.  I agreed with her whole heartedly.  Why do some people suddenly get a sense of superiority when they get one or more college degrees?

I would really love to read your thoughts about this.

 As always LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE!

Self Talk

How do you talk to yourself?  What is your internal dialogue, negative or positive?  If you are talking to yourself negatively the majority of the time then it will be very difficult to have a positive outlook about anything in your life.  If you put “garbage in” you will get “garbage out”.  Instead of the internal negative playlist, gradually begin to replace the negative with positive.  It will be difficult at first, but the only way to make progress and not fail is to try.  Choose one negative thing that you say about yourself and every time you think it or say it, immediately replace that thought with a positive.  It will take time and you will have to practice this exercise daily.

Come on let’s try it together!  Here’s one, “It’s going to be a bad day.”  Replace that with, “Today is going to be a wonderful day.”  You can do this, I know you can!
