Today’s challenge….ending the blog challenge.
I’m sorry, I’m never one who likes to quit and not finish what I start, but I just can’t do these daily blog posts like I thought I could. I think a large part is that it takes away the purpose of my blog, which is to share what I want, when I want to. Sometimes I like to share, or vent, or journal and I don’t want to feel constricted because I have to do a daily post on a certain topic.
So, no more daily challenges. I hope none of you who read this are too sad about this.
However, with that being said, I do have a personal challenge to take on, and that is how to ignore things around you that you really cannot change. Actually, ignore isn’t the exact right word. Ignoring is part of it, but also dealing with it, and persevering through it, so as not to let it bring you down or make you unhappy with yourself. I can’t go into too much specific detail here, but this is something I am struggling with in an aspect of my every day life.
I’m someone who likes to do the best work possible, and I admit, I have a low tolerance for stupid people and people who do not work hard. Maybe that’s harsh or maybe that’s honest, I’ll let you be the judge, but since I am a very very detail-oriented person, who follows rules and policies to the best of my ability, and does accurate work, it’s not hard to believe that I am that way. Basically, If I was a quote in this aspect of my life, I’d be “If you can’t do it right and/or accurate, don’t do it at all.”
So, how do I overcome this challenge. How do I deal with others who do not feel the way I feel? How do I get through the day calmly and happily? That is what I need to figure out, so that is my next challenge.
Usually, I search for quotes to start to change the way I think.
I’ve never been good at pretending something does not bother me when it does. I don’t hide things well, which makes me the expressive, emotional person that I am, and I love that about myself. But at times, it’s a blessing and a curse because I have a difficult time just “brushing it off”. So, I really don’t know what I’m going to do every day to help myself get through. I’m thankful for the people in my life that I can vent to and who will always let me open up to them about what’s bothering me, but I also don’t want to “poison the air” with negative, complaining conversations all the time. So, I’m at a standstill.
Guess I might just simply have to follow this advice:
