Coloured view of the world...

Everything is only as good as you perceive it to be at any one given time.

Some days everything can seem rosy and happy and other days it can seem dismal and concerning, yet nothing has changed except for the date, oh and how I look at things of course.

Today was one of those days where I got on my high horse, worried about a few too many things and generally felt miserable as a result. All of this worry and stress always leads back to a common theme. I let others words and behaviour influence how I feel.

Now onto things that have a potential to make me smile -

My furkid has demon blood today. She's suddenly decided that the pond weed from the fish pond is fun to drag out of the pond and put all over the back verandah. Arrrggghhh! I guess the positive in this is that she's not yet grabbing the goldfish out of the pond. I draw the line at that one.

I'm reading Brenda's latest novel to be released called 'Skewered Halo' in preparation for her online blogging party tomorrow, or is is the day after. Depends which country you're in I guess. I better make sure I have my days correct. I read 167 pages in one sitting because 1) I read quickly and 2) It's a good storyline.

We sold the car yesterday, that's 1 down and 1 more to go. We might soon resemble a 'normal' family with only as many cars as we have drivers instead of resembling a car yard. That is until hubby finds another few cars to purchase. Although now he's on the subject of stationary motors again and is off to a field day next weekend. Can't wait!

I'm sussing out job advertisements to get a feel for what is out there. I'm fighting that feeling that perhaps I need to be spreading my wings, the thought that I may not be utilising my full ability is niggling in the back of my mind. Okay it's slapping me in the back of the head, not just niggling.

I think the problem stems from having moved up the ranks in a company that you've been with for quite a length of time and having a bit of a 'coloured' view of everything. That and a boss who says that I have rose-coloured glasses on regarding managers fulfilling their responsibilities.

It's hard to fight my belief that if a manager is paid damn good money to do a job then he / she should be doing it. I think it's almost time for fresh and new and exciting, and a company which is a little bit more progressive in its thinking. No drastic moves at this stage but I'm open to possibilities for sure.

So as always, tomorrow is another day and my perception on life is anything I make it. Hope you've had a positive weekend.

Cheers, Fi

  1. Congrats on the sale of the car. I am glad my husband doesnt have a car obsession. Sorry you are having a rough go at work. It will all work out how it is suppose to. That naggling though probably won't go away, that is your intuition which always wins out. I ran across this website and this particular post that I started reading. Great stuff. Hope you have a good start to the week.

    1. Jenn - nice link, I've added it to my regular read list. I need to give up every one of those 15 things
