I have decided my little routine will be to write on the train each morning (that or write at 10pm at night watching TV)!
So I’m sitting on the train going back to work - first day back after Christmas holidays. And I should be miserable – it looks like everybody else seems to be wearing extra big frowns
But I am pretty content writing scraps on a piece of paper. (I actually love that there is nobody on the train – I get a whole seat to myself!)
Roll in to work.. (happy new year?how were your holidays?good thanks.you?) flick through emails and get cracking.
And I should be a bit sad – sad that holidays are gone and I won’t get to sleep in for 3 days in a row for a long time.
But instead… I choose to be happy. (or maybe I choose to be content or I choose to be joyful – if you like those words better).
I choose to be happy that:
I get to view the water on the way to work , I have a job that pays me money, I have a great boss, The smell of the wind on the way to work.
You are like a broken recordNow – please don’t get me wrong. I don’t choose to be happy all the time (I would be a broken record of happyhappy). There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under the sun - times to be sad, angry, down, unhappy, etc. (And lets be really honest here) I’m not great around people who are depressed.. I just don’t know what to say because I’ve never had a problem like that.
- When you are waiting in the line and your ipone just died
- When you get an disgruntled customer/client
- When your feel like having a whinge (!)
How does this relate to money/finances?
well it does and it doesn’t but a few ideas…
- try being content with what you have (do you need a new laptop/mobile when you have works fine) or try not to envy what other people have.
- be content where you are (even if all your workmates hate working – does that mean you have to?)
