The week has just started, and already I’m done!
This is not my usual type of post, this is more like a rant, because of the shhhhhaving cream that’s been thrown at me these last couple days. I need a release and also, a gentle reminder that ‘this’ . . . whatever ‘this’ is, is not the end. Not even by a long shot.
Let me explain.
On Friday, I did a report (one I didn’t have to do), I could have let this report slip but me in my infinite wisdom, took it upon myself to get the information needed for said report.
After my email was sent, a reply was sent to all attached claiming that my report was not factual, inaccurate, and should be withdrawn.
I mean, don’t get me wrong, if I’m wrong and I need to go get my facts straightened out, fine! I have no problem admitting I’m wrong or that the information I got was incorrect.
But to say someone is not factual, is calling that someone a liar. And if I am a liar, why do you keep asking me for updates and such?!
A statement like that damages a persons’ integrity and character. And now that’s all I can think about . . . what do people think of me now?!
Thanks . . . to that lovely soul who questioned my integrity, your job is now complete! You get bonus points 😉
So of course, today, this morning, I’m all on edge.
I’m a recluse, I can’t help it. I prefer the confines of my 20ft high by 4ft thick wall. But today, it feels like my wall aint high enough or thick enough, and every body and dem mumma knows it.
I’m not gonna lie, I’m feeling vulnerable, and not so confident with this job. All because of one person, and their lack of tact.
So while I was on Twitter, I was gently (really gently . . . with more tact than a thumbtack – makes no sense I know :/) that people will say and do whatever they feel like, how I respond to it makes all the difference.

How true is that?! As long as I keep hitting that replay button, things will always hurt me. So stop pressing that damn replay button Char! The replay button is ONLY for the fun stuff, like that trip to the beach last Sunday . . . yeah, that is replayable material 🙂
I also have to remind myself, that we all have shitty days, don’t we?! More often than not! So just recognize that you’re having a shitty day/week/month, and let it go. Though I have to admit, letting go of negative feelings, and experiences is not that easy, but it’s worth it, right?!
Stay strong, be positive. We all struggle sometimes.

And for the rest of you, because my month is not so great now, I wish, hope, and pray that you guys have a much better week than I’m having right now!
Be blessed loves!!!
