I was dragging this morning bad. It was not a good morning. I even forgot to think my positive morning thought this morning until I was already driving to work. I decided it was “Caffeine is a wondrous thing.” Because I so needed it. I usually don’t have anything to drink before I get to work but today I poured me a bit of Diet Coke to go.
Because I was so tired and I already had some caffeine I forgot to make coffee this morning. The shop foreman walks in for the coffee and asked, “you didn’t make coffee?” I snapped. “No I just got here.” I had only been there five minutes but usually that’s the first thing that gets done. He simply said okay I didn’t realize and left. I immediately felt guilty. As I should because I was being a grumpy butt.
So I made coffee and when he came back I apologized. He laughed it off and was very nice about it.
I don’t mind apologizing when I do something wrong generally. I think apologies are good. Sometimes I apologize and people tell me I am making too much of it. They’re probably right but I obsess a bit about it so I apologize so that they know I am genuinely sorry. Also, selfishly, it makes me feel better.
I think it’s healthy to own your mistakes. Yet I have to be careful because I have guilt issues and I will beat myself up for the smallest things. I’m trying to fix that. This positive blog is a step in fixing it. BUT I do not want to over correct to the point that I don’t apologize when I should. It’s a life lesson I’m working on. Because I can always grow.
After I called myself out for being a grumpy butt I had a great day. No more grumps. That’s an accomplishment. This positive blog thing just might be working for me. 🙂
Hope your day is fabulous.
Find your joy and laissez les bons temps rouler!
I realized I should add that I do not always apologize when I should. Sometimes apologies are hard.
