The Highs + Lows

The past week has been rough, guys. Without going into too much detail, having your coworkers (and boss) constantly slander you (and your family) behind your back isn't cool. Things have gone downhill ever since my dad passed away. His replacement doesn't care about the well-being of the company and he definitely doesn't care about his employees. I feel like we are stuck between a rock and a hard place right now. But, that's life. I'm trusting God to handle the whole situation because, honestly, I'm not sure what I should do at this point. We have been praying about the whole thing and praying for him for a long time now.

After all of that, I'd really like to focus on all of the highs this week since what I just shared above was obviously a low. I need to remember that no matter how bad things may seem, there's always something to be thankful for. Am I right?


+ I'm finally over that awful cold that I had been battling the past couple weeks, thank God. I've been feelin' good lately.

+ Getting pizza from our favorite little pizzeria, Cristino's, on our way home from work on Sunday evening. Sundays are normally our cheat days and, boy, was it worth every calorie after pulling a hard 12 hour shift.

+ Having a chance to catch up with my good friend, Victoria, throughout the week. We don't get to see each other very often, so being able to work with her is always a treat. She certainly helps keep me sane when I feel like pulling my hair out.

+ Getting together with a few of my Target coworkers on Tuesday afternoon. I'm 100% convinced that wine, good food and laughter are good for the soul. If it weren't for the people that I work with, I would have bowed out from retail a long time ago.

+ Finding out that we have a lot more work opportunities heading our way in the next 2 months. Some may consider that a low, especially since we've been busy enough as it is, but I couldn't be happier. We'll finally be able to pay some things off!

+ Stocking up on Bath & Body Works fall scented candles. Just FYI, vanilla chai and bourbon butterscotch smell aaa-mazing.


+ The whole work situation that I opened this post with. Yeah, that has had me pretty stressed out for the last few days, but I'm throwing my hands up. Like I mentioned before, God has total control over the whole thing.

+ Feeling like I should be so much farther in life than I am right now. I know I shouldn't compare my life to the lives of others around me, but sometimes that's hard to do and it makes me feel like I'm not measuring up in certain areas.

+ Not being able to go to the gym in 2 weeks! We were doing so well, but after working 6AM-6PM everyday, G and I just didn't have the strength (or motivation) to get our butts down there. I feel like a total bum!

+ Letting fear creep in after hearing about all that's going on in the world at the moment (the Ebola outbreak, everything that's happening in the middle-east and even here in the United States). I need to keep my focus on God instead of being frightened.

At least my highs outnumbered my lows! That's always a good thing.

  1. Oh gosh, that work situation sounds so difficult. I'm sorry you're having to deal with that, but I'm glad your trying to give as much of it to the Lord as you can. He will handle it for you, sweet friend!

    I hope you have a great week! Thanks so much for linking up!
