#MotivationalMonday – Attitude

Standard

Yesterday and over the weeks, so many incidences made me have a re-think about people and situations and as much as I try not to compare them, when you see a pattern – it is easy to tell if there’s change coming or we are in for a long horrible ride with that person.

Bad attitude sucks!

Granted, no one particularly likes being scolded or corrected. But like our on-point manual and Book of Life says, “God corrects those He loves” and in another place, “Godly sorrow leads to repentance.”

Yes, I know some people have taken the duty of criticizing everything you do. But when what is being complained about is done by other people too, then you really need to Stop, Listen, Sieve and get to work; on YOURSELF!

These days when I hear certain complaints, I take the exercise myself. Other times, I simply just feel the check in me immediately and I rearrange or ask different buddies for their opinions and then I easily see a ‘Repeat’ suggestion which I follow.

• Stop
• Listen
• Sieve
• Work
• Intentionally become the New You.

Sometimes, people don’t change. So, you work on you!

#Writer’s Quote Wednesday on a Thursday

Standard

Colleen is back and I’m glad. I missed her but not so much because you could feel her touch oozing through Ronovan’s pore with his own dexterity. Great team I must say!

Well I read her #WQW for this week and I smiled because it was simple and straight to the point and I totally loved it. A great quote, I felt like I wrote it as Yescheilyah Ysrayl told the truth about the intricacies of writing.

Writer's Quote Wednesday_251115

I thought of using someone’s quote yesterday but decided to write mine and here’s my thought on this one. Rather than act without giving thoughts to what you want to do, my call is to thoroughly think it through (back and forth if you must, run it by some trusted brains – this doesn’t mean you have to accept their suggestions though) and then take a stand. If we do this often, we won’t open our mouths in foolishness, let our anger escape seamlessly and remain imprinted in someone’s memory making our remembrance in their heart a pain. All I’m saying dear writer…put yourself in their shoes, walk around a bit, come back return it to them and walk in yours, then let it all out (filtered sometimes and I’m smiling cos I need to do this too).

I wonder what Colleen has to say about this today?

Tuesday Thoughts

Standard

I’m concerned…truly by the level of outright disrespect being flung about. And I’m thinking, maybe I am over-reacting, so I decided to check out the word RESPECT and the dictionary gives me many definitions and I chose the one that relates to what I’m dealing with

“an attitude of deference, admiration, or esteem; regard”

Consequently, to be without respect is to not have regard for the person you are dealing with or take their feelings into consideration – in other words, they mean NOTHING to you and I shudder more.
