Hot and sweaty Friday afternoon session. I hardly ever workout on a Friday afternoon but tis the season so i had to fit it in somewhere. You have to do what you have to do. 👊🏻👍🏻🥵

I had a coworker at my last job that literally said, “I guess I’d rather stay in a really toxic, stifling environment than risk the uncertainty of doing something new.”
I was speechless. She made it into a self deprecating joke, the conversation moved on, and chances are she hasn’t even thought about it since. But I have. Constantly. It HAUNTS me.
She is one of the most talented people I’ve ever worked with. She’s smart, tenacious, passionate, and SO. EFFING. CAPABLE.
She sees all the ways doing something new could go wrong. The known paycheck and status she’d be giving up.
I see the amazing, prosperous, fulfilling future she is giving up. The one where she’s living her dream of running her own business, doing things her way, and totally crushing it. Where there’s a wait list to work with her and interns clamor at the opportunity to study under her. It is so available to her, so possible for her.
This is an established concept in cognitive psychology and decision theory called LOSS AVERSION, which is a fancy way of saying people’s fear of loss is significantly greater psychologically than their desire to gain.
It’s fascinating and fun to read the studies on it, until you consider the actual implications of it. Then it’s terrifying. How many people will never pursue their dreams, live their passions, because they’re afraid to lose the known comfort and security of a paycheck from a job that suffocates their soul.
Hell is defined as being visited, on your deathbed, by the person you could have become.
Real..if you ever looked at me & thought how does she have it all together... I don’t!! I’m a working mom, two jobs, three if you count the new department I’m working in. I run around 🧒🏼👦🏻👧🏻, and my daily routine usually consists of getting the kids up, packing lunches, collecting everyone backpacks, water bottles, homework, jackets I mean the list goes on! Drop them off, head to work, work till pick up (two days a week I stay till bedtime aka 8pm) pick the kiddos up, go home do homework, sight words, snack, dinner prepping, cheers wine if I’m not in call!! 🍷 #momjuice Make dinner, watch a show or play Nintendo 64 for a while, bedtime (which is a task in itself!). Then......sigh....exhale and relax! After......I prep mine & the hubs lunches for the next day, possibly still eat dinner, take a shower then it’s time to go to bed 🌚!! #getupdoitalloveragain this is why my sink is over flowing full of dishes, my house is a disaster & my fridge is empty! #isittheweekendyet#walmartgrocerypickup#momsbestfriend what are your go to life saving time managing things that help you get through the week? #shareyourwisdom#momlife#itsallworthit#lifegoesbyinablinkofaneye#kidsgrowuptoofast#mydisheswillbetheretomorrow#mariocartismorefun#twinmom#girlmomlife
Well, I missed the boat on that one...ok, not the boat, but I definitely missed my regular train in to work today! 🙄
Usually this would stress me out. It would make me feel super anxious, mostly because I hate being late for anything!
But today, it couldn’t be helped. We left the house with enough time to get to where we were going, but once I’m out of the house and on the road, so much of what happens next is out of my control!
The highway was jammed, it was raining and the construction all make for a very unpredictable commute.
Normally Fridays aren’t that busy!
Realizing there’s not much I can do about it, I grabbed a hot chocolate, got on the next train and decided to just let. it. go.
I will be able to make up the 20 mins I’m late for work, enjoy a slightly less crowded train and drink my hot chocolate!
My point is - Attitude is entirely up to you. You can take any situation and either
a) find some good in it
b) learn from it
c) find a solution
or d) all of the above!
I hope your Friday goes a bit smoother than mine, but if it isn’t, check your attitude and see if that helps!
Peace, love and cheers to Fridays!
If you need me, I’ll just be over here, casually waiting for Friday night 🍷 #isittheweekendyet

It’s Thursday afternoon friends...which is soooo very close to the weekend, yet still soooo very far away. #lesigh
Headed back to Magnolia this weekend for a few more home decor items before guests arrive for Christmas. 100% positive that my husband is NOT on board with this plan. He is probably 100% aware he will lose this battle.
