Do DOOO do-do-do…

Does anyone else remember that song from the Muppet Show?

Work was super busy today but it’s exciting.  A lot of cool things are happening and coming up on the horizon.  It’s going to be great.

As a result of my attitude presentations, I have been approached to form and lead a group of people who are seeking ongoing stress management tips.  Kind of like a support group.  I would facilitate and answer questions, but the purpose of the group would be a safe place where we could meet and help each other with real situations in a friendly non confrontational environment.  *Squee*

Where the hell did this new Shonda come from?  I’m still baffled.  Just for the hell of it I went back through just this blog and I shake my head at how discouraged and unsure of myself I have been at times.  I can see where I was trying to talk myself out of being in a funk but sometimes it was useless.  I really have come a long way.  I am proud of myself, even if no one else says it I can say it to myself.

Robert Irvine is so weird.  I am hooked on Restaurant Impossible and I love how he goes in and gets all bossy.  Hahaha!  Insomnia is a mother tonight.

My little puny motivated brain won’t settle down… I am thinking of ways I can help at work and I am excited about it but very nervous.  Change is not always well accepted by everyone.  Hell, look at me, I am as stubborn as they come.  I can relate to being reluctant to make a change.  “Who, me?  you must be crazy; there is nothing wrong with the way I am doing things”… It’s a lot of people’s mantras.

As you can imagine, my next challenge will be getting the “nonbelievers” to buy in.  Gah I sound like I’m forming a cult.  Seriously, though, it will be tough to get people on board if they are so engrained in their own funk.  I hold out hope that something I say or something they encounter will flip the switch.  I talk about it being a baby-steps approach and it’s completely true.  You can’t be an ass all the time and then walk into the building doing the Oprah happy dance.  People may whisk you off to the funny farm.  But small gradual improvements and changes are easy.  That’s why they all it Continuous Improvement.

Ugh when did I become a grown up?
