Holidays seem to bring out the worse in people. It’s a shame really. I think it’s because we put too much pressure on everything and everyone to be perfect, and that’s not going to happen. There’s no such animal as “perfect.” Sometimes “good enough” is all you can hope for, and that’s OK. There’s no need to bring out the nasty side of ourselves. There’s no need to criticize others. It doesn’t make anyone look any better by throwing other people “under the bus.”
This post is and isn’t really about me. So far, I’ve done my best to stay as far away as I can from the negative BS that goes on, but I still see it and it still depresses me. In my personal life, I have a couple of friends that are worried about their jobs this holiday season, because there are people in this world that think that the way to get ahead is to try to get other people fired. WHY? It makes NO sense to me. In my own experiences, I’ve gotten further along on the food chain by building a team around me of confident and competent people who are ALL worthy of promotion. It just makes sense, no matter what your job is, to surround yourself with people who know what the heck they’re doing! I try to do this in my personal life as well. I want people around me who are trying to better themselves and are doing everything they can to make their dreams come true. I want to encourage that. It makes NO sense to drag other people down. I want to feel inspired by those around me.
Maybe I’m just extra tired today and I needed a rant! Take care everyone. Play nice.

That kind of behavior always sucks, but especially around Christmas 😦
Yes, and my friends are wonderful, but silly. One read my post and gave me a coke at work, another brought me a bag of chips. Apparently food heals everything? LOL
