Quote of the Week!

 

Quote of the week 16 Oct.JPG

We do our best to begin our day on the right foot. We begin with a cup of coffee, our favorite breakfast, or an inspirational prayer or mantra. Anything to ensure our day starts off with positive energy and happy thoughts. Only to have it ruined by a comment or act from a coworker or boss, and then in our mind the day is ruined. After this negative interaction are you left with a preverbal chip on your shoulder or attitude that you can’t shake for the rest of the day?

Well don’t be beat yourself up about it, but don’t let those feelings linger either. Feelings and emotions left ignored often build up and lead to emotional fits of rage and anger.  You have to learn how not to give that much power to thoughts, actions or emotions that are not your own.  It’s ok to take responsibility for the emotions you feel as a result of other people actions. However; remember that no one can make YOU feel anything.   The emotions you feel are often a reaction or a response to what was said to you. So don’t take it personal. We are all different, and come from different backgrounds so what bothers you may not bother or upset someone else. We all face criticism or unwarranted negative feedback, but don’t let it ruin your mood for the entire day or week.  So stay positive and do your best to not give your control away!

 

 

 

Happy Friday the 13th ?

giphy Friday the 13th.gif

Today is Friday the 13th.  A superstitious person would consider it the unluckiest day of the year.  It happens when the 13th day of the month happens to fall on a Friday. This occurrence happens once or twice a year. The history surrounding the origin of this day is unclear since there isn’t one specific event connected to it.  Listed below are just a few incidents that may have contributed to the myth surrounding this day.

In the New Testament 13 people were present for The Last Supper, the day before Jesus Christ’s crucifixion on Good Friday.

Triskaidekaphobia is fear of the number 13, and an avoidance to use it. Fear of the date Friday the 13th is called paraskevidekatriaphobia or friggatriskaidekaphobia. Due to the superstition surrounding the number 13 many hotels and buildings leave out the number all together.

The Knights Templar were arrested by Phillip IV and tortured in France in 1307 on Friday the 13th.

The number 13 has been linked to the practice of witchcraft. 13 is the exact number of witches required to form a coven.

Lucky for you today is the last Friday the 13th of the year. The first was January 13. There will be two Friday the 13ths per year until 2020. So mark your calendars, and good luck!
