Frustration and Focus

I saw a sign on Pinterest and it said “There are over 7 billion people on the planet, are you going to let 1 person ruin your day?”

And I thought, wow, that’s pretty powerful.

But today, I let one person @ poor customer service ruin my day. It was really the straw that broke the camel’s back for this company. Normally, I’ll let the amount of good customer service I’ve had greatly out weigh the one or two bad experiences I’ve had, but I couldn’t get the frustration out of my head. The more I thought about it, the more pissed off I got. The less I thought about it, the more it created a mosh pit in my head.

What I should have focused on was the following: my dad became my hero on Friday night when he gave me $500. That was much needed. I’m able to hold my head above water until the 15th. I did my taxes today and I’ve got over $700 coming to me. That puts a dent into one of my credit cards. I’m getting $100 for concert tickets that I bought back in November back this week. That money will be put toward the deposit for my annual Key West trip. For the first time since I’ve returned from Australia, I finally feel okay about money.

I haven’t felt that way since…well, never.

So…as I sit here and listen to the Wings vs Blues game, I am trying to like hell to take that frustration and focus on the fact that I actually may be credit card debt free by June.

HOLY SHIT! That would be awesome.
