Be thankful for what you have and stop bitching about the things you don't have!
Both are statements told to me repeatedly by Billy. I realized last night after I wrote my last post that I was whining instead of being thankful for the opportunities that come my way.
I get sidetracked by the minutia and silliness of this job. I forget I am able to work around others all day long, including my trusty Mickey, and I am busy. I get lost when I start to focus on the small picture and lose sight of the larger, more profound impact this job has had on me.
I am thankful.
This is not to say I will stop complaining. I just wanted to even the score.
