Song of the Day-Joanna, Tip Toe


TGIF-Pedi Time!

We made it!! I’m not sure why I’m so excited? I work this weekend. Oh well! I do love my job, so that’s a good thing. Though I admit, tonight was an ass kicker!

I came home and went through my usual routine. I take my dog out and look at my social media for a bit, then a nice soak in Epsom salt bubble bath and pjs. Oh, then I work on my blog while laying comfortably in my bed.

While soaking, I got a good look at my feet. Not good! I have yet to get a Summer pedi. Being on my feet as much as I am, you can imagine the ugly before me!

Yes! Brace yourself! Sometime this weekend, I’m going in and treat myself to a pedi. I’m ready! Past ready really. Time for pretty Summer toes! Time to sit back and let someone pamper me, even if it’s just for a little while. I’m gonna slip them an extra $5.00 to massage my legs a bit longer than usual. Shhh! Don’t tell anyone!

When it’s Time to not be Nice

Early I posted about the importance of communicating anger in a constructive manner. There are circumstances however, when letting loose on someone is essential.

Let’s face it some people are just passing through as lessons in our worlds. Some are there just to test you. And this world has its fair share of assholes. I don’t look at this as a rant though. A rant is communicating thoughts and feelings even if angry. No this is different than ranting. This is standing up for yourself and saying kiss my ass. Be nice until it’s time to not be nice!

The Constructive Rant

I know there was a time, I bit my tongue to spare other’s feelings. At the expense of my own. Think about that a minute. Why allow anger to poison us? Isn’t it better to get it out? Yes!!

Here’s the thing though. It’s about the how and when. It’s never a good idea to let loose when anger is at the wheel. It will not be a productive rant. It will come off more like bitching. It’s best to wait until cooler heads prevail.

What about the how? Well, I wouldn’t use words such as you. It’s like pointing the finger and immediately will put the other person on the defense. The words, I feel is a better way to express your said issue.

I no longer hold my displeasure in. I remember the turning point for me. While I was going through cancer. I felt like I already was dealing with something poisoning me, I would not allow anything else to do so. It’s very unhealthy to allow anger to build. What ends up happening is an explosion that will result in casualties.
