Be thankful.

I know this is one of the most depressing days of the year for most people. Rightly so! Your just back from a nice long break. You’ve enjoyed having time to yourself, you’ve relaxed, you’ve had time to do things that you wouldn’t ordinarily get to do and you’ve probably spent time with family and friends. Getting back to work is like being smacked across the face with a cold wet fish.

Why though. Why are you feeling depressed and down. Be thankful for the time you’ve had off. Be thankful for the time you’ve had with your family. Be thankful for the time you’ve taken to relax. Be thankful that you have a job to go back to. Be thankful that you have a roof over your head. Be thankful that you have family and friends to visit.

Think of all the things you’ve enjoyed over the past few weeks. Think of the things you wouldn’t be able to do if you didn’t have a job to go back to.

Now, does returning to work seem quite so bad?

I know it’s difficult but take a small moment to smile today. It sounds corny but it’s true. Smile because you have reason to. Smile because in a few hours time you’ll be home again.

This is not one of those feel good posts. It is not a feel posative for the sake of it. It’s a reminder that although we hate to hear it, it could be worse. So, cop yourself on, get your head down, do some good work and be thankful for a change for the life your leading.

  1. Digital, I couldn’t agree with you more at this moment. Ok, I don’t necessarily want to be in work and my first morning has been difficult enough just getting back into it all but right now I have just so much to be thankful for in my life. I am not coming on here to share it all or anything cause I don’t need too. I just know that you are right. The end of 2011 for me or in fact, most of 2011 for me was just so brilliant and I have had the best start to 2012 that I could ever imagine. Now, I will stop waffling and get on with it but as you say, I think its good for us all to be thankful for what we have and not to forget to appreciate it. Personally, if my own life could stay exactly how it is with all the good things that I am able to appreciate at the moment I just would love that.

  2. Horse, your getting very sentimental in your old age. hahahahah. I know what you mean. I’m just taking the pee.

    • Well, I know why you wrote it and stuff but it does all make sense. Yes, you were messing but yes, we should try and have this sort of outlook in general and what I wrote here I am 100% serious about. I should have started by wishing you the happiest of New Year’s but I didn’t so sorry hahaha.
