    Finish the sentence.

    For me, by writing a draft letter of resignation in anticipation of a possible job change.
    When the day comes that I publish it to the Boss, I'll copy it here.
    Not letting him ruin my day today.

    By getting up and getting moving as much as I wanted to stay in bed and be lazy. And I paid up to rent a locker at the gym for six months so I will be locked in to coming.

    By smiling all day, no matter what the boss said to do.
    It drives him crazy trying to figure out why he is not getting under my skin.

    By feeding my dear old MIL lunch at the nursing home, then heading to my happy place if it doesn't rain, and by happy place, I mean the range to blast some big holes with JMB's wonderful creation.

    Remembering that any day you wake up is a good day.

    And praying. Because there are things that I cannot control.

    I accepted comments and criticism of my resume' that I submitted for a job that I didn't get an interview for.

    These comments were hard to take coming from the man who called me a poison to the organization, but I accepted and will be trying to take what I can from it.

    From what I understand interracial (black/white) is pretty popular in Asian countries.

    Realizing that today I'm 8 days from heading back to the US.

    When my son sent a text saying he declined any invite from his boss to go to a concert, I replied "if you were female you would have a sexual harassment law suit."
    That made him laugh. And that made me smile.

    Today I remained positive by 'accidentally' exposing my carry gun to a couple of twentysomethings wearing Bernie Sanders shirts in Zaxbys as I sat down for lunch.
    They stared at me for the next half hour.
    I smiled at them for the next half hour.

    Most excellent, sir.
    Sadly, they didn't realise they were safer because you were there.

    Even though Ive been up since 2 am with an extremely sore tooth, and I will be at the dentists office when he opens the door, I shall remain positive today knowing that, at some point, I will be picking up a shiny, new CZ from my LGS

    Even though I had two incidents at work (two kids who were screaming in the halls etc), I stay positive by thinking, "I dealt with two jerks today, but 74 other WONDERFUL kids" (though, the number is higher, only counting students in my class currently)

    I write a gratitude list most days. That, with daily prayer and spiritual readings helps.
