It's that time again! Finish This Sentence Friday. Today's sentence: I deserve a medal for the time I...
Hmmm. That's a really tough sentence to finish. I've never committed an act of heroism or saved a life or anything like it. But, for the sake of writing this blog post, here are a few things that popped off the top of my head.
1. I deserve a medal every time I get off the phone with Tricare and I resist the urge to either beat my head against the desk and/or break the telephone. Seriously, who else wants to hulk-out after they've had a conversation with their health insurance?
2. I deserve a medal every time my kids throw up on me, and I don't reciprocate the action. It hasn't happened a lot, but it has happened, and I have never thrown up on them in return.
3. I deserve a medal every time someone asks me to do something for them and I don't say no. I just have no ability to say no to people. Really, though, it's more of a strict sense of responsibility. I don't know why, but I just feel like I have to help when someone asks me to do something. I wasn't voted most dependable for nothing. Now, that's not to say that I will do the things people ask of me without grumbling and complaining.
Ok, so those three things are meant to be kind of funny and light-hearted. I honestly can't think of a specific medal worthy situation. But, I would say that I have a personality trait that is medal worthy. For me, can't is not an option. You might say I have a "can do" attitude. You really don't want to be the person telling me something can't be done. Just ask Casey.
Nothing annoys me like a laundry list of reasons why something can't be accomplished. I just don't want to hear it. Do not tell me why something can't be done, tell me how it can be done, because there is always a way. Always. This country was built on loopholes, remember? But, seriously, where would this world be if everyone threw up their hands in defeat each time they are faced with a challenge?
