Battles Uphill And Downhill In A Day, But Leveling Out At The End
We all have new challenges everyday, week, or month. Life can get hard and frustrating, but we need to take the challenge and stay open minded or we will lose before it even begins. I started today a little rough, had an ongoing challenge, and finished the day in a good mood. I want you to finished your day happy. Here is my day and how I overcame obstacles.
Failure to Get Connected
I have had problems for three days with my WIFI. I had it for about three years and keep it busy. The first day I was not sure it was the WIFI so I did some troubleshooting and eliminated everything besides WIFI. I made my mind up the next day, which was a Sunday, I was getting a new router.
I live in the middle of no where and my phone carrier provides my DSL. They do not set-up your network for you, but will help you over the phone. They need to provide the format for the router I was installing. Since it was a Sunday no one was there. I had to wait till today, Monday, to contact them. I worked till 3 PM and they closed at 4 PM. I had a friend call to get the WIFI to connect to the internet. They got that accomplished by 11 AM. I had to work with the WIFI so it would recognize all devices on the network. Everything is working great now no problems. It feels great to accomplish a set goal and overcome a challenge. It ended a challenging day pretty good.
Problems At Work
The beginning of a new week is never the best thing when going to work. When I walked in and my manager told me I had to clean, white glove check clean, I was a little down. Do not get me wrong I do not dislike cleaning, I just do not like high expectations. This job was for a inspection and I definitely have never like them.
I set my routine for cleaning. I got rid of what was not necessary, threw away anything that needed discarded, whipped down tables and equipment to remove any excess debris or dust, and then used foam alcohol to clean the tables and debris as well as get any residual debris. It took two and a half hours to get everything done, but felt good at the end.
Struggling With Complicated Job
Well after everything was done my boss gave me a job. I did this job before, but is has been almost a year. It is also a touchy job. I cannot talk about much, but let’s say it is like a recipe that you cannot adjust the temperature of the oven, change ingredients, or put the recipe together anyway you want just the way it calls for. I do testing and this job needed done a certain way and it kept messing up. I finally caught the knack, but did not get much done.
Day Is Over And I Am Happy
Even though I have had problems today and over the weekend I am pretty happy. After dinner today I went outside and I saw the sunset. It made me think of a poem I learned when I was a kid. I was inspired by that sunset to write this blog to let you know that not everyday is a perfect day, we all have struggles, but the day comes to a close and God is there for you, He is always there.
by Emily Dickinson
I’ll tell you how the sun rose,–
A ribbon at a time.
The steeples swam in amethyst,
The news like squirrels ran.
The hills untied their bonnets,
The bobolinks begun.
Then I said softly to myself,
“That must have been the sun!”
But how he set, I know not.
There seemed a purple stile
Which little yellow boys and girls
Were climbing all the while
Till when they reached the other side,
A dominie in gray
Put gently up the evening bars,
And led the flock away.
