Day 8

I have worked at my current job for 19 1/2 years. In those years, we have never closed our office to outside customers. We have closed our office for meetings or appointments, but never due to something like a virus. Today, we have closed our office to all outside customers. We can do most things on the phone or through email. And people can drop payments off through our drop box. But, until this thing is gone, we are making sure we are keeping us and our families safe.

If we go on lock down, I will be bringing my computer, monitors, printer and some files home with me to do what I need to do from home. I will forward the phones to my cell phone and will take messages for my boss to take care of when people want to talk to him. We will make it work. But, the best part about my job is... we will work. We will be here for our customers and continue to do what needs to be done on a daily basis. 

Just a Monday reminder for you... Soak that piece of goodness in... #lookforthegood


The kiddo has gone to her dad's for the week. They are working from home, so they are helping out with her during this time away from school. She still has to do her homework, so I told her to send me a picture daily to post on my blog. This is what I got today. I love it. She makes my heart happy. And man, do I miss her already!

Today, Jon Gordon shared a newsletter in my email. The part I liked was: 
The truth is, this isn't going to be easy. The truth is, our leaders are going to have to make difficult decisions in the near future to save lives and save the economy. The truth is, we can't control the events in our life, but we can control how we respond. The truth is, we will get through this. We all know a physical virus can be dangerous, but so can an idea virus. Let's respond to the fear, negative thoughts, panic and uncertainly with positive contagious energy. Positive energy is contagious too.

Speaking of Jon Gordon. He has a daily email he sends out about being positive. Here is today's email he sent: 

It’s easy to be positive when everything is going great. Real optimism, faith and leadership are revealed in how you respond to adversity.

Today let's:
1. Stay positive.
2. Be thankful.
3. Choose faith over fear.
4. Replace "Have to" with "Get To."
5. Encourage others.
6. Use this time to learn, improve and grow.
