I’m going to use this word because of my job.
Most of y’all know I do security at a nursing home/retiring center in St.Pete Fl. It’s sad to watch the resident’s memory’s fade away and when that happens, they are all put on the 2nd floor in the midrise building which is not a bad area. Just easy to watch them.
It’s even sadder when you have a conversation with them and they don’t remember your name even though they say it every time when you see them. Or when you patrolling the property and you notice a resident walking to the dining room and it’s close. They always say that I was late or lost track of time but you know deep down inside you know they didn’t remember eating 3 to 4 hours ago because you were the one who took them home earlier.
When I think of it. It makes me sad but the residents don’t let that slow them down. They still have fun playing cards games that they relearn every day, they still talk to you even though they going to forget less than 2 or 3 minutes, they still tell you old stories from the old days like the 40s or 30s and etc which is cool.
One thing I can say that I also learn from them. Even when your memories are fading away doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your life and I like that about them because they always fill with life.
I Hope you’re having a great Friday morning so far and if you have to work I wish you a fast shift and I also wish you a good day!
I was always taught to be independent in life, my grandparents always told me only you can take care of yourself. Yeah, you’ll meet and find somebody in the future but always remember to take care of yourself just in case your life hit a wall.
And they were right, my life hit a couple of walls when I couldn’t turn to no one for help but I always came on top because of the tough love for independence.
They’re going to be sometimes when a wall blocks our paths. Never be scared of that tiny wall. We go through stuff every day but still wake up to fight the same battle over and over and over again. But one day you’ll win that battle because you realize it’s only you holding yourself back and nobody else.
And when you do win that battle, be proud of yourself and prepare yourself for the next one because there is always something around the corner.
I do hope you enjoy your day with some good food/fireworks and Happy 4th!!!!
As I sit here and enjoy this rainy weather at the gatehouse.
Thinking about life while it storms like crazy.
A couple of lightning strikes but they’re pretty cool to look at.
This photo describes my day because I’m in a gloomy mood now but relax at the same time.
Ready to go home to enjoy my videos games or sit back and relax while I’m playing a movie.
3 more hours until I can go home and rest and I hope you can too if you working.
Random blog post, hope you enjoy.
I believe it’s good to be exposed to different things in life. On my trip to Va, I saw a lot of different things that we don’t do in Florida but that was the cool part. Learning new stuff in a different state was always cool. The water felt different there, The weather was different, The rain was different and even the heat felt different.
I also enjoy being exposed to different types of food around in my city. Most people always go to the same place which is okay. I’ll just guess you enjoy eating there but I enjoy watching my friends snap chat and seeing all the food they eat by places I never been before. I message them and ask what location you at and whenever I’ve time I’ll go there to try the food myself or with my best friend. Speaking of my best friend we suppose to be going to smoky bbq place and I never been there but It shall be fun.
Never be scared to be exposed to different things in life. Whenever you’ve time, take a trip to your city like downtown for an example. I’m sure there are a lot of stores I never have seen downtown and I live here for 25 years well almost. I’m sure it’s the same for you. There so many areas in our city or state that we never visit and you should change that.
Exposure is good, don’t let anyone say anything different about it. Today seems like a very hot day but I’m doing gate duty with a/c so I consider myself lucky lol but I hope you have a good day!
Many of us always rage throughout the day and we never notice it because we do it all the time.
Take time to yourself and see what make you rage less than a second.
If you were able to find this problem of yours, try your best to fix it because only you have the power to.
Since I’m a gamer, only one or two things can make us rage and that probably a laggy game or when the game has glitches everywhere and the GM refuses to fix it. Or if the game is broken or either pay to win. I’m sure there more for gamers but that’s just an example.
Try not to rage and if you ever feel like you need to just chill. Life to short to be mad at something when it doesn’t even matter.
I hope we all didn’t rage today and I wish you a good evening.
Emphatically eh? nice word to use and I’m sure we can all relate to it.
I dislike when I witness people always trying to force stuff on people. Like a relationship, friendship, religion and many more.
Never allow someone to force something on you. You’re your own person and shouldhttps://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2018/06/30/emphatically/ be able to live your life freely. Quit looking for people to Validate your life and always know the people in your circle so you can avoid certain things like that.
People have done the same with me and I stop them right in their tracks when I notice they tried to force certain things I wasn’t cool with down my throat. Sometimes you just have to let people know. If you say nothing, they will keep trying and be trying like no tomorrow and that sucks. You don’t need that negatively in your life.
Don’t allow people to get in your spirit and tell you something that you can’t do and if you enjoy something? connect to it. Today been gloomy all day and it also been raining nonstop. That means work is going to be busy or slow but I hope it’s slow today. I wish you a good day and I hope you’re having better weather than me.
I dislike when people don’t understand directions when I’m doing gate duty at my job. I’ll give them the easiest way to find something on the property but they somehow go the wrong way.
I’ll sit there and watch them on the security camera shaking my head but I am laughing at the same time once they realized they made a mistake.
But that’s the point, they made a mistake but didn’t bother to turn around and ask me for directions again. It just tells me that they learn that quickly.
Or how an annoying co-worker almost got the team in trouble by drinking all the maintenance guys sodas. Like how stupid can you be? like they weren’t going to find out the next morning but luckily my boss told me only him will get in troubled but that was still dumb of him. And speaking of my job I’ve to train someone Sunday morning… this going to be annoying lol.
It seems like I’ve allotted of writing to do, been quite busy lately but I believe my life is in chill mode. Today has been gloomy so far and I couldn’t take my daughter to the park because of the rain but hopefully, the sun comes out besides that I hope you’re having a good day!
So I made it to Virginia safely. Long train trip but it was all worth it.
I left Tampa Fl around 5:30pm on Thursday and didn’t arrive until 1:30 on Friday. Had like an hour delay which sucks lol. But I still made it.
It was nice seeing old faces again and family members who I never met before. All of my family wasn’t there but we still had a lot of people that travel far from Florida, Georgia, Newyork, Boston, Texas, North Carolina and Nebraska. I’m sure it’s more states but that all I know for now.
Below you will see four photos of my trip that look good to me. The rest is videos but sadly it won’t let me post lol but it’s cool.
Today we had a fish fry and it was good. I got 2nds like I always do and I didn’t even care. also had too much alcohol, my Hilton room is great, different from Florida if you ask me or the ones I did security at.
If you on vacation I hope you’re having fun and if you not? I suggest you go. Always have fun in your life. I’m happy that I made the choice to come. If not I’ll probably be playing videos games in my man cave and reading. I also was on the phone getting check on by my best friend so don’t mind the time on the top.
I hope you had an amazing day and I wish you a good night.
Nice word to use today and I only saying that because of my trip that starts tomorrow.
I hope everything goes as plan tomorrow. I’m taking a 19 to 20-hour train trip to Richmond Virginia.
I’m attending a family reunion. We usually don’t have them this far north but they decided to try something new this year. We do have family in VA, so I believe that’s the only reason we going there But I do wonder what state we will visit in 2022. We try to have a reunion every 2 years which is cool in my books.
It’ll be my first time in Virginia and besides spending time with family, I’ll also try to explore the city that I’ll be in. I also have 5 hours to kill before I even have to meet my family at the Hilton. But either way, I still going to the Hilton to drop off my stuff.
You should always try to visit new areas that you never saw before. I didn’t even think I was going on this trip because I receive the informative late which was my fault but hey I got it and I’m glad I’m going.
Seems like it’s going to be a gloomy day today, good thing I’m doing guard duty in the gatehouse and I also wish you a good day.
I’ve been so busy lately I forgot to post this couple of days ago but recently I’ve reached 100 followers.
So I wanted to say Thank You for all the love and support. I didn’t think I’d have taken this seriously when I created this blog last year but I’m happy that I did this year.
I’ll continue to write and I also enjoy reading everyone blogs when I can.
I wish everyone a good day.
