It only takes a second

Hey Butterflies!  Today was so interesting and scary that it deserves it's own blog!


One of my many jobs includes banquet serving.  Things can be stressful with any job and I understand walking a long distance with 40lbs of hot food can be hectic but I have never seen so much anger and hate in a workplace all my life.  Well, let me change that.  I know it's out there and I can sense bad energy from people but I just stay away from them.  I don't want to see anyone lose their job because I know what it feels like to not have money and how hard it is to find work these days but I had to say something to the temps that was working there.  You never know what someone is going through and just because you are mean, going through something yourself or just need spiritual guidance does not give you the right to be mean and disrespectful to anyone especially someone you don't know.  You never know who you are doing this too.  I'm not sure if this will change anything but hey it doesn't hurt to speak up it only takes a second!


On the way home, I witnessed a man in front of me on a motorcycle get hit but an SUV.  As soon as the light changed, he hit the petal to the metal, went to go right not paying attention and got hit hard.  He and the bike flew and flipped in the air.  I immediately called 911 and pulled over to the middle lane in front of the divide.  Then I had to gather myself.  He didn't move at all I'm not sure if he died or not.  If so, that would make the second time I saw someone get killed in front of me.  So scary!  I hope the man is ok and I have but still even more appreciate waking up everyday and that I'm safe.  You could lose your life at any moment it only takes a second!


I decided to stop at the spa to relax.  A lady walked in to check up on her Mom and handed me a flyer said she just opened her shop next door "Wings 101" a few days ago and that I should stop by.  I told her sure I look forward to it!  After my session, I went over.  It was dinner time and Lemon Pepper Wings sounded good anyway :)  When I walked in her cashier is the first person you see and this heffah not only gave me the once over, it was in super slow motion and she even lean a bit over the counter to get a view of my feet.  This made me feel very uncomfortable!  When the owner saw me her face lit up and she offered me free fries.  I told her she didn't have to do that, first of all I don't need all that starch but she insisted and I didn't want to offend her lol!  When she walked away, I told the cashier "Hey can I tell you something (I was gonna tell her anyway) She just opened a few days ago, and for a new business you want people coming back so you guys can stay open and keep your job.  Your beautiful face is the first thing people see when they walk through those doors and I noticed you gave me a nasty once over.  If I were you I wouldn't do that."  She didn't apologize but she said ok in a very sweet way.  After reading Joel Manby's "Love Works" it really enlightened me about a particular love that should be practiced in the work place.  So I encourage success.  I'm aiming for success so to give a critic on what someone can improve on but also give them a compliment only takes a second!


I'm sitting on my balcony with a glass of wine writing this blog and now all I can think about is how precious life and survival is!


Here is a picture I took right before the car accident.  The pic is kind of small it says "Fear Nothing B Strong"
