Stop boo-whooing and make a change!

Hello ladies and gentlemen. Alas, once again, holiday time is upon us. Time to put up the decorations, shop and buy the gifts, wrap the gifts, do the cards, do the cooking/baking (well, not at my house), go to the parties and OH YEAH, continue with the regular part of your life, your job, your family, Jazzercise, etc, etc. I read a card today that said remember as a kid how much you loved Christmas? And you open it up and said Yeah, back when someone else used to shop, wrap, decorate and cook...Right!! Yes, we are all busy, busier than normal during this holiday season.

So let me ask you this question, do you ever get annoyed with those people in your life that continuously complain about how much they have to do? You know the ones, they can't get their work done but they have time to go out with friends (or find a new boyfriend). The ones that have time to online shop but can't possibly find time to make a phone call or send a card. Well, I am here to say that those people need to stop crying about it and get to work. These people might actually get more work done if they shut their pieholes and hunker down. In fact, I would love to start a rule that if you complain about how much you have to do, that you have to actually live the life of a single mother supporting 4 kids by working 3 jobs for JUST one day. Bet most of us (including me) couldn't do is all a matter of perspective and priorities.

Ladies and gentlemen, in this day and age, EVERYONE is busy. There are not enough hours in the day to get everything done, so perhaps, it is time to make a change in life and stop boo-whooing about what you have do to. I literally work four jobs (at the ripe ol' age of almost 40) but do you hear (or read about) me complaining about my work load? I made the choices in my life that got me to this point, so I honestly don't feel like I can complain. The funny thing is that those like the single mother I mentioned before are the ones that complain the least.

I also find that those same people that are "SOOOOOO" busy are the ones that cut people off in traffic, don't hold open doors for people and are generally rude and as my good friend, Smiley, likes to say a crabbypotumus!

If you find that you are one of those people that complains more than getting things done, maybe it is time to evaluate your life and make changes so you do have time and that might just be changing how you approach things. Life is too short to be angry and busy all the time. Lighten up, especially at the holidays, you might actually enjoy a few things. And let's face it, constantly complaining about how busy you are is simply boring and NOT classy.

So ladies AND gentlemen seriously, get over yourselves, lighten up, have a drink, stop complaining and be merry! You never know what Santa will leave you under the tree...I am hoping for a hot, single man and a new car!

Cheers and CIAO BELLAS!
