This week I've read a couple of phrases a number of times in different places - life begins at the end of your comfort zone and something along the lines of remember the small things in life because one day you'll realise they're the big things.
So I wonder which, if either, of these things are true? It doesn't really seem as though they're compatible. Either way they both seem to be giving us a positive message but they really point to the idea that we're focused on the wrong things. They're both explanobrags, and that kind of thing is what I've been seeing all around me this week. the idea that someone is explaining something to me, but what's really happening is bragging about something they've done but I haven't.
As I've said before, I'm happy with how things are shaping up, that's not to be confused with a lack of ambition, knowledge or awareness of other things. Due to this, over the past few weeks (remember the gossip?) I've noticed that certain people seem to be mistaking my easy going nature as weakness.
For a little while I've just ignored what's going on as it doesn't matter one jot, but I've noticed that at the shop someone is not necessarily trying to bully me, but they're certainly trying to undermine me to boost themselves. Boost themselves where and to what end I have no clue whatsoever, I don't think I can be undermined as I'm just a till widget with no opinion or power either way, but there you have it. I'm choosing to find it charming and amusing, I can handle it because I just don't care, but it's kind of sweet that I'm a perceived threat (am I eating too many chocolate digestives?). Should I see it happen against anyone else, I can assure you I will not be slow to act.
