Days 32-39

This way…I can be done.  You’ll only see one more post from me either tonight or tomorrow.  It depends on how tired I am.

Day 32
Day 32. 8.1.16
I am realizing so much about myself!

Today I was in good spirits despite the disappointments thrown my way. It only proves I’m stronger than I realize. I’m grateful for that.

For whatever reason the Universe likes to play games with me, I’m both glad and grateful I can handle it.

An Audioslave song…called Out of Exile, there’s a line that goes: And the blessings on the table multiply and divide.

It’s a pretty interesting quote.



Day 33 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.
Day 33 8.2.16
I actually remembered to post a blog in WordPress. I’ve been posting in Blogger because it doesn’t get as much traffic as far as visitors. I’ve been a bit more private in the writing field lately…well, except for these challenges, though I don’t know why, because even the challenges I post go unseen. It’s cool though! Some things I write have an acquired taste. Mine might leave a bad taste in others’ mouths.

I wanted to create a portrait to go with the link I provided for my blog. It’s amazing how messing around with shades of black and white can ultimately create an effect you finally like. It almost looks like sun and clouds. I’ll let you interpret it any way you like.

I’m grateful I can mess around in Photoshop. It keeps me busy and occupied…and not always thinking about things like will I have a job tomorrow or not.

I had some bad news, and then it turned around. It was for a job interview. I got an email stating they weren’t interested in someone like me. I replied back with a thanks. And then I got a voicemail later on while at work saying they’d like for me to come in for an interview. I’ll call in the morning. I’m grateful for surprise moments like that!

While I have you here. I changed my blog page from Diana J Poetry to Non-Drinking Musings From a Writer. I’m always told that writers usually have drinking problems. I don’t believe that’s entirely true in this day and age…Poe, Plath…Then again, what do I know? LOL…Either way, I changed my page URL from I figured it was more appropriate.



Day 34 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge, Wednesday 8/3/16.
Day 34 8.3.16
Yesterday was interesting. First, I’ve learned you can make phone calls through Facebook Messenger and it costs you nada. That’s a good thing!

Second, I have an interview on Monday with a place that’s offering full-time with benefits! That’s always a good thing too!

Yesterday at work, I had noticed the 11:11 sign. I didn’t ignore it, I just didn’t think to screenshot it. When I saw the 12:12, I decided to screenshot that one.

And while scrolling through Tumblr (Because Tumblr is like having cookies in a cookie jar; you can’t keep your hands out of it.), I found some quotes that I wrote down.

I’ve come to realize that while I was left in charge with another person, he had taken it upon himself to leave me out of the equation completely, and take charge of everything. I’ve come to realize (Yes, for real this time) that if he wants to maintain that part-time position and be boss, let him! I don’t need that stress or frustration.

Funny how I was the one that trained him, and funny how I have been there a whole lot longer…but none of that matters.

I can’t control what’s out of my control. I must let it go. And for that, I am grateful.



As I finished day 35 of the challenge, I am starting to find it very challenging to find what I’m grateful for. But I am going to do it because I am a very determined being. So let me start off by saying I’m grateful for being determined.
Day 35 8.4.16
I decided a while back to request time off so I can spend it with my grandma. I’m a little annoyed I didn’t get here sooner, but that’s alright. I’m grateful I have transportation to come and visit my grandma when I can.

I think that’s all I have without me sounding like I’m complaining. So let me add I’m grateful I’m able to hold my tongue and keep a secret to my list.



Day 36 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.
Day 36 8.5.16
I have been away and so right now, I can only pray my posts are making it on here. I’ll be back to internet civilization in a little over 12 hours from now. I’m truly, truly grateful for the internet.

Earlier today, I went to the mall and stopped in Victoria’s Secret. They had the body sprays I like two for ten dollars! Hey, I love bragging about bargains! One time I bought jeans and a rain jacket for 40 cents at Old Navy. I’m grateful for bargains.

I’m lasting longer than I thought with this challenge. I’m grateful for that!


Day 37…
Day 37 8.6.16
I’m back home. I’m grateful for that because it was hard to comment or check out anything while running on 3g.

I say I got plenty of exercise while I was gone because there are 32 steps between my grandma’s house to the ground. I’d say I went up and down it a few times. I just wish I could enjoy the rest of the weekend off, but I can’t as I have to work tomorrow. I’m grateful I still have a job.


Day 38…
Day 38 8.7.16
Sun, August 7th, 2016

Today was definitely a trying day as I had gotten home the night before, and work was the absolute last thing on my mind.

I had actually been contemplating what I will tell these people in my upcoming interview in twelve hours from now.

I was willing to work a job–that never cared about me–at night, and continue working the weekends. And then I found several issues from the day before, with a part time boss who is making excuses for people that wouldn’t go to bat for him. And I was just like, if you don’t care, neither do I. It was that very moment I realized if I actually do get this job, I am so putting in my two week’s notice.

I’m grateful for eye-opening moments.

Day 39
Day 39 8.8.16
Well, I went for my interview today. I should find out if I have the job or not by Wednesday.

As far as the other job, I have no words other than to say they confuse me, so much!

Other than the rain soaking me completely, I’d say the interview on my behalf went well. I’m grateful for that. I’m still job hunting though.

I’m grateful I don’t have to be at work until later tomorrow evening! That should give me some time to get other things done! *fingers crossed*
