I've had a lot on my mind lately. Been busy babysitting my great niece (I work mostly part time but her mother is single & works 2 jobs so I try to make it easier on her & help out) & I had to buy a new car because some teenage girl was too busy texting to realize she ran a red light. She hit me & totaled my car. Luckily I was okay, not even a scratch but it cost less money for me to just get a new car than to fix my current vehicle.

To make matters worse, my ex-boyfriend sent me a message on facebook showing me photos of his new girlfriend along with a detailed list of what makes her so much better than me. His goal was to try & make me feel unimportant & ugly. Well, I didn't let that bother me because everyone has flaws. You take the good with the bad in a relationship, or leave it! He was also trying to brag about how she has posed naked in various forms of media. Sorry but, I have more pride & modesty about myself than that.

Anyway, he wouldn't leave me alone so I ended up blocking him but all these things have me so distracted that I can't focus to work. I haven't listed or promoted anything in the last few days. I got 2 orders & didn't even notice them until hours later. I don't need this kind of drama preventing me from running my store, I need to stay focused. Anyone have any inspirational or motivational quotes? Or maybe a link to a website with them? I want to find one that "moves" me & look to it any time I need a boost. Gonna try & list some things tonight & get back on track.

I've lost the original quote (came in a Chinese fortune cookie)

"I will not let anyone else control my mood."


The wisdom of age - what a sad snake. How small his world is, if he's got nothing better to do but message an ex-girlfriend. How small his self-worth is, if he's got to depend on the physical appearance of a girlfriend and her accomplishments to obtain some sort of status, to say nothing of depending on her for an ego boost.

Another thought " No matter how bad you think you have it, there really is someone who has it worse." I think back to a friend who lost her job, had her van wrecked and her husband die (from previously undiagnosed heart problems) all in the same month. Practically nothing can come my way that would devastate me more.

True! My problems are not that bad compared to what some others are facing.

But I think we all do lose focus every so often.

I printed this out and posted it to the pinboard above my monitor.

I try to reflect on one every day since there are 30 of them. So like today I would read number 17 because it is the 17th.

From what you describe regarding the EX, it sounds like you are better off without him!
