My Best Worst Example…

It’s hard to maintain a positive attitude when it seems that people are just chomping at the bit to see how quickly you’ll revert to your old ways. I’m by no means perfect, but it isn’t likely that I have been on the deserving end of some of the criticism I’ve endured over the past few weeks. It got me to thinking, who is the best example of the worst person I’ve ever had to deal with on a regular basis?

Sadly, I’ve had no shortage of candidates lately. But if I had to pick one, it would be the person(who shall remain nameless for now)who most frequently approaches me as though I’m a twelve year-old child and attempts to make me feel inadequate because I am not a mind reader. She knows who she is and it really isn’t necessary to throw her under the bus to make my point…though it would be quite satisfying. The point is that I’ve worked for and with many people who made it their life mission to point out what others aren’t doing well enough to suit them. I’ve often wondered what it would take to make them focus less on what others are unable to do and more on what their own shortcomings might be. I’ve wondered, but no answers have ever materialized.

Rona Shively is trying to turn her life around. She’s got big changes ahead in Book 5 and I hope you’ll hang in there with her as she starts turning her life around. It’s often easy to enjoy reading about the faults and misgivings of someone like Rona because it helps us remember that no matter how bad we are, there’s always someone out there who is worse even if they are a fictional character. Rona has been my best worst example for several years now of what a single, self-sufficient woman can be if she gets too hung up on what she believes others think of her. With my own newly regained freedom and an attitude of gratitude, I’m hoping to bring her around to my way of thinking and empower her just a little as the series continues. I’ll keep you posted as I get closer to finishing this next book.

Until next time…

  1. I stumbled across your blog and am so excited to have found it. I was wondering where to go to order the first book? I noticed it was available on Kindle and was wondering if it was also available for the Nook? This entry really made me look at myself. One of my biggest faults is not realizing the potential in others. I have my own way of doing things and sometimes I have a very hard time letting go when others don't follow suit. There are day where I am that worst example…..I'm trying to be better and worry about my own self, so at least it's a small step in the right direction.

  2. I think every person has their "best worst example", they just have to reflect on themselves to find it out. You are not human if you have no flaws, that's the only thing I'm putting in my mind.
