#1025 the pucker factor

Happy 4th quarter, friends! I love the last three months of the year. Fall, the holidays, the sports - it's great!

Today at work I was having a conversation with one of my co-workers about how it's easy to get complacent. It can happen with your relationships, with work, even with yourself, I think. Once you get complacent, you lose that little something that causes you to have a little fear or something, that little something that causes a certain part of your anatomy to pucker up, if you know what I mean.

For example, at work, pretty much every day I go in with a little touch of fear - the pucker - and I frequently wonder when my boss is going to catch on to the fact that I am just not all that. That feeling keeps me working as hard as I can. It's only at the end of the day that I will think, "OK, they got their money's worth out of me today" or sometimes I even think, "They got a bargain today because I kicked ass." But in the morning, the pucker factor is in full effect.

I think the same is true in relationships. Sometimes I feel a like I take my relationship with MT for granted. Sometimes I think that he is lucky to have me, and I don't put as much effort or kindness into our relationship as it deserves, as he deserves. But there are plenty of other times that I take a look at myself and I think, "Why did MT choose me? What does he see in me that makes him stay?" That's when the pucker factor comes into play and I try to be more kind and thoughtful in my relationship.

That's all I've got to say tonight. Pucker up peeps!!

Wise words and so true. We should all think about what we have and treasure it (I'm talking about relationships) but also if you love your job to do the best you can.

Your post made me stop and think and that's a good thing!

Take care and hugs and kisses, puss och kram to you all
