Topic: Fixer Upper

In less than a week the current round of Arcade ends!  You still have a chance to play the DRD gacha machine, as well as many other great ones.  This set, I was kind of stuck trying to figure out how I wanted to photograph it.  It is amazing.

I don’t know how many of you have had the privilege to go around looking to buy your first home in your lifetime,  but there is always a reason those homes are on the market. One of the reasons could be, because it is foreclosed.  Many homes today need lots and lots of fixing.  They are total fixer uppers!

This can relate to even matters of employment and actual people, (including ourselves).   If you’ve ever entered a job and it was perfect (that is just wonderful, lucky you)!  If you’ve ever entered one, in which needed lots of fixing my advice would be to turn around as fast as you can.  Run!

Realistically though, it may be hard to do.  Especially when you have been accustomed to being a fixer of things and growing up ahead of your time.  Growing up and having to sacrifice childhood and become a parent or guardian of your loved ones. Whether if it was a parent, a child, a sibling, a friend.  You do what you have to do in order to fix  or alleviate situations.  You learn to deal with it!  All of it and keep going!

This can also relate to matters of employment.  You go for it!  You don’t run, because you figured that you just might enjoy and think it is worth investing your time in. Most times you are motivated by your heart, friendship, and not for any financial gains or opportunity.  Like the saying goes, “you will never work a day in your life, if you love what you do.” 

Even when you are inexperienced and not wanted, you try your best to be a part of it.  To please, to fix, and work hard.  You do the best you can under many unfortunate circumstances and attitudes.  You sometimes give more than you get back in return.  Your expectations may not always be what you once thought or expected.  It isn’t reciprocated.

I am just simply trying to make a point about the correlations that occur within different scenarios and similarities.  Your first encounter to this infrastructure, is frightening and alarming.  There are old and rusty, busted pipes.  The weathered roof is falling apart, the paint is chipping away and worn out.  The house may have even been haunted  years prior to your arrival.  Many lost souls still linger or are gone.

Well friends, same kind of encounters may apply within a workplace environment.  Your very first encounter with already set cliques and egos can be hard to deal with no matter how many times you turn the other cheek.  Disagreements, discord, were present before you were hired or even entered.  Lots and lots of unfinished business is all that is left. People are already set in their ways.  Being the new person on the block, some may treat you as an outsider, or just make you feel like you are doing something wrong (despite your significant efforts).  There comes a time when you feel like you don’t belong or disrespected.  You then run and leave!  Some may feel challenged and aren’t very welcoming.  You were probably set out and discarded.

Same thing applies when trying to settle into your new home.  You become the go to person and if it is a fixer upper, you try and fix the things that are broken.  You try and change all of the blown out light-bulbs with bright energy efficient ones.  If you’ve watched those DIY home shows, it takes a lot of money, work, tolerance, and patience to restore.  You will have to find an inspector so you will know what things need to be fixed and codes need to pass in order for the dwelling to be habitable and you need to comply. Since I have gone on and on I will end here by just sharing a simple message.

Everything in life is fixable.  It starts with ourselves and we have to learn to let go of the past and what was once broken.  EVERYONE is responsible for their own actions.  It is okay to listen to a friend, an employer, but there comes a time you have to draw the line, or else they may blow out your light too.  It is ultimately their own issues that have gotten in the way and they have to face and fix them on their OWN accord.  Reparations and improvements are always possible.  No one is perfect.

Have a wonderful Sunday everybody! 🙂

You can’t fix and build something, if you don’t fix yourselves first.

Keep your heads up and don’t forget to visit and play the DRD machine at the Arcade today!
