This is my empowerment song of the morning: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5e_i4l4sBv8.
Yesterday, was a crazy day. First off, I was just exhausted come the morning. I had some head pressure in the base of my neck, down my spine, a raw throat, and some fluid in my ears. The only thing I could think of is to roll back over and sleep it off. I got up, got moving, and took some appropriate medicine that helped huge.
Then, I got an email from an ex of mine. It was really kind of pathetic. I sent a very assertive response back but, not bitchy. I asked after the fact if I was out of line. Well, I also told Nomad about the interaction. It would eventually affect him in a possible social setting and the last thing I want is that to be awkward. I sent him an email explaining it. Past is past but, when you are trying to build a future it helps keeping things honest. The song I left you with is in reference to this situation. (ON THAT NOTE: Don’t send someone an email to ‘get in touch’ given that you might be seeing someone more often…it comes off like you are avoiding a confrontation
I worked on a big project all day. 80% of my day was spent with this one project only to realize in the last hour that I had written it up wrong not just once, but 4 times!?!?!?! I sent the documents off to our vendor confirming it and HA….poor vendor! So I looked like a royal dumb ass….when it was brought to my attention the 3rd time, I adjusted it and sent it off….then the 4th time I fell dramatically, upon sounding the “Eff my life” call thru the office, in kind of a laugh/cry mode. Kind of collapsed to the lobby ground. Tears were streaming as I was laughing at the luck of the day! How nuts is that?! Then Herb called twice looking for me…that is all I will say about that one.
As I was clocking out and running off to help mom, I still had a smile on my face. I might have just had a mini-meltdown but, I wasn’t going to let that defeat me. Keep on pushing little engine….keep on pushing on thru….
Just as I was finishing up at work I get a frantic call from my mom…poor thing. I had typed out a Track schedule earlier with all the dates and practice times. Well the schedule at school changed and they couldn’t hold practice. So my mom and I ran over to the track to catch people and send them home. A lot of them were OK with it. My mom felt horrible. I found out later that she too had a pretty crazy terrible day!
I came home after that and slept then Nomad texted me. “Do you want to talk about your day? Are you still stressed?” (me) “A little bit but it’s ok. I don’t want to damper yours at all.” (Nomad) “Nonsense…we are here to saddle each other’s toil.” (me melting at this point) “hmmmm…” (Nomad) “? We are here to hear each other.” (me) ” Thanks doll. 🙂 You are a good team player!” (Nomad) “:) Your welcome” Then, when I was done getting ready for me I called him.
Then I sat and created a post followed by a sound, VERY SOUND, sleep. Sometimes it takes a circus day thrown in there to make you appreciate the calmness in our own lives. It makes me savor the moments to which I can sit in silence and hear nothing. I just zone out. I needed to have 5 minutes of that yesterday…but, if I need to slow down today that is exactly my course of action.
Here is a good song to end on…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXrFBsYKrgE.
PS: perfect end to the night is run/walking 5 miles with Katherine (using mile markers as food items…pancakes, waffles, coffee….etc) then proceeding to go to IHOP! All is well in the Universe!
