I’ve been feeling a little zonked lately. I’ve got some sort of cold thing going on and it won’t let up, I’m feeling like a little of my personal shine has been less bright and happy, that I’m not a special snowflake, and my recent knee injury has me in some pain and bummed out in other ways too.
Blah blah blah blah.
I was throwing myself a heck of a pity party last week when I went home at lunch and slept for 3 hours. I had some tea out of my owl mug and mentally reframed what I was feeling. I told myself to get the hell over myself. I’m not a Hostess employee and am losing my job, I don’t live in Israel where I might be in danger, I certainly have most of my health, I haven’t recently lost someone close to me, and others shining too doesn’t take away from what I’m capable of doing.
I scolded myself with the following, “I have friends and family who love me. I have a job I like well enough and they like me. I have time, talent and treasures to be shared. That’s more than many can say. Get the hell over it Courtney.”
I will. I always do.
So until I can use my knee all the way again, feel like I have a little bit of my special snow flake shine back and am less stuffed up? Here enjoy this.
