Why hello there. It’s quite nice to see you. It’s been awhile since we’ve had a chance to have a hot morning beverage. What’s in your cup? I just have regular coffee today with some almond milk and 2 sugars. On weekends, I’ve been using coconut creamer which is delightful, but I don’t bring it to work with me. Maybe next week.
So what’s been going on with you?
As D’Lovely would say, I’ve been holding a lot in my heart and only recently have been able to let go of some of it. Of course all of it was out of my control, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t weigh on me all the same.
Part of it is now behind us, my dear friend is recovering from her surgery, my brother’s dog loves being with us (best I can tell), I’ve given some of the work worries to G-d and put it out of my mind for now, and I’ve made the executive decision to stop worrying.
Stop worrying? Me? Yes. Me.
When I start to worry, I just tell myself again (and again and sometimes again) that it’ll be okay. If that doesn’t work? I say a prayer. I pray for the best possible outcome, kindness to the people who need it, guidance in doing the right thing, and to be shown the good in what’s going on. You know, try and put a positive spin on it.
I don’t know that I’m actually talking to G-d or a collective subconscious or myself, but it feels like I’m doing something proactive rather than just stressing myself out about things.
Are you a worrier? How do you get past it?
Sometimes when I’m having a tough go of it, I ask friends for distractions. Recently, BatGirl sent me this one. It’s a keeper.
Anything good going on this weekend? I might have to work at the pool more than I’d like tonight and tomorrow, but I’m going to try and get a nap one of these days! Brody doesn’t like it when I nap, but sometimes if he can sleep next to me, he’ll let me get away with it. If it’s not terribly cold on Sunday (long shot, I know) then I’ll take Brody to the doggie park to run around and lose more tennis balls. I might also bake a bit. I don’t know just yet.
I do know that I have to run and get a refill on this hot beverage! It’s chilly around here and I went through it quickly!
