[Classic post from 1-11-13]
All I can think of to share tonight is a bit about my emotional rollercoaster of a day today. I promise to be brief.
It began early this morning responding to a friend’s email and giving love and encouragement, and I shared this quote above with him as well. That was a great start. Then I got some computer work done for a few hours
Just after noon, I was in a meeting briefly that was not my idea of a good time, and since it was not set up by me, I just went with it. It gave me concern and I didn’t feel good, but in my typical trooper-life fashion, I decided to do my best to let it go and move my emotions step by step to a higher place where I could just let go of it completely.
That wasn’t working so well, but I wasn’t giving up.
Then another afternoon meeting that was good and I was quiet through most of it with my partner doing the talking. He’s good at that. But, it appeared to be coming to an end without covering what I thought was the most important issue, so I chimed in. I was probably a bit intense. (My passion for what I do mostly). But, I knew that early part of the day was working on me.
Then evening came. I decided to share my thoughts about how I felt earlier and that went well, though it was emotional too. Then, from out of the blue I got some most encouraging words from someone who has not been supportive for a long time. I almost cried. It was so special and was exactly what I needed. It was a very simple phrase: “We’ll get through this. . .”
Wow. Another Great Day In Paradise . . .
