I think I had a small victory today. A tiny victory in the eyes of most people I bet, but for me it was great. I addressed a situation head-on. Instead of just accepting the blame for a change or minimising my frustration at a situation, I addressed it, and you know what? It didn’t turn out as bad as I thought. Even though it took me a lot longer than I would like to work up the nerve to do it, I did it. Looking back on it now, it was such a small thing, but my mind (playing through every bad scenario it could) made me get more than a little stressed.
So yeah, minor victory and some of you may well be thinking “yup, what was the big deal?” If you believe that then I am happy for you. You are in a place I eventually want to get to. A place where everyday issues are just that. Small bumps in the road that you pass without hardly a thought.
At least today, I made a forward step for a change.
Apart from that, the day was pretty uneventful. Busy and a little frustrating but nothing out of the ordinary. I could insert the usual Monday anecdote here but I won’t. Don’t suppose I need to and besides, every day feels like a Monday slog to me.
It is about time for me to switch off for the day. Maybe sleep a little more soundly tonight. Who knows?
