When Downhill is Uphill
Tuesday, November 06, 2012
Yesterday, a staff member walked out the door in slow motion, or so it seemed.
After she left, I was exclaiming, "nooooooo" as I realized an important document was left behind.
I had a lot on my plate yesterday (and, in fact today as well - ha ha). I didn't think I could spare the time out of the office as every waking minute was accounted for and paired with a task. But, it had to be done, and I did not have anyone else available who could do it, so off I went. It seemed as if I was transported there in no time. It was a cool, brisk walk.
On the way back though, I realized, drats that is a steep uphill. It was even more annoying that I dropped my fitbit 2 days ago and it is among the missing. It's not in the house; it is somewhere in the world. I do not foresee myself replacing that little number. I huffed and I puffed but I made it back to my desk. It was not without considerable effort though.
Here's something great that came out of this interlude. I CAN DO IT! I DID IT. I AM DOING IT. I see myself from the outside in. I have turned the corner. I am right on the brink of success when I was on my biggest losing streak ever. IT IS BEAUTIFUL! I AM BEAUTIFUL! (WE ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL!)
Take a moment to humor me, sparkies: Tell me something beautiful about yourself. If you are stuck ask me, I will tell you!
HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!
