Keeping My Head
Thursday, November 08, 2012
Today was a little rough. Not only did work feel like it was lasting forever (I'm used to a high-pressure, high-responsibility job but my current position is low level and I do my work much faster than my predecessor leading to a lot of time trying to figure out some way to keep myself busy) but I had a bit of a family situation occur. It was far from an emergency, but it put me into an absolute funk. On a typical day, I would have declared it a "who cares?!" night and gorged on some fast food and chosen not to work. Instead, I kept my head and while we did go out for some fast food, I chose small portions and even got myself to get on my exercise bike.
It's funny how much writing helps me think, which helps me to keep from sabotaging myself quite so easily as I might otherwise. The family situation isn't resolved just yet, but I'm feeling better about it. And my waistline won't suffer immensely because of it.
