An exercise in frustration that ends on a good note...
Wednesday, June 26, 2013
It's been a bit of a frustrating day- after I got a phone call from a school-recruitment firm that tried to recruit me for programs I don't care to do, and then sent my name out to schools with a program I am not going to ever consider taking, so that I've been getting phone calls all day long- I literally got 6 phone calls in a 25 minute period. To say I am angry about that would be an understatement.
I know there were 6 phone calls during a 25 minute period because I was trying to complete a session of centering prayer at the time. I think it was the worst session of centering prayer that has ever occurred bar none. I guess that's why it's called a 'practice'- cause you need to practice to figure out how to do it.
But the day improved exponentially when I remembered that I had a committee meeting at church tonight, and it was fantastic. Then on the ride home one of the other committee members invited me out for coffee on Thursday. I'm so excited! I checked my email when I got home and found emails confirming a lunch with another friend in 2 weeks, and an email from a friend in Illinois I had been thinking about. So today is ending in a very happy manner.
More stress relief today with the evening meeting, my short walk (1.3 miles thanks to the rain) and the emails from my friends. I'm so pleased today is over and I can rest. I know I'm feeling better when I feel sleepy around 10PM- I sleep better and wake better and just FEEL better.
This is a Good Thing.
