Another Lovely Day

Monday, April 21, 2014

77 degrees today. Never thought I'd say that in April after such a horrible winter. Back to the 50's tomorrow but I'm still happy with that. DD had the car all day today until 3 PM so I walked further than I normally do and it felt good. She will have it all day tomorrow too, plus her evening class, so I'm really on my own tomorrow. I will miss her evening class when classes end next week for her. It has been my little "me time" when she is gone in the evening. I can watch a John Wayne movie and not have anyone complain. Or just sit and read. Or play my old Prince music loud and dance around the house. Yup I can do whatever I want (until 7PM when DH comes home that is).

The big meeting is tomorrow morning. I don't care anymore. I have too much to worry about with my program and I truly want to be successful with my program. So I will try to behave myself tomorrow at the meeting. Nod my head at the right moments and hold my tongue. Because, truly, does it really matter? No. But me staying on program and getting healthy - that matters more to me. TKRV has inspired me to start thinking about adding some spiritual lessons into my program too. Soon. Once I figure out what it is I need. I think I need something that will help ground me and keep me focused on what really matters instead of letting small things bug me so much.

    There's nothing like workplace difficulties for getting under one's skin. I do hope the meeting went smoothly and that you got through it without anything being taken away from you - hopefully with things going much better than you expected.

    Peace matters and it isn't achieved through the body. Sad but true.

You know the story of the person scared to perform on stage being advised to look at the audience as though they were all naked, right?

When you are in the meeting imagine everyone in the room no matter what is said or not said, done or not done, as your most favorite BFF. If done properly and consistently you will come out the victor and so will everyone else.

    You are right not to fret about the meeting, but it's ok to care. I am going through similar conflict at my work with a slacker office assistant who gets by putting in as little effort as possible, dodging responsibility and constantly directing blame to others. I also have a "show down" sort of meeting tomorrow. I am determined not to take it personally, but just to stay with the angle that we need to do what's best for the kids and what makes the workplace more efficient. I won't let it be about a power struggle. I am not sure a meeting will resolve anything, and am hoping that if she won't get with the program she will just leave instead of continuing to make everyone crazy. At any rate, I wish you some resolution at your meeting, and hope for the same at mine. But more important than what happens with these other people, is that we stay true to ourselves and our own values. Best wishes that it all works out!
