Dealing with the unexpected

Monday, May 18, 2009

I am so glad I am healthier today than I was a month ago. This morning my car wouldn't start and I had to have it towed to two different repair shops because the first shop was not able to repair the problem. I missed an appointment, then had a bunch of emergency work to get done for my job. Talk about stress! A month ago, all of this happening on a Monday morning would have reduced me to tears and a giant hot fudge sundae for lunch.

Today it reduced me to an exasperated phone call with a friend that ended in laughter and a good workout a few hours later than I had intended and then sitting down and plowing through the work that had come up. All with a positive attitude and the confidence that it wasn't anything I couldn't deal with easily. My energy is still high and my mood is still good.

Yay me!
