I need to let go of the things I have no control over
Thursday, January 31, 2013
I didn't sleep well last night. I fell asleep, but didn't stay asleep.
I'm worried. Work stress. You can see it in my last blog "Damn"
I need to accept that I have no control over what is happening at work today. It is what it is. I will need to face it when the time comes. And that time is not today. It will be tomorrow. Worrying about it won't change anything. It will only stress me out.
I can focus instead on what I can change. I can change the amount of laundry I have to do today. I can change my fitness today - I can go for a walk or a run. It will help me feel better about myself. I can make supper for Hubby and I.
I can control how I react to this whole mess. Yes, it will stress me out. At this point, I have to find a way to put it on a shelf. Not worry about it anymore today. Not even think about it.
I know. Easier said than done. That's why I'm trying to focus on the things I can change today. Maybe it will help distract me from the work issues.
I hate this. I'm not sure I can do it. I need to use more distress tolerance techniques. I need to put the issue on a shelf, and deal with the distress it's causing in me. If I don't it'll lead me to disconnect even more.
