I had the morning from h-e-double hockey sticks. I don't even want to talk about it because I'm trying to make up for it. When I was on the phone crying this morning, I got some good advice. My friend said, "just take a few breaths and try to stay present. As you move to the next moment focus on the next task at hand. Try not to think about everything that needs to be done. Do your best to focus on one thing at a time. Remember, what you focus on is what you feel." So I'm taking that advice.
Even though I have a -$59,000 difference on this spreadsheet to figure out in less than an hour, I'm taking a break to focus on something more important. My health. It's slowly declining so when I came into work this morning I armed myself with Zicam, Tylenol Cold Head Congestion, tea and chicken noodle soup. When I get home, I'll get some orange juice and some much needed sleep to help build up my immune system. This cold will not win.
I am so looking forward to this weekend. I think I'm going to pull out of a commitment and rest instead. This job is a challenge and it's consuming a lot of my energy, so I need adequate time to rejuvenate. Besides, there's nothing better than a day to yourself. I miss the days when I could lay in front of the tv. I miss the essence of relaxation and what it means. Everyone told me to enjoy the time I had off, and I certainly did. It's a good thing I didn't take it for granted.
Back to work.
