So I have spent the last 5 months fighting, along with others, for solidarity and fairness. This isn’t in my personal life but rather my work-life. It’s unfortunate when events from your work, spill into your personal life and affect basic necessities like sleeping and eating.
No matter how bad things seem, I’m really trying to look for the good in every day. Just EACH day. Not in the long term, not forever…but just TODAY. I can’t let my work consume me. Yet I can’t stay somewhere that makes me so damn miserable. The reason I stay? The love of my industry and the strong, amazing people I work with…
Yesterday as I drove to work, with every fiber of my being I wanted to keep going and head to my favorite little spot at Whytecliff Park and gaze out at the water all day. But then this great song by Muse came on the radio and I was so glad I was there in that moment, listening…the sun was shining through my windshield in yet another bright blue sky.
My day was filled with these little things…more great music on drive home, an amazing visit with Moops in the evening that made my heart soar (and then feel like it was breaking just a little bit), one of the BEST meals at All India I’ve ever had, watching a silly movie, an impromptu walk to the market up the road for chocolate caramel biscuits and the best hug from a little darling at the end of my night.
These were the good things about yesterday. The little things that add up.
Today brings more…once I get through a docs visit I’ve been postponing (ladies you know, the yearly one?) then the day is mine. There’s more sunshine in the sky and who knows what small delights await me?
All I do know for sure is, like I got through the crap earlier this year, I will get through this too ONE DAY, ONE MOMENT, ONE PRECIOUS “THING” at a time.
Celebrate the small stuff.
