I want to whine about stupid work things.

Instead I will recognize that today is a beautiful day. The sun is shining, everything is ephemeral, and life is short.

What does it say that today I'm being served up articles on quitting your job, and why micromanagement causes people to quit... :thinking_fire:

Distraction level near maximum this morning. I arrived at work with a notebook I don’t need and my lunch sitting on the kitchen counter at home...


Let’s see if I can reel this day back in.

Morning my lovelies.

Never, ever negotiate with someone or something trying to do you harm.

Always be open to compromise and understanding, but do not sacrifice an inch of your well being to appease anything that wants injure you.

You have a right to defend yourself. Your peace and happiness matter.

Big ugly is over (I hope forever) with a good outcome, and I only started to shake and cry once.

If I know the worst thing that can happen, and I know I can deal with it, I can allow myself to stop actively worrying, right?

You can tell a lot about my mood today by that last freudian typo:

I just saved a file called "membershit renewal"

whoops. :thinking_fire:

"...Also, maybe just speak your fears into the world. I learned that when I was 25, that to say it out loud is the solution to it. Just to speak what you’re worried about is very, very helpful."

(Also this interview with Rookie reminded me that I want to see Eighth Grade: )

Baby step. Baby step. Baby step.
