Life has funny ways of telling you things will be okay. Music and travel are usually sure bet cures for me to get me in my happy place. This path month has been tough on me. I do not like conflict and avoid it at all costs. Probably why I hate politics and never read the news (tech news doesn’t count). I took an online test once and one of my traits was harmony. I like things when they are working as they should be. I’m a fixer and problem solver so I either discard something if it doesn’t work or I fix it.
My way of fixing negativity and stress is to put my head down and plod along. One foot in front of the other. It’s not always a healthy approach, but it works for me. When I look up, I usually have a smile on face and things feel better. Is that time healing me or the act of moving forward? Not sure, probably a mix of both.
Shifts. When someone reaches out and says, hey, thanks for showing up day after day, you are motivating me to do more. Someone noticed. Nice. I do not seek praise in fact I generally don’t like, but sometimes it just matters and can shift my whole perspective on things. Pat myself on the back and say, yeah, all is good.
