Now that I’ve gotten my complaining out of my system and I’ve gotten some things accomplished, I feel much better.
Work often becomes the viewing glass through which I see the world. I’m used to being in an office, seeing the same people every day, 5 days a week, 4.3 weeks a month. While I do that here at my current job, I’m often in my own, dealing with the people in the community. For the most part, the majority of the people are really great, make me smile and are pleasant. I do enjoy the people who come in and these horrible ones are usually few and far between. Most of my feelings are fleeting and extremely transient, thankfully. But, it still is a temperature gauge for the community, one of which is not very humanitarian minded, based off their political beliefs.
My life, however, continues, regardless of the people that temporarily come and go. They don’t make up my structure of who I am.
Today I spent time focusing on some life coach skills. I worked on my schedule for this week, fleshing out the blank areas, filling in spaces and writing reminders. I rededicated myself to the plans and goals I created at the end of last year and took action on the intentions. It was refreshing and revitalising in a good way. Very little has motivated me in the last few months, so it feels good to have some direction and purpose.
I need to do some glass work but the cold makes it fussy and uncertain. I may do some supply type kiln runs, but the crafting parts will have to wait for warmer weather. I have other projects I need to get done, some waiting for supplies, others just waiting on myself to do them. I have time scheduled this week to get back to work on those things. I’ll post creativity posts to motivate myself and hopefully inspire others.
Now, it’s time to settle in, quiet down, focus on the present, and find some peaceful rest. (My rage crocheted flowers for inspiration!)
