I’m not 100% sure how to start this one, so I shall go with the usual tried and tested method of typing sh** that comes direct from my brain, into this small white square and see where it takes us. For those of you with paint to watch dry or busy-busy lives to lead, why are you here? 🙂
This week has been…. complicated. Complicated by a not fully pleasant cocktail of conflict, tiredness, and a bit too much on at work. The latter is my own fault for jamming a lot in to the week and being out of the office quite a bit. Now, usually, that’s not a massive issue, and indeed, if anything, I really enjoy meeting new people and hearing what they’ve got to say.
Perhaps it is a hangover (not literally) from last week and I’m still not back to my usual self. You know, the confused, slightly tubby Dad with two wardrobes, a fast track to self-deprecating humour, and a fine line away from a wisecrack to a visit to HR. 🙂
But…. I think I have forgotten the following important philosophical teachings:
1. Most of this sh** don’t matter.
2. Don’t Panic
3. Remember – and be mindful – of the good times
In Life’s 24 hour rolling news come social media now now now, I think there’s a risk that we dwell too much on the moment and then spin out into what might be. While I think being mindful of what is happening – particularly if something good is happening – the future, and dare I sound like a good friend who runs meditation classes, is unknown.
With the above in mind and a half-finished pint in hand, perhaps taking time to think of the good things that have happened and are happening, I may be in a better mood in days to come. From a trans point of view I felt pretty good about my outfit on Thursday, we had a visit from TrendCo (hello Nicola & Steph), laughed about things, and had a good chat about life.
So, with half-term very much upon us, I’m going to kick back, enjoy what things come my way, and do my best to relax and just be.
