This has been an interesting week to say the least. Work has been…well…frustrating. I have definitely had to rethink how my job and how I want to do my job. I wrote some about this earlier this week and I was forced to think about it a little more after a meeting on Thursday. Once again I am reminded that I cannot do anything about how others do their jobs or how they handle themselves. I can only be responsible for my job and how I carry myself. While I want to be assertive and speak up for myself, I do not want to become too hard or rigid. I long for that “gentle and quiet spirit” that Peter writes about. I think I have a hard time finding that balance. I felt like at the beginning of this week I had a real “I’ll show them” attitude and in the end it bit me in the butt. Now I believe for the other parties involved in the end, they will get theirs as well but it just got me in a different way on Thursday. I definitely got the hint and I hope to be a little more discerning this week.
On other fronts, I was once again let down and had to miss a fun opportunity because of my stupid illness. I had let one of my meds run out and of course had no refills let to call the pharmacy this morning so I’ve had to go without which brings about some “lovely” neurological side effects so I had to stay home. Yuck. That’s all I have to say about that.
But to end on a positive note, John and I are really enjoying having people our age at church! Last Sunday we had lunch with a couple after church and last night we met another couple for dinner and ended up hanging out until 10:30! Thank you God!!! It is so refreshing! And another positive is that John & I bought a new chair for the living room and I can’t wait to get it home! It’s called a “cuddler” but it is basically a 2 person recliner! I have a feeling I know where we’ll be spending alot of our time! I’ll post pics when it gets delivered!
Here’s to a better week!
