Allowing Myself

…to feel, to love, to be.

Tag: jet lag

day 8: selfie

Jetlag + 7AM training = not much in the mood for a selfie. Experienced a bunch of anxiety during the day, but was really proud of myself for handling it. Worried the dog (and our house) has a bad case of fleas again. Had 85 emails to process. Needed to write an article, which when I finally sat down to do it, took less than an hour when I thought it would take two (thank you 45min timer). Tried to concentrate on what my mind feels like when I’m in a good mood and feel that I was in the safe hands of the Universe.

It all helped.

Boston Work Trip

Quick trip to Boston. Majorly packed schedule. Already having an issue with Google Calendar translating my schedule between East and West coast. Working 9-12hr days and then going out to dinner with friends or colleagues. Not sure why I did this to myself but man, productive trip. Waiting to see if one of my larger work projects gets green-lit to move forward. I have a feeling it’ll get caught up in red tape (things always do).

I realize so much of my purpose when I’m on-site is to mediate, translate and empathize with everyone. It makes me feel purposeful. While the work I do for my job is important, sometimes I think the real deal is making my co-workers / bosses’ lives easier.

Which ties to this random blog post I read this week about “leaving things better than you found them”. I can’t find the link right now, but it’s a new mantra to carry with me.

Here’s to hoping I do that on this trip.
