Have you ever had one of those days, where you don’t even want to say what could go worse because there will be something. Today was my day, I have been away from work since last Thursday for one vacation day and then a three day training. I could not afford to be away, my caseload has been exploding. I was stuck in traffic twice that was so bad that I had to use my anger management skills. I was taking my three deep breaths and trying to do the pleasant imagery. The cars trying to merge that I did not want them to merge and the ones driving so fast.
Again, I was stuck in traffic and I was listening to the radio staring out the window and I caught myself staring at the most beautiful sunrise. All I could think of was how I could just sit there and get lost in the scenery. I asked God to give a calming feeling and allow my brain to slow down. I reflected on what is in my life and present time that I am thankful for. The past did not matter, what is done is done and the future is exactly what it is, the future, what is to come. Carl was so understanding that he let me vent twice, I got home and he asked to go outside to play bean bags. He had a good idea to distract me from the day.
Here are a few pictures I snapped while I was sitting in traffic. Take time for yourself, reflect and meditate. Allow yourself to get lost, whatever it is, it will be there tomorrow!
