Last Monday was an awful day for me. Nothing really bad happened, but I felt bad. Not sick, just emotionally bad. I don’t really get depressed, so it was a strange experience for me. I had no explanation for feeling down, no real reason or cause. But it was real on that day.
Today was an amazing day. I got up earlier than I wanted. My sister and her husband are visiting. They woke me up 10 minutes before my alarm went off. (Translation: I woke up earlier than was absolutely necessary and before I could finish my dream.) I had to drive an hour to get to work (what? Leave the house?) I facilitated a group of people through a hard workshop and it was exhausting. I drove back home in time for a coaching session. The whole day was amazing and exhilarating and I was 100% working from my wheelhouse. I received an email from a coaching client that made my day. I cracked myself up writing a snide, silly and sarcaustic email to my friends. (Yes, sarcaustic is a word. I use it all the time).
Last Monday, I realized that I was feeling blue. I could have let it spiral. I didn’t. I also didn’t try to talk myself out of it. I just sat with it. It passed. I knew it would. And in the middle of that blue funk of a Monday, I also believed that there would be an amazing day like today coming in my near future.
Is the glass half empty or half full? Who cares? I believe that mine is refillable!
And remember: in all things – progress, not perfection!
