Well last night’s realization on how I was surfing my stress was quite an eye-opener and naming it actually served to propel me. I had been worrying for over a month, maybe longer about my vacation (actually let’s be honest I have TWO trips that I have planned and paid for this summer that I didn’t know if I’d be able to take). I bit the bullet and put in for the time today. Then I had my regular bi-weekly skype meeting with my boss this afternoon and I just brought up the whole mess. I really had to face some fear because I was so afraid that I’d be told I couldn’t take the time off, and I knew I’d be facing some pretty negative feelings on the job, were that to happen. Well, none of that happened! The boss just said that I could take the time off, unpaid, if I had no vacation time. Well! What a great weight has lifted off me.
Secondly, I placed a call to the accountant regarding my outstanding tax returns. This is a stressor I’ve been surfing for over a year and the time has come to put an end to it! I hope to have the taxes filed by next week.
As I expected, I did have a bit of a mood crash when I got home. I felt a bit lost and sad, for no specific reason, and I just let myself cry. There, there. Now I feel like I have rebounded and can go on to my daily exercise. I am just so gol-durn excited at this breakthrough I just had to report back! BPOF, over and out! Go to the country!! Eat some peaches!!!
