I'm executing another one of my steps to gain traction. I'm fortunate that my work schedule is flexible and even more fortunate that my calendar is clear today, so I am taking the day off. I had a bad night's sleep last night - awakened at 2:30 by some guy screaming at his wife/girlfriend as he slammed his way out off of this floor. Tough to go back to bed after that - and then when I did go to sleep it was filled with nightmares.
So today is the day to Get Sh*t Done. It's time to take care of more of the niggly things that play and weigh on my mind so that I can gain some traction from this post-trip let down. First up, I'm heading over to the gym for a bit this morning. Then it's a few minutes to clean out MalibuKen, followed by writing a couple of checks to pay a couple of bills. Next up, a trip to the dry cleaners and shoe repair place on my trip to the next county. I've got some legal business with the neighboring county and then I will stop by the big box stores nearer to Reata South and talk to them to see if they have any subcontractors to do the work on the place out there if I buy my new flooring and cabinetry from them.
Getting Sh*t Done helps me get unstuck in a couple of ways. First, it creates a sense of accomplishment. Secondly, it creates a sense of relief - as in "Whew, that's out of the way". But primarily the feeling of accomplishment - no, it's not really accomplishment, it's more of regaining a feeling of control, as in I have control over something, which as we all know is pretty false. I guess I can look at is as doing what I can do and then letting go of the rest. Whatever. I do know that I will feel much better after a day like this and it's been ages since I've taken one.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Get unstuck.
