A Better Day Today...
Thursday, March 03, 2016
I discovered a good NSV yesterday. It was a particularly stressful day as I attended the strategic planning meeting and it did not go well. After leaving work, I dropped off some mail, picked up some items from DD's house that I needed, and went to a local shopping area to browse and lift my spirits. I thought it was particularly good that I realized how down I was...a 1 on a scale of 1 to 10...and I did something about it that did not involve eating...distracting myself by walking around at a couple of stores. NSV!
I did feel better after that and came home and had a normal evening...though I did not get my walking in. That's two nights in a row. One, due to exhaustion and one, due to depression. Not good. Today, I will get my 12,000 steps in. It will be a priority.
I listened some more to my audible book, Neuro Tribes. DD came over for an hour or so in the evening and we shared work challenges and talked about our audible books. She discovered that we can share audible books! So, now we both have access to each others library...nice!
Today is her 5-year anniversary with her boyfriend. I'm happy for her. I know that she would like it if he would propose soon. But, that's up to him...and he's a slow mover. But, hopefully, someday...
Today, we have active shooter training at my workplace...which is very good timing as a local jr./high school had a shooting incident Monday. I know we will all take it very seriously. Hopefully, today will be a better work day. Spark on!
