Today, find a place of stillness
When things feel topsy turvy at work -
and they often do, as I am a perfectionist
with slight OCD conditions - the one thing
I seek out is quiet, solitude, quietude.
It recharges my battery, calms my soul
and makes me able to face another day.
It's not the work itself that becomes too much,
it is the people. There are many who do not -
or cannot - work in an orderly fashion.
Maybe that sounds crazy, but why would a
person pick up and put down the same item
over and over? I'm a one-touch worker: if I
pick it up, I deal with it right then and there.
It seems to me that some people might gain
many minutes in their day if they just did things
a little less frenetic and a little more orderly.
Yes, that's my own issue, and I realize it.
Most days, most times, I can work around
those and do my own thing. Other days, their
"issues" are burdened upon me; the tasks I
can handle, the negative energy that comes
my way from those people is the harder issue.
Which is why my home time is so precious
to me, why I need my space and quiet,
to set my bare feet on the Earth, letting the
negative flow out, the positive recharge me.
