Day 276: One of “those days…”

Long day. I type ably enough, but my mind is screaming me, “Let’s get this over with! I want to be done.” Yes, I’m eager to comply.

Today was one of those days that, by external measures wasn’t really that bad. Nothing out of the ordinary happened. And yet, subjectively, internally, it was challenging.

Today was one of those days where I just want to get into bed and relax, refresh my mind. This sort of a day used to be more common. In the past I would have just wanted to go unconscious, watch a movie, read a book, or just go to sleep. Tonight I’m able to check in with myself, and I have enough clarity and consciousness to write this thoughtful blog post.

Yet it was still one of those days. Maybe you know what I’m talking about. One of those days you feel like you survived. Again, I can’t point to any thing really wrong with the day. It wasn’t really “just another manic Monday” as the 80s song went. Yet it was a day in which I found myself getting quite stressed repeatedly, and like an electrical cord that shorted, I’m feeling a little fried from the over-abundance of electricity passing through me.

I’m confident I will pick up the pieces soon. Me being “Mr. Self-Reflection,” I always seem to pull apart any uncomfortable experiences, and then learn the lesson from them. I’m sure I will do that at again soon.

Today was just a normal day, yet some of the engines got a bit hot in the boiling room, so to speak, and nearly burst the radiator.

Today was one of those days where I had to repeatedly work to keep my head on straight. Teaching helped: you can’t really wallow when you are helping others.

Today was one of those days that I suppose is part of being alive for many of us. I adapted a popular phrase for my own use: “All’s well that ends.” Today was a little like that.

On the bright side, today is one of those days where I am appreciative that I get to rest up, rejuvenate, and start over tomorrow!
