Learning in Pieces was posted at 8:05, that’s before I proof read and spell checked (as best as I can do at that time in the morning.) I had to leave at quarter after, nothing was packed, I hadn’t brushed my teeth or dried my hair. I thought, Frosty maybe you should just wait, there could be more. But I posted it.
I was challenged twice today. The first time I said "I hear you and I will change the way I approach that." That’s what this week has told me. I had to go over the line to find the balance.
The next time, it was stuff that I learned from going over the line, stuff that I felt I understood and I stood up for it; stuff that came together after this morning’s post. It was intense.
I’ve always been afraid to stand up for what I believe in, or even mention what I believe in, in case someone (me) has to be wrong. I explained why the decision was made and did all in my power to make it clear.
I looked at a friend and said don't worry, it will get better. I believe that, I understand that. I see the pattern in life. New things are hard at first and then they get better.
I came home and added an extra ½ a lap to my run, giving me permission to eat chips with my chili.
PS...due to my work it has to be vague.
