I know it has been a while since I did a Feel Good Friday post but I am feeling especially good today. It has been a rough week. Here are just a few of the high lights or should I say low lights: Dog poop, cat pee, crazy co-worker refusing to work with me, argument with same irrational co-worker, stress, anxiety, tension, and not enough sleep. So, I am feeling good today because I do not have to deal with any of the above for at least the next three days.
Last Friday I was filled with anxiety. I was preparing for two parties, my uncle’s 70th birthday party and a jewelry party that I hosted at my house. I was worried about how I would feel attending a family function with my dad’s siblings now that he has passed away. Would it be too painful??? I was worried about having my friends over my house? Would they be disappointed in my house or would they see the Joy of my imperfection???
This Friday all that is behind me. Both parties have come and gone. My uncle’s party unfortunately was much harder than I expected. I missed my dad terribly and had a hard time keeping my quite tears from turning into loud sobs. Thank God for bathroom stalls. My party on the other hand was a success. Many guests arrived. They laughed, smiled, ate, purchased a little jewelry and overall had a good time. And so did I!!!
This Friday I can say I survived. I put on a brave face and overcame some of my social anxieties. I cleaned up the dog poop and cat pee and still love my pets. I accepted that crazy irrational co-worker is going to be her crazy irrational self and all I can do it stand up for myself and hold on to my sanity. I deep breathed, prayed, and vented (to friends) my way through stress, tension, and anxiety. This Friday I am looking forward to sleeping in.
This Friday I am feeling good because I have no stress, no worries, and no obstacles in my way as I Chase Joy.
Why are you feeling good today???
