But no more, my friends! I’m committing to you now to respond to your comments within 48 business hours. Er, “business” meaning my non-work hours. Please accept my apology for not responding right away. Truly, I thought I had, but just because I think something doesn’t mean you’ve actually gotten a response from me! I’m quite sure you can’t read my mind. Or can you?
So, how was your day? Or for my Aussie friends, and those on the other side of the world from me (I’m in the south-east U.S.A.), how is your day going so far?
My day was stressful. Work was stressful. I’m supposed to answer a bunch of asinine questions about change and how I can better go with the flow at my workplace. This “touchpoint” was not just given to me, but to the entire company, but I find I’m having trouble knowing how to answer the questions. Here’s the deal: I’m going along with the company changes because I have to, because it’s my job. It’s irrelevant whether or not I like it. But I kinda resent the implication that I’m resistant to change, my whole life has been Change and I know how to adapt. Anyway, I may need my supervisor’s help with how to respond. She tends to be good at bouncing ideas off of.
After work, when taking my kids back to their dad’s, I saw a notice from the fire inspection department, threatening legal action if I don’t remove items from under the stairs because it’s a safety hazard. You see, those are not my items, they belong to my upstairs neighbors. I’m not sure if the whole building received the notice as it is addressed to the entire building, but I feel extremely tense because I’m going to have to have a conversation with my neighbors about something unpleasant (that isn’t even my fault – I allowed them to put their bikes there in my space to be nice).
Anyway, my brain will agonize about this until it’s dealt with. And my typical self would procrastinate and avoid any conflict. Maybe I can get the courage to be my non-typical self and take care of this right away so I don’t have to be anxious about it for a week (when the items have to be moved). My social anxiety and conflict avoidance make this a very difficult task, but it doesn’t need to be.
I didn’t want this post to be about my day – I wanted to write something interesting – but I think I also needed somewhere to get some stuff off my mind.
Maybe tomorrow I’ll write something more interesting. Looking back at my Nano Poblano posts in years past, I had other things to write about. Any prompt suggestions are quite welcome.
Please do tell me about your day because talking about my own is quite boring.
So, how was your day/how is it going so far?
