Work and Stress

What a crappy day, in fact I have to say yesterday and today were crappy days (22/23-10-2010). I had the worse days at work I have had in months.

All started on Saturday when I returned work after the wedding holidays in Italy. Maybe it was due to the emotions of the previous days or maybe there was something in the air. But I was happy and jolly. This did not last long because I was told that on Monday I had to go to another place to work for two days. I did not have a choice. My destiny was decided for me and I believe it was because I was not present when they decided. One thing I did not do was to ask clearly again and again where I was going to work. I was dreading going to that place because in my mind I was going to the place where a girl I clashed with in the past works. So whilst I was told to go to A in my mind I agreed to go to B. I didn't want to be late so over the weekend I organised my work cloth and checked which train to take, everything was perfect. That girl I was supposely going to work with was not coming in, this cheered me up. (Image source: traceybuchananstudio)

Come Monday morning, I get ready and opt to skip breakfast because I did not want to be late. This was a great advantage because I got there ten minutes early. When I enter the building I find a guy who seems surprise to see me. I don't like new places but I always manage to fit in easily. I was inquisitive and I wanted to know why they need me there if they were already full staffed. He did not know because he was on holiday until that morning. I was distressed because I was sure I was told to come to that place. Around ten I decided to phone my normal work place and they told me that I was supposed to go to A instead of B. I was ashamed and annoyed because to take the train I had to add money to my travel card. However in the end I got there one hour and ten minutes later. By this time the rain had started to pour on me. But today was even worse beacuse I was up early and took the bus then changed to take the train but that was a mistake. I don't take the train often so I did not know the train connections very well... Guess what? Yes, I was 25 minutes late. I felt like crying because it was cold and raining plus I don't like being late and these two days have let me totally down. Most of the time I was all hot, and the little voice in my head was saying: "They thing you are stupid..." I was putting myself down badly. To be recognised as the real clever that I am I tried to impress but I just ended up doing more damage. In the last hours before the end of the day I became sad and demotivated. I wanted to leep out of my shell and shout out the frustration. But thanks God I realised that sometimes even the greatest person get stuck. And I told myself "What you need to remember is take things a little bit happy-go-lucky. Sometimes you have to know that you are too strict with yourself. You need to learn to accept some of your flaws." I have to learn this big lesson because one day I will have to be strong for more than ME. I still feel I like I am a little girl learning the big lessons of life. 

Maybe I am stressing out because I am not sleeping eight hours as I am supposed to if I want that healthy ME. I am glad I wrote about it. I feel much better. I love blogging for this reasons. I can destress easily which is impossible when you are writing with pen on paper. I still write my journal but it's been long since my last entry.

From tomorrow I will try to calm down, sleep more than six 1/2 hours and meditate more. The last point is an impulsive decision. It doesn't count. But why from tomorrow and not tonight? Because my brother is coming over. Plus tomorrow I have an important appointment at the GP ;), so I have to get ready.
