Thank you all for being patient. Assuming that there are no more hidden surprises coming from work, I am ready and going back to my regular schedule tonight, and I am very much looking forward to it. The energy is completely different on my regular shift, and it lends itself very much to the type of life I am trying to create. Plus, no more 10 hour shifts, which means I now have my time back to put forth my energy into creating and writing here. So I am very excited.
I must also say that, while I was less than ecstatic with the shift I was working, it was an astounding learning experience, and much of what I learned will become more blog posts here. I was not surprised by much of the interpersonal interactions that occurred, but sometimes I would find myself caught off guard by some of the emotions I was able to witness from others.
I’ve spent the last couple of days resting, recuperating and healing from the stress and intensive energy expenditure of the last 2 weeks, and I must say that it is times like these, transformational times in between responsibilities, that make me most grateful for being home when I can, and doing basic tasks like housework. It seems silly to most people, but it is the simple things – laundry, dishes, etc. that bring me the most peace when I need the most healing, and that’s what my last two days have been.
So now it’s time, I’m getting back on track. I’m putting my focus where my focus belongs. On what is important to me, what is important to those around me. Helping others. It’s a life of service, it’s a life of beauty. It’s a life of joy. It’s a life that feels like home.
