So tired, and it's only Tuesday
Once a week I take myself out to lunch at a Thai place where I've been going for years. The guy who usually waits on me was ringing me up today, and asked me how I was.
He said, "But it's only Tuesday!"
I am planning three major events in the next three months but most of what has worn me out are not the hours at work, but the personalities that go with them.
There are a handful of people we interact with who are a real handful, people whose words and actions occasionally spur me to go home and wonder why I ever quit drinking! Some people in our organization make the excuse, "Oh, but they have been through so much!"
So have many kind and caring and thoughtful people, is my argument.
And today I found a quote to that effect:
Don’t allow your wounds to turn you into a person you are not.
– Paulo Coehlo
Food for thought.
