When I get into one of those downward spirals like the one I found myself in yesterday, I should be able to talk my way out of it. I know things arenít as bad as I can make them seem. I know Iíll survive, and meet all the deadlines, and even if I donít, itís not the end of the world. I know these things, but I canít seem to remember to tell myself about them. At least, not while Iím going through it.
Today was better. I slept later than normal, and I got some important work done and behind me. That light at the end of the tunnel is glowing a little more brightly. More importantly, I have a plan. I know what I have to do each day to get through the week ahead, and I proved I can do it by getting the DE-6s and all the 1099s done today. The fewer loathsome tasks that remain on my to-do list, the lighter the air feels and the easier it is to work on erasing the frown lines.
