Sleeping Perspective

"Way, Hey, Hey, it's just an ordinary day and it's all your state of mind. At the end of the day, you've just got to say, it's alright."

That's the tune that's been going through my head during those fleeting moments of being awaken during the night for two nights in a row now. Yesterday a small bombshell, in the form of an unwelcome announcement, was dropped at work. After bemoaning everything that was newly out of my control I said to my boss, "This is an interesting opportunity to make the best of." Then, to the rest of my coworkers I said, "I'll take it in my stride but I'm going to bitch and moan for a few days first." It was on my drive home from work that those lyrics went through my head.

Last night I dreamed, in a traumatized kind of way, of just how I thought all this out of controllness was going to play out in reality. When I surfaced from being comatose to awake the lyrics went through my head yet again.

Here's the song if you haven't heard it. It's Canadian, too!

I've had a bombshell of an announcement at work lately, myself. Yes, sometimes I think moaning and groaning and feeling aggravated is in order for a while......... after all, acknowledging my feelings is crucial to getting through them without stuffing them. I do love the lyrics, and the "it's OK" attitude.
Thank you, Hope!

A little moaning and whining is a great release, I find. When it becomes our theme song, that's when we're in trouble. I keep working on not letting it become my theme song.

Good luck in your journey -- you sound like you're well on the way. It's not easy, but if you've got hope, you've got a chance.
