Good Morning and Stress Management

So I woke up this morning in a great mood. I have no idea where that came from…

I remember getting dressed in the living room (because where else would you get dressed?) and thinking how lucky I am to have found someone who is the perfect match for me. Then while walking the dog I noticed to the east the sunrise was amazing, and the clouds were moving fast so it was constantly changing. To the west the clouds were just a thick flannel gray blanket which actually made them the perfect backdrop for the half circle rainbow that was plastered against them. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a sunrise rainbow before – but then, I haven’t seen all that many sunrises.

Things changed after I got in the truck. I think there was one or two intersections where I didn’t get a red light – those intersections had stop signs. But I still managed to hit all the landmarks on my commute on time, except the last one where I sat a quarter mile away from the office without moving for twenty minutes.

I was scheduled to attend a stress management class today, which is probably a good idea because I do have a little stress in my life right now. Going to the stress management seminar was a little more stressful than I expected though, because it took me away from a surprise staff meeting on departmental layoffs. I missed this swing of the axe, but I don’t think it’s stopped moving yet. we’ll see what happens. I guess there’s no sense in stressing out on things I cant change.
