For the past two weeks, my mind was nothing but a blank blob of neurons. I couldn't write, I couldn't think. There were so many ideas and yet I could not work around creating a post. My hubby was worried about why I was not getting any drive to sit down and write. I simply had nothing to write about! I guess I went into a state of PNYSD ("Post New Year Stress Disorder")
The New Year for me brings some anxiety. What is bound to happen this year? Will I be healthy enough to get me through the next year? Will my daughter get married? Will my sons finish school? What's in for me career-wise? Will my hubby get his surgery to replace his aortic valve? Will I even have enough finances to take me through the rest of the year?
The first eight days of the year were filled with a lot of stress, so much so that I felt I was coming down with the flu. I was sluggish and unbelievably sleepy, probably a psychological reaction that would "fool" me into forgetting to think about things. It was during one of these days at work that I finally heard what I needed to hear. I was exerting extra effort to maintain my level of efficiency when I heard one of my agents say to his customer - "I'm breathing and I'm employed. As long as these two keep happening, everything will fall into place. Gotta keep the faith. I just gotta keep the faith."
It is amazing how one can find inspiration in places you least expect. I tried to backtrack the calls of this particular agent. I found out that he did have a happy disposition in life. Despite the cold artic blast, the gloomy weather and all, he still manages to uplift the spirits of his customers. In one instance, his customer was ranting about how bad the weather is in his place. When the customer asked the agent about the weather in Rochester, New York, the agent replied,
"The weather may be bad, but I'm breathing, I'm employed and I get paid on Friday. Life is good!"
Tonight, I go back to work again. I will keep these wise words in mind. I will pray for strength and guidance. And yes, Dyquine, I WILL KEEP THE FAITH AND PUT ALL MY TRUST IN GOD.
Life is definitely all good.
