CLIMBING HIGHER and THINKING OUTSIDE of the BOX

i survived the past week !
yes i knew i would, the alternative was not a realistic option.
but i have spent the last two days sleeping it seems every spare minute i could find.


yes, the past several weeks around work has felt like an uphill climb.
and i'm terrified of heights!
relationships broken...
on committees that forced me outside of my comfort zone....
very outside my comfort zone !
[ presentation in front of large group that are not in my peer group]!
trying to repair some relationships...
will take some time..


my knees get weak, feel like jello....
then i start having visions of free falling......
forever down into the abyss.
i know i'm stressed when i start dreaming this "free fall" dream.


yup, when i start dreaming that dream it is time to circle my wagons,
regroup,
reorganize 
review my priorities,
write it out if need be,
and get back on MY track,
and off what i call the
treadmill of life.


i have spent the week end doing just that, with encouragement from family and friends.
[ thank you Alice for being a wonderful friend and checking up on me].
and today i am hosting my quilt group
serving pie from my daughter's MEOHMY pies
and getting back into my groove.

hoping you are having a peaceful sunday!
