Oh what a day I had yesterday. It wasn’t bad it was just . . . super full.
I had a monthly report to file.
I had some annual paperwork to finish.
I had to renew my passport agent certification. This included a web based online training thing that took the better part of my afternoon.
I fielded several phone calls about town stuff.
I had to get to the bottom of an overdue invoice.
I had to reschedule picking up my new car. Stupid impact weather day.
I had a Board of Selectmen’s meeting.
In between all of that busy stuff, though, there were good things.
A package of essential oils arrived.
I tried a really great new to me hand cream.
I had a delicious beet and goat cheese salad for lunch.
I grabbed 5 minutes to knit before I had to go out for my evening meeting.
I relaxed after the day’s work and meetings over a beer and light dinner with Dale and my cousins Len and Peg.
I got to write a blog post telling you about my day.
I felt useful and challenged and loved.
So. Even though I didn’t have as much down time as I prefer it was still a good day.
It’s all in how we frame our circumstances, my friends. Frame them in a negative way and a day can be terrible. Frame them with a positive spin and you can turn things right around.
It’s all in the framing.
