The last two days have been lovely, no negative thoughts, no anxiety, I’ve just felt completely refreshed with good thoughts. Despite the fact I’m beyond tired, laughing until you cry is like soup for the soul.
I’ve had two very long days and have been working elsewhere which is always a nice change during the summer. I’ve had the pleasure of being surrounded with so many different characters, which is a welcome change.
There is nothing better for me than to be around good people, it automatically lifts my spirits and changes my outlook on life. There’s nothing worse than being stuck either at home or at work alone. I mean my whole working life I’ve been part of a team and when I started this particular job I was mostly with other people.
But due to cost cutting and staff shortages the past 6 months in particular have been especially lonely, more so during the week. I don’t take well to it whatsoever, no one should ever get used to it either, it’s almost soporific.
People are meant to be with other people, reach out to someone you think is alone and show them it’s actually possible to like the world around them. Yes it’s bloody scary at times and you always come across someone that makes you want to hide in your shell, but for the most part there are so many warm people and they’re not as far away as you may think. First step: get out and go for a walk, you never know who you’ll meet.
The last two days have been a gentle reminder of how lucky I am, despite having a job that drains me and thinking my life at times is beyond mundane, being around people that I like and like me is particularly soulful!
