1) Everyone counts down the working days hoping they make it until Friday. This is not new but it keeps poking me in the side – I don’t want to spend my life counting down the weekdays until that one moment where I am free (for 48 hours). The nice thing about doing my PI work is that I truly love it. Yes, breaks are so important, yada yada but I never feel like I’m counting the minutes to freedom. It’s nice to feel that way.
2) I can only take so much “what’s on your plate for the weekend?” or “how was your weekend? Do anything fun?” – I respond and ask in kind because I’m nice and it seems the thing to do but mostly I think no one cares. I’ve never been one for small talk and man, I am hardcore surrounded by it. Long-time readers know this was the bane of my existence back in the day.
Thing is, if I like you, I’ll listen to your inane conversation for hours because you listen to mine and we love each other. If I feel neutral about you (or worse), inane convos will be very short. Terse, even.
3) Going from big-picture woo-work to details about the 3 cents in your account makes my head hurt. It never used to but it’s like having to run in two directions at the same time. Not a fan, I’ll tell ya.
Anyway, that’s what’s mostly rolling in my head these days. Things in ‘the cage’ are easier now (mostly I scan and fax all day) and I’ve released my attachment to “saving” nice cage lady. I’ve offered references, my car if she needs it and a friendly voice. That’s all I can do at this point.
Working on some big guilt pieces that also need to be released. Guilt is never a helpful emotion and it can motivate you into doing some things really not aligned with highest good.
