I’ve been able to take a very stoic and proactive approach to my situation. It’s been like the serenity prayer on steroids. I’ve been watching a lot of the show Supernatural. Whenever the main characters are in a jam, often apocalyptic level situations that seem unwinnable, they go back to their hotel room start pacing and say “okay, so what’s our next step”. It’s like saying “Yes, I acknowledge that the world is coming to an end, but I can’t fix that yet, so I’ll just figure out and do what I can do next and focus on that.” I mean, I’ve been out of work before. I know how to job search. I am damned good in interviews. My contract technically expires on Thursday, and I actually feel confident that I will have a new job set up before my old job ends. My old job, though I love it, has released me to having better opportunities. For that I am thankful.

My qi gong practice was cut short by the dog wanting in and out. I can here my mother’s voice “The central air is on! You’re either in or your out, this is not a revolving door!” I felt very light after my practice. Maybe it was all the deep breathing.
