I was sitting here and had a realization. Sometimes my job helps me keep my sanity in tact.
I've always thought I hated math and numbers. Math was my least favorite subject in school.
However, a lot of what I do in my day to day job deals with inputting numbers, using calculations, verifying tabulations, etc.
Today has been a particularly stressful day for me. I've been letting worries bombard me. I've got stuff filed in the back of my mind that is trying to push its way to the forefront of my thinking.
So, this morning I threw myself in to my work. I have been efficient all morning. It has been rather busy around here.
Then in occurred to me that my job...the hands on stuff...has helped me stay calm despite my anxiety. It's the very numbers I could never appreciate that are helping me keep my ducks in a row. I think it's partially about being able to do this job without putting much thought into it. I could probably do it in my sleep....maybe even blindfolded. I think there is some comfort in that.
So I'm thankful for that today.
What's good in your life?
