I’m struggling today.
The fatigue is really bad today, and I’m just feeling stressed with life in general. It doesn’t help that my plans for today ended up going sideways; I had intended to do some work in the office today, working on researching my next assignment for my university course as well as running up to Alliance to get pet food for the dogs and cat. Unfortunately, Lynn ended up suffering from a brutal migraine today, so instead I ended up having to cover the store.
Oh well, as long as I can run up to Alliance for the pet food tomorrow it’s all good. Willow is getting short on her kibble, so the trip up there is definitely a need.
The store hasn’t been overly busy today, but it has been steady, with a steady stream of people through the door, coming in and browsing and or just in to visit. I did succeed in getting an article written for the paper, but other than that I really haven’t had much of an opportunity to get much writing, or research, done today.
Something I have figured out in my life is plans change, as much as I would like them not to. It’s not good, it’s not bad, it just is. Things happen, and we can either get let it bother us, or we can adapt and overcome, something which the human species is known for.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I don’t like change. I don’t deal with change well, however avoiding change isn’t always an option. I’ve learned to be able to make plans, yet remain flexible enough to adjust to any changes that may occur, such as having to look after the bookstore on short notice.
Dealing with change isn’t always easy though, and despite my ability to adapt, changes still throw me off my game. Again, it’s not good, it’s not bad, it just is. Though, admittedly, throwing in the soul-sucking fatigue I’ve been dealing with over the past couple weeks has definitely not helped matters any.
Still, I’m getting through it slowly but surely. And tomorrow is a new day.
