Meaningful May Day 25: It’s been a bit of a day and I have spent the majority of it feeling stressed, frustrated, wound up, angry, irritable and generally cheesed off. It started well enough… 🔅 I finished the leaves on my embroidery. Just the lizard left to do. 🔅 When I arrived at work and discovered that the area, outside the lab, had been cleared. I’m so glad I got in touch with the Trust about this. 💪🏻 🔅 I went for a quick walk before work started and these buttercups looked very striking against the wall. Then work happened…and I ended up feeling as grim as the clouds in the final photo. 😑 Today’s action is to ask someone what matters most to them and why. I decided to ask myself. Fairness. That’s what matters to me most and it’s a shame that I don’t see more of it in my workplace. We used to be a great team and now it’s every man for himself. The number of people who have walked past the ringing telephone today is unbelievable. I came back to my workstation to discover someone had logged me off my computer. I went to do something and came back to find that someone had taken my chair. Then, whilst I was in the middle of a computer-related task, I had three people come and ask me to do something else on the computer so they didn’t have to log on. That meant I had to come out of what I was doing and go into what they wanted. One of them asked me for a report, meaning I also had to also go to the photocopier, log on and print it off for them. Honestly, I’m agog at the way people are behaving. I’m trying to not let it get to me but I’m failing. So, apart from the pre-work pleasures, was there anything else positive in my day…? 🔅 I remembered to do some neck care exercises whenever I went to the loo 🔅 One of the secretaries sounded relieved that I’d answered the phone because she had a tricky question to ask 🔅 I did a yoga practice 🔅 I dried last night’s dishes, then washed and dried tonight’s 🔅 there were other annoying things about my day that I shan’t mention (and that is positive in itself, right?) Tomorrow is a new day…I hope you all have a lovely rest of your day. ☺️
