This was my icon at the end of yesterday’s work. I wish I could write more about the process, but when I do, I have to use the words. The words are so out of the jargon of normal life that if I use one, the blog comes up in searches. I do not want that to happen.
The most amazing thing is happening this week. I am not thinking about work. I am putting my phone away. I am not checking e-mail. My stomach is starting to straighten out and not hurt. I don’t feel the steady of tension that I normally have.
The most wonderful thing about all of this? I think this very well may be a permanent condition soon. I know my new job will not be perfect, there will be people who aggravate me, there will be parts of my job I need to learn, etc. But I don’t believe I will ever have another person like my current boss in my life. I think I will not accept such a thing again. But you know what else? The experience has changed me in profound and wonderful ways. And I am grateful for that.
