Today Jamie Ridler asks this question: what do you wish to reclaim?
I wish to reclaim me. I wish to reclaim full self expression. I wish to reclaim my right to say no.
Two things happened at day job in a week. Actually, it’s the same thing, twice: they asked me to stay on afternoons I am not supposed to work there. Because, you know, it’s a busy period, and what if there are any emergencies, and blah blah blah. And I am pissed off. Because I said yes. Ok, to be honest, I told them I didn’t like it, and I said yes nonetheless.
It might look like a small thing, but I still remember vividly how this feels. Because the second time happened 30 minutes ago and this afternoon, I am stuck in this office, before going to teach two classes tonight and really finishing my day at 8:30 pm. Then it’s time to go home.
I am feeling so out of alignment right now, so angry at myself. This, peeps, is one of the first lessons I am learning this year. I think I will remember now what it feels like when you are not listening to yourself and you are trying to please people versus doing what feels right for you.
And this will probably have me hand in my resignation before the deadline I have set for myself 😀 The Universe showing me the way, eh?
