Everyday I try to teach myself to let go of all the “bad” things in my life. To just take a deep breath and let it go. But most of the time, when I’m stressed or feeling out of my element, I catch myself with tears welling in my eyes. It happened again this week, in front of my computer at work. But I took a deep breath, shook my head as if to wake myself up, and went on as if nothing had happened. Until someone noticed and asked if I was okay. After which followed this line: “At the end of the day, it’s just work.”
And it scared me because for a moment, I thought that it was all I had at the end of the day. Then, the weekend comes and I’m reminded of the wonderful life that I have in my family, my friends, and my passions.
There is more to my life than just work after all.
