A Good Day.


My day today was really good. I started my new job and I can already tell that I’m really going to enjoy my boss and my co-workers. I’m pretty certain that this is going to prove to be a job I will be comfortable in for the next year or so, while I’m in school working toward doing what I actually want to be doing.

My needs are pretty simple, and my expectations are pretty reasonable. I just need to make enough money to keep myself well nourished physically, spiritually and emotionally and this job should cover that for the time being. I need a job where I’m respected enough to be trusted to do my best, and not pressured to allow my job to suck my energy and time for my own interests away.

I wasn’t able to cook tonight as I didn’t get much sleep last night (was too wound up about my first day) and the bike ride, dog walking etc, combined with all of the nervous energy from working my first shift have left me pretty pooped. I just had yesterday’s leftovers for tonight’s supper. Tomorrow I’ll work on getting something interesting going for supper, but I’m not promising anything, as tomorrow is potentially the day I’m going sage picking with a friend, and if we get to chatting, it’ll turn into an all-day event for us.


I have tomorrow off, then work on Friday. I’m hoping to have Saturday off as I have plans to attend the March Against Monsanto with some friends, but as I’m working in the service industry, weekends off will likely prove to be rare occurrences. I’ll have to practice asserting myself to have my needs met, once again.


About couleewind

I'm a 41 year old woman from a small city in Alberta Canada. I am whimsical and bitter-sweet and am essentially a marshmallow in a porcupine suit. I collect Pez dispensers and books and I love to talk, although I do tend to be fairly introspective. The sort of content which you will find here will vary depending on the day, my mood and what’s going on in my world or of interest to me. I mainly blog as method of reflecting on my day and on my life at the time of the post. I have a history of struggling with social anxiety and depression, as well as type two diabetes, and through living a plant-based, wholistically centered life I've made great strides in these areas. This blog is meant to reflect where I'm at in my life, and how I'm moving toward creating the life I see myself having in my dreams. I will often discuss, whole foods, meditation, personal growth and my day to day struggles and victories. I am also a highschool drop out who is returning to school at age 42, and a person who lives on a very tight fixed income currently, this will also be reflected in my blog.
