I've had a big meeting to go to, a bad back, and a bad cold. Ugh. Monday was for me a day of vertical prayer. When so much stuff happens at once, I get into my "dark place" and start whining. For me, all there is to do is to be simply with it all. Ignoring the details, the voices that want to pull me under, just sitting with it, letting it be, trusting that the darkness will not over come me. And it passes. sort of.
Though the back still hurts a bit, and the cold is fading, I'm back into the thick of things at work. It's going to be a long week. It's not a question of keeping one's head above water but of how to snorkel.
Maybe I'll have something of interest to post next time.
