Last week I was feeling stressed out. My work had asked me to take two Fridays off in a row because of a lack of projects to work on. From this, I jumped to the conclusion that I would probably have to take every Friday off until my inevitable pink slip. Dramatic? Yes. Did I think I was being dramatic at the time? No sir, but I was. Oh how I was. So dramatic in fact that I started a search for new jobs, researched school options and even cried to my thoroughly understanding bf who whilst being understanding, also gently told me I may be being a bit dramatic. Did I believe him? Nope.
Of course then, today I get news that a project I've been waiting to start is in fact starting. This means months of work. I also was told that I'll be needed in the field for a week, if not more. More work! And so, my bout of drama-queen-itis was unnecessary. Lesson learned. Better lesson? Even if it seems a situation warrents feeling dramatic, it doesn't! Feeling/acting dramatic is a choice. Instead, roll with the punches, go with the flow, choose to be happy no matter what, and life will work itself out for the better. It's true.
