Jackie and the Awesome, Terrific, Very Good, Super Great Day

29 Jun

I won yesterday.   I won all day long.  I won at everything.

There are days when I feel like I suck at the world.  I suck at breathing, at talking, at thinking – all of it down the pooper.  And on those days I think about what it might be like if it were reversed and instead of everything being awful, everything would be super awesome.

Yesterday, it happened. 

I woke up a little late, but managed to get showered and decent in time to be at work two minutes early.  I walked two miles.  I got a lot done at work.  My day blinked by so quickly that I actually stayed late because I didn’t really mind.  When Dave picked me up from work, he asked me what I’d like to have for dinner and I realized that I’d gotten a lot done already this week and I might be able to enjoy myself for the evening.  

All day I was in an awesome mood.  Nothing was a big deal, nothing made me freak out, and nothing made me stressed.  I handled my fashion-cape-wearing boss with ease and quickly tended to things that I could have let go until stress built around them.  I made some  good progress on several stressful projects and somehow things that were huge pains in my life worked themselves out on their own.  And to top the day off, when I checked my email last night, I was greeted with a confirmation for my approved ‘Media Pass’ to a ridiculous event I was hoping to attend for free on the grounds that I’m covering it for my blog.  Access granted – operation intense Lollipop Tuesday is in the works.

It.  was. awesome.

And then I got to thinking about how I should probably soak this day up because I can’t even imagine the hell karma that will pour down on me tomorrow as a result of it.  Or the week after.  Or whenever.  But somewhere, there’s quite a storm a’brewin.

And that’s totally fine.  Because if super terrible days mean that sometimes I can have a super awesome day like this, I’m all in.

Bring on the storm. 

Today’s RAK: writing a letter to someone who could use receiving one.

    Congrats on your great day!

    And are you serious about a blog qualifying one for a media pass? I’m calling the White House immediately!

      Well, I got a confirmation from their Communications Manager. So I think I’m good to go. They’re sending me a packet in the mail. Let’s hope it doesn’t ask for anything silly like credentials. 😉

    I love those perfect days and you are right even though I never thought of it before..those days strengthen us for ‘the others!’
