Day 50: Accepting Change and Finding Peace.

How do you respond to fabulous?

It is the second week of my daughter's acting classes and I have to accept the painful reality that my schedule is shattered. What had taken an incredibly long time to establish was gone in a week. Leaving earlier and taking later trains home made it near impossible to take the classes I love that made me feel good. On the flip side, I was doing a lot more walking and getting some exercise that way. That is stretching it.

Last week was so hard on both of us that we both agreed to make it better this week and we did. No fights, no disagreements, just peacefulness. Ah. That's a great start.

At the office, one of my first emails was from a client who I had sent a multi-faceted media plan that took about a month to prepare. It was one of the toughest assignments I have ever had and I was glad to finally send it off with pride. The email read "This is fabulous!" and I didn't know how to respond. I finally just wrote "You're welcome. This is what we do." without making it a big deal although it was. We are so used to not getting appreciated for our work that I didn't know how to respond when I was.

Picking up my daughter at the end of the day, we decided to walk to the train down 7th Avenue. As we got to Times Square, only a few blocks away, we thought of trying to get inexpensive tickets to a show, "Newsies", and it brought her great joy! They had a lottery, that we were unfortunately too late for, and we'll try again on Wednesday. The opening was seeing shows spontaneously and isn't that a great way to be together. We thought so.
