Ruhu's Journal, 25 March 2014

Back to the grind today & up to work. I do the bookkeeping for 3 small businesses -- my BIL's mulch business and 2 self storage businesses that DH & I are partners in. The mulch business (where I'm headed today) is busiest in the spring, still somewhat through the summer, but mostly quiet in the fall & winter. So, it's time to gear up again for the busy season. This is the BIL who is the recovering addict, but he seems to be doing well & working his recovery program. He's trying to sell the business, and has a prospective buyer in the process if it all goes through. I don't know who will be happier if it sells -- him or me!

On another note, I thought I'd attach a link that my therapist shared (although yesterday's appt was canceled as she had a patient emergency) called "The Power of Introverts" -- I really enjoyed the talk, and it confirmed as I've been realizing about myself that most people are neither entirely introvert nor extrovert and lie somewhere between with qualities of each. I'm finding more & more than while I want & need time alone, too much can be just as unpleasant as too little. So, once again, finding that happy medium is the key.

But before I'm off to another HIIT workout this morning and then to work this afternoon, I'll pray --

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.

And, for this one day and through each one meal, moment, bite, thought & emotion, I'll pray, breathe, log, journal & express my way. I'm so grateful for each of caring you, my family & IRL friends, hopefully what is the last burst of winter with warming temps again after, and having the health & wealth to live this life I love including the routine of the everyday! xoxox

Wonderful journal and thank you for sharing the video. I always find it so interesting that some of the more 'revered' people are the 'quiet loners' but I guess too much time has been passed where they are the front page news - hard balance and all we can do is protect ourselves.

I'm also one of those mixes of people. I've had jobs that dealt with customers or patients all day, like doing things with others, but my sanity therapy is my solitary time working in my garden, quilting, or pursuing other interests. I think it recharges me. I'm comfortable and enjoy doing thing by myself.

I'll have to remember to check out the video tonight. I was an extrovert BEFORE I knew about living a life in the present by listening to me and the person that might be talking to me. I believe living without the music/TV/games/phone/chat going all the time means to be sort of an introvert because we need the quiet time to know who we are and what we want. Hope your day is lovely and healthy!

One bad thing about coming back from a trip is that no one has done your work while you were away. Hope that business sells soon.

Hoping for you as well that it sells. Keeping up with bookwork is a challenge much less trying to catch up.
