Made the day

I made the day without crying before, during or after work.

This morning I had to get in and send nasty emails away to thewife. I got a burr of anxiety from the re-read, scanning unbidden until I forced myself to stop, then decided to explore the outside of my new workplace to combat the anxiety of the action.

It was a brisk walk, and I sweated beneath my hat, but I found paths that wound around and one that went around the end of the building. 

On return I delved into the new project, losing myself in the laborious checking of site architecture ahead of a refurb. 

I didn't get angry, I didn't get sad. I just got on with my new work.

That I can reach this place of relative calm is down to experience and support. I've been through it before, I'll get through it again—and I have help from people who love and care for me.
