Where I don't have gaps in my knowledge:
Okay, so if I'm so smart why do I feel so completely dumb lately? I almost got into an accident this morning because I was not paying attention to the other guy. All my files at work are in a disorganized mess. My plan is just not coming together with the work I have to do. I did manage to get one letter written today on a very overdue issue that required more brainpower that I wanted to provide. I didn't want to write the letter mainly because I can't help a person that I really want to be able to help; but my hands are tied. I need to shake off this soft compassionate side that is hindering my objectivity. Whoa Whoa Whoa!!! What did I just say? No, that ain't right. Not right at all. The situation just sucked for a customer and I had no way to fight to a "yes" for her. But I did respond in my educational, helpful and empathetic manner that is important to me. It's just some decisions suck more than others. And some external resources just aren't as helpful as they should be. Then I had dinner with my buddy Wayne and I think I pressed to hard about him finding a job. He accepted it but I could tell that it bothered him. And the prick that I am pushed the point of asking him what color he wanted me to paint his room in my house when it comes time for him to move in. I can be such an ass. But if it comes to it, my home is his; because his home has been mine before. I think my minds just a mess right now. But I did have two gentlemen today thank me for being patient with them. One went so far as to say that I missed my calling as a psychologist. I did actually, only because I knew that I'm more sponge than mirror. I would totally take on people's problems as my own were I to be a counselor. So I take my psychology degree and exercise the soft skills outward into the world to assist people. I focus on the mirror reflecting and I don't absorb. Who am I'm fooling. I so very much absorb.
On another note: Circuit City is a local business that has been fighting to survive. They have products that appeal to all purchase ranges and wallet sizes. I'm fighting myself to tell you to boycott the City because I think they could have done better and because yet again they let several friends go today. But I like the City so much better than Best Buy. Maybe it's the old-school in me. But I say "Save the City".
