Feeling Rather Peaceful Tonight

I have not felt as grounded as I do today in quite awhile. It feels as if there is a sense of "simple acceptance," though I am not sure just how to explain what that means to me in entirety. Even without makeup on, and in very casual clothing, two people who know me from my work said, "You look relaxed/pretty today." That must count for something. It does not mean that life comes at an easier pace, as there is some heaviness so many I know are experiencing with health issues, upcoming surgeries, court cases, and career choices. Yet, something feels different. Perhaps, it is a feeling of contentment.

In addition to going to the library today, I went to the computer center on base and printed all the paperwork to move my 401K from my previous employment to a new IRA I opened Friday. The paperwork is now complete, and the credit union people faxed the forms over to those who manage my pension fund.

It irks me that the plan administrator of the old account is charging me $75 to make the transfer. Even the people at the credit union were shocked at that cost, when I showed them. I also have a small account with my current employer, and they (same administrator) will do the same thing when I leave this company.

I refuse to get worked up over something I cannot change. I am simply glad that I am moving in the right direction, and this is one thing that I will be able to check-off of my things to do.

I also looked at all my accounts (credit and banking, setting up online access to keep a better accounting of what is happening with them. I downloaded my credit report from Transunion, and will do the same with Equifax and Experian soon to make sure everything is accurate.

Other than the typical errands of filling the car tank with gas, getting a few groceries, and the other things I mentioned, I spent a few hours here online this morning. Tonight, I ate dinner at a Mongolian grill restaurant.

I also had something happen today--a "sign," of sorts, which I will write about in the next couple of days. It has to do with a "thank you," which seemed strange that I would receive today/this week, when I have been in a bit of a tumult about some things going on. (Perhaps, MegL is right about these mirrors that keep popping up around me.)

Tomorrow morning, I will meet a friend for breakfast in Tacoma. I always love seeing her, and I am excited to tell her about the "sign" today. After that, I will head to the hospital to see how a friend is doing after heart bypass surgery in the morning.

It is now past 11 o'clock and high time I head to bed. I will have little time tomorrow to read and write, so I shall see you back here tomorrow evening.

Goodnight, Persona Peeps!

you certainly know how to keep yourself busy and I see you are really a caring person. Regarding the Mongolian grill, was that a Mongolian barbecue where you stuff thin slices of frozen meat and vegetables into a bowl, top it all with seasonings, and then give it to chef to put on a grill. i really enjoyed them and then eating the cooked meat and vegetables with sesame buns. I haven't found one in Thailand yet.

Thanks, Paulie . Yes, that is what I am talking of, with the big round grill top. My favorite meal out.

I have those days also. But they are very few and far between. I was one that was never told I look good or was never that guy that women found attractive. I guess I learned early on that I must learn to live and accept it. I actually never really thought about it. I guess I was too busy doing my thing. And I was never one to think I was good looking. Not like some of the jerks around when I was growing up.

inertia4 I don't have many of them, but am trying to learn. I understand what you went through, more than you realize. Not pretty enough, not smart enough, not everything enough...only I was made to think about it, reminded of it for decades. It is probably one of the reasons that I learned how to build up such a wall/facade over the years. Doing my best to tear it down.

Sounds like your time from work is agreeing with you very much.

I often have 10 days off between workshops, but this feels a bit different.

Sometimes, when we have so much choice, it is stressful to find our way through and something that reduces the amount of choice can be very freeing by helping us find a clearer path.

Is that an alternative to "can't see the forest for the trees"?

Lets not compare walls now. LOL. Mine is way bigger and thicker than yours. Believe me. As a matter of fact, I have mine incased in steel. Now, you still want to talk about walls? Okay, maybe I am stretching the truth a bit.

*laughs* It's not a competition. emoticon :winking:

*shows you my balls*

I know its not a competition. Just joking. Well, you chill as I am right now. Almost dinner time.

CoralLevang wrote on July 30, 2015, 10:49 AM

I'm joking with you, too. There is much to be left, without the voice inflection in written word.

inertia4 wrote on July 31, 2015, 1:05 PM

I know you're joking. No big deal. I know what you mean. Too bad we cannot always relay things perfectly with the written word. I try to though.
