It was very interesting that the WPC was Chaos because Thursday I had a long talk with myself about how I thrive in chaos, but shut-down when things spiral out of control. What does that mean (to me)? Chaos for me is very controlled – it gives me my time in a situation where everyone else is freaking out/high emotions to be the calm in the storm. To look at the situation and really be able to map out how to get through it.
Today became a bit more of a spiral for me. This weekend my mom and my sister were visiting and for a lot of reasons that is a very high emotional point for me. The we have had some work stressors. We are prepping for a trip to Japan and just a myriad of things going on. And then my Outlook shut down (I rely 90% on my Outlook to run my day) and I went from a controlled chaos to a spiral. It was out of my control and I lost my grounding.
Learning how to deal with this is part of my spiritual journey. How to breathe through the spiral and move forward vs. going down the spiral.
