… even if it seems a bit smug-sounding.
That said, I’m not sure what I did this week other than ‘show up’ to engender feeling sublimely satisfied.
I take that back. I did something yesterday morning that profoundly made a difference in how this weekend feels:
DH and I were slated to be out of town this weekend and I’m slated to be on an airplane for work on Monday. I was feeling incredibly stressed and wondering how I was going to do it all. And DH is exhausted still from his marathon working weekend last weekend. And it’s supposed to rain all weekend.
So, I suggested to DH that we stay home. I told him he was too tired to drive in the rain and that his cat missed him. He agreed. Stress is somewhat alleviated. And I am happy that I made a suggestion that helped make that happen.
And I’ve decided that I only need to name one Core Desired Feeling – Engaged and Sexy are just further refinements of sublimely satisfied.
Speaking of engaged – I just found a fantastic editorial site: The Conversation. It’s a site where journalists and editors work with academics and researchers to write engaging, informative and non-partisan articles. DH read a great piece from an ethicist about the VW debacle. And I read how a librarian raised community awareness about book banning by banning a book. If you like to be informed and challenged to think, this may be a site worth checking out.
Speaking of sexy. Um. Not. ‘Nuf said.
