The post-it note from today is ‘how do you fly? you need a happy thought and a sprinkle of pixie dust.’
These are the instructions in how to fly in Peter Pan.
You need a happy thought.
And a sprinkle of pixie dust.
I am currently involved in the training of the day shift charge.
I have not had a lot to say on here about this situation.
My mother said that if you don’t have anything nice to say, say nothing at all.
Okay, my mom didn’t say that.
It is what I think is a southern mama’s truism.
Kind of like bless your heart.
The situation is tenuous at best.
And some of my coworkers read this blog.
So, the less said about that the better.
Until I completely lose it.
One of the things that they said to me is that I admired because I always think on the positive side.
And I seem to fly through the shift.
With nothing bothering me.
However, I am way more zen than this person.
And I do not internalize stress.
Some of this can be attributed to my upbringing in Northern California, one of most chill places in the country.
Northern California is definitely where I developed my idea about conserving energy.
I think that a person is given only so much energy a day.
And you can either feed the energy and stay energetic by having positive thoughts and working hard.
Or you can sap the energy by having mean, or uncharitable thoughts, or playing the blame game.
‘This person didn’t do this, so I’m not going to do that’ kind of nonsense.
It is your choice, really.
Do you get the symbolism here?
A happy thought is a positive thought.
Which feeds the energy.
Which allows me to will the cases to be over at certain times.
Of course, a little checking in and verbal agreements with the MDs doesn’t hurt.
Where does the pixie dust come from?
Hell if I know.
