A horrible day at work today.
I had a bad headache yesterday which didn't go overnight, and it seemed to colour everything I experienced. And it was a testing day for other reasons too. The opposite of a rose-tinted day!
Some days you just do what you have to do, calling on the reserves and memory of other, diamond days, and just keep looking at the big picture.
I tried to keep in mind what I'm there for.
"....children ... are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls.
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you."
- Kahlil Gibran
