You don’t lose as long as you learn

I just had the most stressful and exhausting day straight full of traveling, interviews and tests (going full on from about 3 a.m. to 10 p.m.). Oh man. I’ve never experienced anything like it. My shoulder is incredibly sore (tension, maybe?). I can imagine that’s how work can get, but wow. But I still can’t complain.

Now that I’m done whining about it, the tough stuff makes life not boring. The lows and highs are what make the roller coaster interesting.

Of course, there are so many things I could have said or done differently, but I feel like I stood confidently behind whatever answers I gave.

It’s easier to remember the bad things over the good. Why else do wounds come with scars? Why don’t we have anything to remember the good things that happen to us? Regardless, you’ve just got to do the best you can in whatever circumstances you’re facing.

Now it’s over and done and everything is committed to something higher than me. I can’t take back anything I said or retake anymore tests from yesterday and nothing is going to keep me from enjoying my today.

Right now I’m reminded that you’re supposed to rest after working (six days shall you labor, but you shall rest on the seventh day and all that). So I’m resting. I’m not going to let yesterday’s events stress me out any longer.
