Gutting it out

I’m operating on sheer stubbornness right now. Most everything in me makes me want to stay home/crawl under a rock/die, but I stubbornly come back in to work each day. I refuse to fail, and success requires perseverance. I do what I must because no one else can, will, or does. I will prevail.

I’m sitting in the new Starbuck’s across the street from work— a much better work environment than my office! Liz is working with Pam Miller on tinting for our windows and a possible AC; when that work produces results, life will be much, much more tolerable.

Today is also the start date for my two new RHDs, S. and D. We won’t do much in the way of orientation until next week (at the earliest), but it’s good to have quality people in place in key positions. We have hope.

More hope comes with the dedicated spirit of the RA staff. I’m going on retreat with a core group of them this Friday, and I hope we can prepare a bit for the trials and opportunities to come. Kairos: crisis and opportunity.

So ahead are many things which resemble a finish line. I just have to make it. Dear God, help me make it.
