“It all comes crashing down” or “Undertoe”

Amazing how life nosedives so suddenly. It’s not that something in particular has gone “wrong” or that I’m in a worse situation now that I was a week ago; I understand it’s a perception issue and that my mindset has shifted.

But really, perception is a pretty big thing–maybe the main thing. It controls attitudes and persuades beliefs; it drives motivation and synchronizes communication and develops mission. And right now at work I have a different perception than I did a week ago and I’m not on the same page with my boss concerning the stuff I just mentioned.

Frustrating. I want to be. I don’t want to have this distorted perception of my workplace. But this feeling is recurring on a more regular basis and I don’t see a near end. Of course, I didn’t see these coming in the first place. Last week was great. But this week seems to be a different story.

So I’m in the market for a better attitude and renewed perception/perspective. I’m not very effective–as a worker, as a friend, as a Christian–when I get this way. I really need to do a better job of separating work from life.
