Unplanned the planned

You know how I was going to volunteer at events with the Dalai Lama? No? Well I mentioned it herehere and a lot on twitter.

If you read the above posts you'll know how well it didn't go on Wednesday. It'll also give you a hint how well it isn't going today.

Yep, munchkin is still sick.
Bad quality but this is how we slept last night
I've changed my attitude though, it may have something to do with the fact that the mister is home today and we are going out tomorrow.

I've decided that I am going to take the Buddhist approach to this and try to remember it for future plans that get unplanned. Today, at least, I am being mindfulness and remembering that emotions pass and I'm being confident that my choice to stay home with munchkin (and take him to the doctor/hospital) is the right choice.

This approach has meant that I am not in a foul mood, feeling bad, anxious or upset at the situation. Oh normally I would be. I'd be feeling guilty, anxious, angry, upset - if it's negative I'd be feeling it and it'd eat me up. I'd be the one staying in bed all day feeling sick.

Instead, I'm going to do as much uni work as I can, we are going to the doctors/hospital to get munchkin checked over, we have to go to the mister's TAFE and I'm going to slowly eat the delicious Jackpot Noodles left overs.

Oh and I'm going to flog my blog so the fabulous Glowless doesn't cry more. She loves blogs and wants to FlogYoBlog so go over there, watch the video, try not to cry (with laughter) and help her (and you) out.
