Had a really busy few weeks at work with some new challenges as my role changes at work changes slightly. I love the new challenges but as always during a transitional phase there seems to be more tasks than hours in which to achieve them. Just to complicate it further – I set myself quite high standards.
This morning (between 2 and 4.30am) sleep was eluding me and my brain was in overdrive trying to sort the upcoming week and months and predict any other complications that I may need to manage. yes I do have a strong tendancy to overthink things but much as I tried – sleep was gone and stress was creeping in. Stress may be too gentle – perhaps even panic. Am I worthy or this role, can I do it, will I fail at the first hurdle, can I handle the responsibility? And how will I deal with tomorrow after a sleepless night?
Suddenly it was 6.30- thankfully I must have fallen asleep in spite of myself. Oh and the stress was gone. I have a plan. I can do this. I know just how to deal with all that needs doing.
For those of you who prefer your elephant cooked… here is a recipe for a nice Elephant Casserole.
- 1 elephant
- 2 rabbits or hares, optional
- Salt and pepper
- Brown gravy
- Cut elephant into bite size pieces. This should take about 2 months.
- Add enough brown gravy to cover.
- Cook over kerosene fire for about 4 weeks at 465 degrees.
- Serves 3800 people. If more are coming, 2 rabbits may be added. But do this only if necessary as most people do not like to find hare in their stew.
