Today I got done the two most intimidating items on my to-do list: the phone interview from yesterday and a call to the Tufts financial aid office. Neither really felt too stressful at the time, but once I got them done, I felt great, like I’d had a weight lifted off my shoulders. I’ve written before about how doing such things can feel great, but it’s important to remind oneself. Furthermore, an original insight for this post is that stressful things aren’t always identifiable as stressful in the heat of the moment. But if you can manage to put your finger on what it is you’ve been putting off, do it, and you’ll feel great.
[Other great happy things right now: these two baked goods from Rao’s Coffee in Amherst. I swear their baked goods under the new management rival the Black Sheep Deli. And another great coffeeshop-related happy thing: I ran into an old friend from high school! We caught up a bit and are hanging out more later tonight! Yay serendipity!]
