Thanks so much everyone for your feedback. It's great to hear that kind of validation, especially when my boss apparently thinks I'm making bad decisions. It's so hard to see myself that way through his eyes.

Today I sat down and just wrote out all of my objections to his decision, so I can feel like I've got it out of my system and organized in my head. If I have any opportunity to say what I think, then I'll be ready. And if not, well, at least I've confirmed to myself that my original decision was correct, and I can just see this as my boss making another big mistake.

Last night I listened to a great tape by Jack Kornfield about equanimity, that was so helpful. He was talking about how life is constantly full of changes and big surprises. We are always experiencing gain and loss, pain and pleasure, praise and blame, fame and disrepute. We think that if we just do things right we can have the one side without the other. Praise without blame, gain without loss. But life isn't that way. These are the eight worldly winds and they all visit us periodically. We can see them as blowing in and out of our lives.

I'm having a wind of loss and blame. But it will blow out again.
