A Quick Daily Study: Stanza 31

Yesterday everything that could go wrong did but I didn’t stress. I was super proud of myself for not letting my mind overthink situations. I did my job, in fact, I actually cared about the final product. I was also able to voice my concerns and opinions about certain things not that the person (one of the many in the office that treat me like I don’t matter) actively listened. In the end, the company will make money and gain more recognition off of my hard work. I realized the problem with their snobbiness and the fact they believe that they’re better than everyone else is THEIR problem. Action reflects leadership and they learn from what they see their supervisors do.

I didn’t get a chance to have coffee with my friend due to health problems with her and we have made plans to make plans next week (if weather permits). We talked on the phone and that was just as good. Up in a good mood and continuing with the Havamal study. I have to say that it’s helping through my day to day life.

Pocket Version:
Clever thinks himself the guest who
jeers a guest, if he takes to flight. Knows
it not certainly he who prates at meat,
whether he babble among foes.

Chisholm:
He is wise who leaves the flyting
when guest mocks guest.
He who grins at the feast
does not know that he chatters among foes.

I think this is a continuation from stanza 30. I think it’s saying it’s better to leave while mocking and making fun of guests is starting to happen. If you sit quietly and grin or snicker you are actually not sitting with friends. They will do the same to you. I think that I couldn’t leave however but try to get the person to walk away with me or say something in their defense. The people being rude are already going to talk about me why not give them a reason.

Happy Wednesday everyone!
