I don’t know if you’ve had these days but lately, I’ve had them more frequently than not. I figure instead of totally losing it writing about it would be therapeutic.
Ever had one of those days where the minute you open your eyes you know it’s not going to be a good day?
Ever had those days that you sit at your desk and you just want to get up and scream and just leave?
Well I’ve been having a lot of those and I ask myself what has driven me to this. After a lot of soul-searching I realize that I just do too much in one day. I realize that I put so much pressure on myself that it just becomes paralyzing. I feel like saying I need a moment is not an option. So what do you do for this? Its simple really, just unplug and do the things that you like.
We are not perfect but we can be imperfectly happy. We can say I’ll do it tomorrow instead of staying up until 2am to complete a task. I’m not saying this can happen all of the time. What I’m saying is listen to the inner voice that is saying you need a moment. That will stop you from doing or saying something that you might regret. Trust me your job can survive without you for a day or two, just step back and let them. If you don’t answer your kids the first time they call you name it’s ok. If the house doesn’t get cleaned today, it’s okay. It all gets done in due time. So breathe, take a moment and be still.
