Happy Monday, friends!
Most of the time, I like to pretend I have it all together to most people in my life (besides my inner circle!), but the reality is that I’ve been struggling the past few weeks. Work is incredibly stressful and it’s taking up not only time, but mental space. I’m traveling more and, when I’m not, my brain is still processing what is going on which leaves me EXHAUSTED. It’s one of those times when you want to just say “to hell with it” and quit. Quit doing everything you should be doing…quit getting up and ready to go to work, doing the dishes, the laundry, working out, etc. Some of which I may or may not have done during the last few weeks! To be honest, the only thing I want to do is curl up on the couch with a book or mindless TV.
But, I’m an adult…with a family at home that is counting on me and a team at work counting on me. I have to put on my big girl pants and charge forward. “Just keep swimming” has gone through my head many times because that is what I need to do. This is short term. Things will calm down again (at some point…), and the only way to get through this time is to charge ahead. I know I’m capable of it if I keep my head in the game even when I don’t want to. Also, a glass of wine or cocktail is helping tremendously during this period!
In the meantime, I will just keep swimming, swimming, swimming…
