I woke up before 4 this morning. Wide awake… can’t go back to sleep… head churning.
I have been a bit overwhelmed lately. Feeling like I am swimming upstream… all the time!
This morning I spent a little time assessing my mental state. I hit on the fact that this is a pattern for me. I take on something new, focus so hard on learning that, and everything else gets pushed to a corner… diet, exercise, housework, cooking, planning, the poor dog. I don’t take time to put a little effort into my appearance. It’s take a shower and get started.
I have tell tale signs. No makeup, hair in a bun or pony tail. Sweat pants and tennis shoes… no groceries in the house… dishes in the sink… laundry waiting to be done.
I took a look around.. low and behold… didn’t even know where my hair brush was… laundry over flowing (I have way too many clothes)… Just out of control.
Every once in a while you need to reassess where you are, what you are doing, and why. If it’s not what you were hoping to find… fix it. Not tomorrow… now.
Yes, I am giving myself this pep talk. I woke up not liking what I saw… but that’s ok. I’m on it!!!!
