Things have been going well. I am not complaining at all. But today, was a day! Usually I feel I am good at dealing but today tested that theory. As much as I talk about the good days, I’ve also said that I would highlight the bad ones.
It wasn’t one thing that made my day bad it was a combination. Without getting too deep into it and boring you out of your mind, let me just say that I had to think quick on my feet on how to attack each issue and today was the day I allowed every negative thought, self-doubt, etc attack. Shout out on being able to call my husband on days like today where I felt I needed support. I could have easily reached out to friends but I just didn’t have the energy to do so. My husband was there to listen to each thing, and offer many suggestions that he knew I wouldn’t take initially. You sir are the MVP.
Walk it Out
I finally got some mental relief by taking a walk in the sun. Something about being outside even for a few minutes that boosts the spirits. I took a drink of water with me, made to apply some sunscreen and sat in the sun with my music on and looked around. I didn’t go on my social media to look at what others was doing, simply minded my own business and enjoyed a few minutes of sun and reflected on the pep talk my husband and I had. Soon as I came back, things lined right back in place. I realized that at this new job I have been running non stop for days and I haven’t had a break. I will incorporate a break daily going forward. This job is super demanding but I will do some work self-care to get me through. I also noticed that break helped me work on my personal goals that I needed to attack and line up for the weekend. Trying to manage time and get everything in with a full household full of folks that all have to be places is not always as easy I make it look and that’s with my husband’s hands on help.
So today, take a break! Simply get some air. Clear your mind and do take a social media break even if it’s for a few moments. Do not let anything rob you of peace of mind and definitely don’t be the one who gets on your own last nerves. You got this!
