There are so many awesome things going on in my life right now, but I’m spending a disproportionate amount of time feeling anxious and overwhelmed. My plate is just a wee bit too full and a big part of me dearly wishes I were done with my job already. I keep reminding myself I just have to hang in there for a few more weeks.
I’ve had to turn down some performance opportunities this month because I’m already overcommitted. I hope August is as ripe with opportunities as June seems to be!
When I start to get stressed, I am trying to remind myself to deal with one thing at a time, to try to live in the moment. I’m having a cup of tea each evening after the kids go to bed, and lowering my standards for how tidy the house has to be. I’m trying to perform random acts of kindness, and focussing on the joy of girly giggles and squeaking swings.
It doesn’t always work, but often it does.
Tell me, please: what is making you happy today? Share your joy with me!
And I promise I have a “Good Things” post coming soon.
