With all that is on my plate this has been a tough week. I have been trying hard to wake up happy, think positive etc. but this week was a struggle.
The worst part is that it’s all on me…MY TIME MANAGEMENT SKILLS SUCK!
Let me give you some back story. I have a newish job...I have been there a little over two months. It is completely different than anything I have ever done so this learning curve is huge.
This job is challenging because it’s causing me to use a part of my brain that I haven’t used in years. I work over 8 hours most days and lunch breaks are few and far between. When I leave work I’m pooped and the thought of doing anything else makes my head hurt.
On top of that I’m all #healthynotskinny so at least three days a week I try to work out. The earliest I usually get home is around 8:45pm.
Oh, and let’s not forget, once I’m home I need to eat and get ready for the next day.
I also took on a leadership role in an organization I am apart of which means more work and I had an article due for my church magazine this week!
Last but not least…The Blog! I have so many dreams for my blog and where I want to see it go…more work!
By the way, MY SLEEPING HABITS SUCK TOO!
I want to be great, wonderful, magnificent and amazing in everything I do but right now I’m feeling a bit mediocre.
Have you ever been so tired and frustrated that you can’t even function? That’s me right now. I have so much I want/need to do and I can’t wrap my head around how to make it all work.
Some friends, bloggers I stalk and my mom seem to do more than me daily and they make it look so easy. Did I mention they always look fabulous too?
Listen, I have worn jeggings to work more than once this week LOL and nothing on my face.
So, why am I telling you this? The purpose of this blog is to be transparent in sharing my journey in this thing called life. Social media will make you believe people’s lives are perfect. I know I have and do fall into the comparison trap (see above).
I’m sharing because last week I was preaching positivity, being happy etc. and this week...well...I’m not positive at all and its okay as long and I don’t live in this phase.
This is for anyone that is having a tough time. We are human and everyday isn’t going to be perfect but we just have to keep pushing. As the saying goes…This too Shall Pass!
Overwhelmed but not giving up
