You know the feeling.
When life gets overwhelming.
One day, you’ll be kicking life’s butt and taking names. Conquering the world with your can-do attitude while unicorns sing your praises and you sneeze glitter.
But then. Things happen.
Maybe here’s a crisis. Be it medical, life changing, or simply the times when the small everyday crises mold together in a mob mentality and form one big breakdown that is usually triggered by the stupidest thing ever.
And then you let go. And you cry The Ugly Cry. You feel the feeling of dread. You start hitting the snooze on the alarm until you make yourself run late, which always ruins the whole day. You can’t begin to know where to start on your to-do list so you start doing things that aren’t even on your to-do list (and then adding those things to the list just so you can cross them off).
If you’re like me, you’ll start snapping at people around you. Feeling emotional for “no reason.” Tersely replying, “I’m fine” when people inquire about why you’re acting this way.
So I’m here to remind you, and really I’m here to remind myself, you are so much stronger than you think you are.
And everything gets done. Really, it does. You’ve been here before. In the midst of this feeling. In the quicksand of not-enough-time, amid the jungle of too-much-to-do. And you’ve gotten through it before. And you will again.
Look in the mirror today, get out your pom-poms, and remind yourself – you! are! so! much! stronger! than! you! think! you! are!
And if all else fails, this always makes my day brighter….
Happy Monday, folks. Let’s go kick it right in the face!
