Back On Track

When times get stressful, I find that I have to set my goals aside. I get into that head-down, power-through frame of mind.

Right now, all I can do to make it through another day. Oh, boy. That sounds dramatic, but some of the challenges going on right now are overwhelming me. It's time to give myself a mental shake or face-slap. I need to get it together.

I really dislike when I am not moving forward, when all my effort goes into merely keeping my head above water. Survival, that is all I've been handling.

And yeah, maybe there should be some sort of pride in that, in the survival, but I am capable of more, so that's what I am going to do. I'm going to do more. Be more. It's time to make a new list. Time to get back on track.

Michelle it sounds like you do exactly what I do, hide. Everything gets put behind me as I try to face whatever it is on hand. If I try to deal with anything else it gets all blurry and I can’t focus. I’ve even tried taking my mind off whatever is bothering me by reading a book to take me out of the reality of it, but many times if it is too draining or stressful I can’t even do that. I won’t get past the first page and you know me. That’s saying something. I say the two of us really need to make a buddy list again and tackle things together.
