Sometimes life gets the better of me

Today was one of those days where life got the better of me.  When this happens, I essentially have my own little meltdown of sorts. 

It’s nothing like a real meltdown but basically, everything around me becomes too much for me to cope with. 

When this happens, I’m not the easiest person to live with.  I start panicking about everything that I have going on.  Today I was freaking out over things like bills and the fact that I wasn’t able to get as much done as I wanted to.

Normally, I’m able to sorta filter everything out. While the piles of laundry and dirty dishes always bother me, I understand that it’s simply not a priority at that moment in time. 


Everything around me essentially becomes like static and I can’t focus on anything else.

I’m really hoping that I’ll get to actually sleep tonight and not have to get up at 4am with the boys.  Perhaps a good night’s sleep will really help me to find my center and regain focus on what’s truly important.

Something that I’m really trying to work on is remembering that I’m only human and I tend to be my own worst enemy. I compare my weaknesses to everyone else’s strengths and I essentially set myself up to fail.

I need to learn to forgive myself for everything I can’t do, especially when life gets the better of me.

Life does that sometimes! Sometimes I feel like everything I was is gone. So many people telling you so many different things. So many appts. So far away! So many complaints. So many telling me what I did and do wrong. No wonder I doubt myself constantly! But I get up every morning and try again, just like you do! A little vacation from the emails, anyway. People talk about our team, and I think it’s just me and Mike, what are you talking about team?
