Everyone struggles. How do you get passed it? Turning to unhealthy habits is not the answer, but that seems to be how I cope. It is a nice warm blanket for your mind, but it burns me out too fast. The lack of good sleep wears and wears until I have anxiety about fun things just because I’m worried about being tired. Moderation. Center yourself. Right here, right now, what can you do to feel better and increase your chances at success going forward? I can make business better, but I can get out there and meet people, and I can work on the internal systems to prepare for the calls. The stress comes from the day to day waiting for the phone to ring. I will be ok, it’s my family that I’m worried about. How can I bear the brunt of this while staying sane and healthy myself?
When they say it’s down I’m up.
When they say it’s up I’m down.
Are they behind, or am I?
When they say swim I drown.
Instead of feeling pressure to do things, why not just do what comes naturally? If it’s work, so be it. Music, writing, sitting, watching – it’s ok. There is no pressure outside of what you put on yourself. Breaks are ok. You are just one person, not supporting the whole universe. You can do it, and you will do it.
When I asked for that,
my world crumbled and shaking,
you held me steady.
Let’s get this done. Your family needs your effort.
I asked for a sign and I got it. It wasn’t a good thing either, but sign isn’t synonomous with good. Now don’t look past the sign. It said you have no choice but to go on, for your family’s sake. Month 2 of Priorities – can I go on? Breathe.
I’ve decided to take a break on the daily haiku’s. While they are fun, it was starting to be a burden and I was just forcing the issue. Like it or not, I’m going to continue to write, but will be taking time to explore some other areas for awhile. Maybe some new poetry, maybe some new short stories. The blog world is my oyster!
