I keep reminding myself that the things that I am trying to accomplish will get done.
Just maybe not in quite the time frame I had originally planned.
It seems as if I have written quite a few posts about how to deal with stress. I don’t care who you are or where you are in your life —stress is just a part of living. How you and I approach it is what makes the difference between dealing with it and not dealing with it.
Today I found myself adding one more thing to my To Do list. It was something that was not vital to my life or anyone else’s life and yet I took it on because….
Because I did not want others to be disappointed.
But then I thought further about it and quite honestly the people that I was doing something for had no idea or expectation that I was going to do something special for them . So if I had not done it it really would not have mattered.
But it is me.
I always want to go above and beyond. To make sure everyone is “taken care of ” and feels loved and important.
Last weekend my dear husband made sure that I had a perfect birthday weekend. I was able to forget if even for a weekend all of the things that are weighing heavy on my heart. I slept. I spent some really nice time with him hiking. I ate some great food. I practiced what my sister calls “self care”. I felt really good.
I need to remember those moments from last weekend.
I need to breathe.
What about you? Are you feeling weighed down by just one more thing to do?
