When I get tired it can feel as if every room is a mess. Even though truth be told, it's the bathroom, where wellbeing and taking care of yourself is the central issue/topic and can, for me lead to every other room!
So... rather than stay up and write this blog about how my work/office feels messy (so much to do, so many projects I want to finish, both at work and in my home office... like another book!) then there's the bathroom, where I've gained a few pounds, been injured and stress eating, and the kids rooms where I need to make more time to get to their crew races and check in on my daughter's academic ups and downs (though she wants to be left alone about this, to fix it herself!)... Then there's the bedroom where honestly sometimes I get so tired my pillow is the most attractive thing in view... we've all been there, so if my hubby reads this, forgive me honey, since you are still/always my number one... it's just that darn pillow is calling my name!
Then there's the irony that just when I feel overwhelmed and exhausted others see me as having it together. I raced well this weekend, after weeks of injuries. Others see the results, and I see the work I still have to do to get back in to the shape I know I can be in! So... of course the very day I am set to skype into a book club and offer advice, I feel I need it. Need to reread my own book, need to lean on the supportive friends around me (thank goodness for them!) and need most of all to take better care of myself. So, as I said, going to bed! Things always seem easier and brighter when I'm rested! Night all. Take care of YOURselves as well.
My key proccess: too much of a good thing (work, training, trying to be a super achiever) is a bad thing (I get run down and overwhelmed). My pearl: Know your limits. Saying no isn't selfish, it's self preservation. Night!
