I have gotten to do some pretty cool stuff lately but haven’t been able to sit down to write about any of it. You know this isn’t the first time I’ve mentioned and\or complained about time management. Sometimes it is just easier than others to squeeze everything I want and need to in.
Last week I was starting to feel overwhelmed with everything going on in our lives, which truthfully probably isn’t anymore than what’s going on in anyone elses life. Feeling like I needed to hit a reset button and decompress though, I took a personal day to spend some unplugged time with the family. I needed to set aside the never ending to do list and mom worries.
During our free day we learned pizza and gelato is the perfect dining out meal with a 2 and 4 year old. We chased my son all over the Oklahoma Railway Museum. We danced with my daughter. We enjoyed each other.
The next week I had a stomach bug, the kids had a virus, work kicked my tail. It was a long week and that overwhelmed feeling was starting to rise inside me again. I guess that’s just part of this season of life I’m in at the moment, and I certainly can’t take a personal day every time I feel that way. But it was nice to take one that day.
So friends, tell me. How do you handle and cope with daily stress when your plate is full? Teach me your ways!
