I have a very stressful few weeks ahead of me. My goal – not to unravel! (not completely anyway).
I’m not going to run and hide from the challenges set before me (not every day anyway)
I’m not going to drown myself in sugar and caffeine (not every meal anyway)
I’m not going to hide behind jokes and sarcasm (well, actually I probably will do that)
I will delegate tasks so I don’t have to do everything myself (even though I will wish I had because I will have to follow up and probably end up redoing many of those tasks)
I will eat well balanced meals to keep me energized (in front of the kids, once they are in bed I’m gonna pig out)
I will exercise daily (does running around like a chicken with its head cut off count as exercise?)
I will breathe deeply and live in the moment (then blog about it later)
I will keep my sense of humor (the last remaining fully functioning portion of my brain)
Here we go, countdown to unavoidable stress begins when I hit publish – 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 – No looking back, here I go!
(I’ll explain the added stressors in other posts, I think if I write about them now I may just go back to bed)
