I have not written in a while, and I don't really have an excuse. I say that I am overwhelmed, but is it any different than the years where I wrote a lot more? I would say, "no".
So what is it? I think I have found myself in my head a lot more lately. What does this mean? For me, it means I keep having some of the same negative self-talk, or maybe a better description is, "frustrated mantra" repeating over and over in my head.
What did I used to do to get past this or avoid it all together? I think there were 3 main components. I have realized 2 of the 3 I am not doing. For me they are Exercise, Sleep Well, and Write. I have been exercising lately, but the other 2 have been a struggle. So by writing this blog, I have now done the writing part.
I am headed to exercise, now if I could just get to bed earlier.
I then think any feeling of being overwhelmed, won't go away, but will be easier to manage.
Stress is good, feeling defeated (overwhelmed) is not. I want to go back to being stressed! That sounds funny just typing it.
