I am so tired. Tired of so many things.
Darkness can overcome even the lightest light sometimes. Do you ever feel that way?
Last night I woke up to my thoughts around 2 a.m. Thoughts that refused to allow me to go back to sleep. There is just so much going on in my life right now. Some I have control over, others not so much.
All of it seems to be weighing me down more and more. Now this blog is not meant to be discouraging but rather motivating. But I feel in order to allow you to see that you can face your challenges I have to be real and allow you to see I face my own challenges sometimes.
Today I don’t want to get out of bed. But as of this writing it is 6:30 a.m., my coffee is making, I am writing this new post and I am planning my day.
I have to drop my grandbaby off at day care and then get my daughter to school by 9. Immediately after dropping her off I have a meeting to look at life insurance (I’m not getting any younger) then I am helping out a friend who needs a ride to run some errands. After that I have several errands of my own to run, at some point I need to take my dog to the vet. (I think he ate something that is making him sick) and then pick up baby at 3 and daughter at 3:30. And that’s truly just half off my day. I won’t bore you with the evening routine.
My point of telling you of that is this. I’m tired, depressed and really just want to curl up in a ball and stay in bed. But I’m going to get up and face life.
Whatever your going through will pass. Life is a series of ups and downs. It’s up to you to determine how you handle it. And how you handles it determines your outcomes.
See I have stuff that has to get done. If I don’t do these things they will just pile up on me and that in turn, will make me even more depressed and closed in feeling. So I will face today’s challenge, which is being extremely tired. I will challenge it by accepting what I need to do and I will conquer it by getting it all done. One step at a time.
At least at the end of the day I will have a sense of accomplishment knowing I completed my tasks.
Whatever your darkness is today, face it. Slay it. Find a task and do it. Get up, you got this!
I believe in you even when you don’t believe in yourself.
Face it, Challenge it, Conquer it!
