For the past three days, I have had a massive tension headache that would just not go away! Finally, this morning I called in sick and spent the day working from home. I got my work done, straightened up around our condo, took a few breaks to get a few wedding things done, made myself healthy meals at home and had peace and quiet to myself. It was exactly what I needed! Thankfully, my headache is finally starting to subside and I have found my perspective.
Today I realized that is has been just over four years that I graduated from college. Three years to the date ago today, I met Rich. And two years to the date, I started my first position at my current company. A lot has happened in the past few years, but when I take time to look at all that I have accomplished and the place I’m at in my life right now, I realize that it’s a really, really good place to be.
So, for the next four months, I know things are going to be crazy. I know that I will get overwhelmed and stressed. But, I’m making a promise to myself to take a step back when things get too crazy, to take some weight off my shoulders and be proud.
Now tell me, what do you do when the stress of busy life gets to be too much weight on your shoulders? How do you take a step back and find perspective? Please share with me!
Have a great Thursday night!
