You know when you think you have things planned; when you’ve worked hard on a project or two while somehow still living life and taking care of the day-to-day responsibilities that come with family life? That is how I ended last week.
Things took a turn over the weekend. Nothing bad, just ended up spending time with my guys and not doing any of the work I planned to do.
Then I started some semi-serious nesting.
Then disappointment about something I’d worked hard on set in. Which got me to thinking about things I needed to do. Which, then got me to focusing some time and energy on figuring that out.
Not to mention the two time consuming appointments I’ve had this week – a meeting and prenatal travel/appointment.
The result: No blog work until today, right now, at this moment!
The overwhelm is now settling in. At least for now.
All of the Baby things left to do are overwhelming. I’m overwhelmed with the settling in of the fact that Turtle Baby will be here rather shortly. I’m overwhelmed with all that I need to do, which will (hopefully) stave off more disappointment with a particular project. All things motherhood and blogging and just doing are overwhelming, too.
This will change, these feelings of overwhelm. I’m sure of it. It always does. Yet, though today’s post is written and only needs pictures added, I’m overwhelmed with the task. Thereby leading me to this post here. The one in which I’m being honest and in-the-moment with you all.
This post which highlights my human-ness and fallibility.
This post, right here, when I admit no longer being on my “A” game this week and though I’m not calling it a wrap for the week, I am admitting that I’m taking a bit of time.
I need this time to re-prioritize, to plan, to write lists, to relax a bit, and to read. I’m taking a bit of time to refresh, to recover from the disappointment, to process. I’m also taking a bit of time to pass on my feelings of overwhelm to my Higher Power in order to clear my head and get back to my normally productive self.
I know we’ve all been here before at some point. Maybe today, maybe yesterday, maybe last week, or last month. Or maybe it’s been awhile for you, in which case, you give me hope. Thank you for understanding. Thank you for stopping by to read my thoughts and help me to have a voice today!
What are some things that help you to re-prioritize and organize when you’ve felt overwhelmed? What tips and tricks do you have to process disappointment?
