Deep breaths, Melissa. This has been my mantra for the past week. Everything is due at once. I love all of my jobs and business ventures, as well as my volunteer activities. I can usually juggle it all seamlessly…..until it pours.
A lot of my stress is self imposed. I strive for a level of perfection that is often not realistic. But I don’t do anything less than 100%. If that means I get a few hours less sleep, so be it. I can sleep when I am dead, right?
And then when I talked to my friend Jen on the phone this morning, I realized I have it a lot more together than I think. It will all be OK. Just a few more days, and these big projects will be completed. My progress is steady and deadlines will be met.
I must squeeze in five minutes to purchase a bottle of wine – to be opened when all of these items are checked off the to do list.
