1. I meant to do a “Thursday Things” but now it’s more like “Frazzled Friday” and gee, what kind of headline is that?
“Frazzled Friday” is the state I’m in and I don’t like it. Over Christmas I began taking a powerofmoms e-course Mind Organization for Moms, a program I actually won (Instagram contest!) and it is FANTASTIC. The first step is organizing your email so that every night you have an empty in-box and you can go to be as peaceful as a breeze.
Guess what? PEACE! Really. For days I kept on top of email and the calendar. I was calm, in control of life, and was more patient and happy.
What a great feeling. What an enlightening moment.
And then real life began. School started, schedules barked, kids got sick, and last night I went to bed with 45 emails, too exhausted to “deal.” I realized how I’ve begun to think that “anxious” and “over-scheduled” is normal.
This is not healthy.
I obviously need to “buckle down” and finish the other six organizational lessons. (time! time!) Either I’m doing too much or I’m not organizing life as efficiently as I could, because this anxious state is not good for me. Or the kids.
Poor things. I actually clapped at them like a crazed-sideline coach this morning: “LET’S GOOOOO!”
Anyhoo, (deeeeep breathe…) hope you’re doing well!
Are you healthy? The humans that live in this house are coughing and dropping like flies. I’m drinking green smoothies like nobody’s bizness. May I also suggest this immune-boosting hot drink:
