I enjoy my life most when it is slow, days are long, and my times with loved ones are able to be cherished. These past couple of days have been just the opposite of that! Something everyday is coming up it seems like. I forgot something at the grocery and have to run back the next day ( we live in the country), car problems on top of car problems, sweet toddlers getting down with the flu. On and on and on it goes! I mean I literally feel like my eyes are covered with sandpaper, sorry for the gross impression, from being so exhausted and needing a good nights rest.
So here I was today, slamming my door from just getting some bad news. You know slamming a door just seems to make it all better but now I look back and see that this is what an adult temper tantrum is. Then my daughter cries, and I just want to melt where I am standing then I catch myself in this moment. This moment of despair. Like all the things right in the world all are wrong all of a sudden. And I stopped. I stopped and started to take deep breaths. I put the bad news aside, cleared my head, drank a big glass of water, threw oversized pants on and crawled in my two year olds bed with her to read books and snuggle.
Yep I feel better now.
This happens to all of us. At some point in the day, or week, or year (if your lucky) you feel like your climbing a mountain in a sense. So what do you do?
Their will always be another problem to fix, or another sickness to fight. Their will always be a time where the dishes are piled up, your house isn’t super clean, the kids are fighting.
But there will never be another now.
I tend to forget that sometimes. Today was not one of those moments. And I am proud of myself for catching my despair and dealing with it because let me tell ya, I was on freaking out!
Crawling into bed with my wee one for snuggles was amazing. It made me feel more rested and less worried.
So yeah that was today, and now I am chipper as can be thank you very much! I turned on my jams, watched Evelyn run and dance, and then went to go cook or clean something!
What do you do when things get crazy? Any techniques to try out before my next meltdown?
