You know what will make me feel better? Writing a blog.
I have long been reciting to myself a mantra that sounds like this, “It won’t be like this forever.” I say it because I know that it’s true. I won’t always be pulled in a thousand directions, few of which I am passionate about, and being paid nada at a part-time retail job. But for now I am…
School : 15 hrs/wk
Homework: 15 hrs/wk
Work : 25 hrs/wk
VA for Rachelle : 5 hrs/wk
Ride the bus : 15 hrs/wk
Self-Care: 2-4 hrs/wk
Students Leadership: (PTK, Panel discussion board, Art Auction committee, SPOT committee, Literary Magazine Committee) 2-4 hrs/wk
That equals 84-ish hours a week.
Friends, Sleep, food, bathing, laundry…If I have time I fit those in. I also like to read magazines and watching 30 Rock.
My head is spinning. But this is how I fix it.
I write, do yoga, breathe, lay very still, eyes closed and breathe in and out. If I do these things everything in the first list is much easier and I am nicer and coherent and not having emotional breakdowns.
It won’t always be like this, I just need to breathe.
