I am not really sure why, but I have been in a bit of a funk this past week. Ok I do know why, but I can’t source it down to one particular incident it’s more like a game of Jenga. It started out everything in order as it should be and then myself and others took turns removing and repositioning bricks and now the tower is ready to topple. Funny thing is I think the Jenga game has been going on for much longer than I realized. But now that the tower is getting wobbly and I can look back in retrospect I can see it. And so I am finally admitting to myself that I am overwhelmed, over stressed and feeling depressed because of it. I am not wonder-woman, I cannot do it all by myself. I don’t want to do it all by myself and it’s now time to take action.
So I guess I’ve taken the first step; admitting it. Admitting that I am can’t do it by myself and that I am overwhelmed. Next I must remember to take it one step at a time and to move forward!
The song that really helped to uplift me this afternoon was Drops of Jupiter by Train. Maybe it’s the lines:
Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken?
Your best friend always sticking up for you even when I know you’re wrong
Can you imagine no first dance, freeze dried romance, five-hour phone conversation?
The best soy latte that you ever had and me
… they make me smile
