Do you ever feel like you are never going to get everything on your list done? Like, there is so much on any given day, and whatever doesn’t get done rolls to the next day, but there is already a list there that would have taken the whole day? I am in that spot. I do not feel like I am ever going to get caught up or have everything done.
It seems the dishes are a twice a day chore, which then takes over the spot of something else…and the accomplishment of getting the kitchen all done a few weeks ago, yeah well it is now in the same state as it was before I started. So, when I wanted to be cleaning another room, I am back in the kitchen re-doing that.
In addition, I brought home real work, not Sacred Mists or housework, but actual essays that need to be graded, and some lesson plans that need to get written (I don’t see any of this happening). So I am behind in work, home and play. Feeling completely overwhelmed and like I can’t begin to take a breath, I want to just quit. Yep, you read that right, I want to quit.
However, that is not really an option, obviously. I am going to take the time to write the blog, meditate and re-center/ground and then take that energy and begin tackling everything that needs to be done. I can only do what I can get done, and I need to focus on the fact that I am trying. I will light a candle, start the diffuser and keep myself sane (I hope).
