Do you ever just have those day where your innards just feel like a six-way tug-of-war is going on inside? (Yes I just said innards.) Today was like an awesome version of it, but my stress levels have gone past the good stage and into the bad stage.
You know what I’m talking about? This morning I got several good emails that meant I could move forward on a project I’ve been really excited about. The response I got was way better than I expected, so my day got 500% better. But then all the “Okay, MOVE,” stress that went with that, plus planning for my trip on Tuesday, plus trying to do school, plus having to hang with the b**ch of Ebay today have gotten me all in a tizzy. A good one, because I’m excited about everything (except statistics), but I just need space.
My phone has been going off every other second because the girls and I are trying to figure out the last minute details for our trip. And I meant to be active on social media today because I’ve been trying to get better about that. And my 98 on my Bloglovin icon on my browser isn’t helping either.
Just as Statistics was starting to become more than I could handle, I stopped. I needed a break. I needed to just relax, do things I love, and feel like things are quiet again. I should probably throw my phone into my closet and leave it there for the next 30 minutes, actually.
Do you have these moments? I’m starting a personal challenge this week to journal regularly. I’m going to Colorado with some of the best people I’ve ever met in my life and I get to meet one of my heroes and I get to meet my coach and I get to meet new CollegePlus students and I get to experience Denver and I get to work on CPE3 stuff too! Like this will be one of the most memorable weeks of my life! So I’m giving myself the goal to journal at least three times this week. I think it will be good for me. I don’t normally keep on keeping on with journaling. It’s one of those things my mom always made me do that I hated. But I want to do it now to let myself relax, recoop, and remeasure my strength (how’s that for alliteration?).
What do you do to escape from the stress (good or bad) of life?
If you’re going to journal too, let me know in the comments below! I’ll do an update on how it went next week.
And of course, stay tuned for my new blog that will be launched hopefully next Wednesday! I just bought the domain today, so now I just have to build it. Can’t wait for you guys to see it!
