Slow Down Before You Breakdown


I saw this post on Instagram today and I thought it was perfect. I am currently helping a friend with her website for her business, finally trying to actively blog, writing and researching a book, working on a side business (pricing, name, social media for it), while subbing and looking for a teaching job. On top of that I am finally in a place where I actually want to see people and spend time with others because my mind is clearer than before but not exactly 100% (but let’s face it, no one has it completely together). I  am trying to keep track of my finances, looking for what gym to finally join, trying to make sure to check in on those who check on me and just praying I am keeping my head above water.

So I feel it is sufficient to say that there are days in almost every week where I feel a bit overwhelmed. This is not because I am unhappy with what I am doing, as that can be draining, but because there is just a lot on my plate. The crazy part is I wouldn’t change it for a thing. There is something rewarding about being a part of someone else getting their dream off the ground and it is a learning experience. I am starting to see the fruits of my labor. I see God opening doors for me because I was willing to walk in  faith a few months ago. I feel like I am growing as a person and as a woman. Plus I feel this is all a very small training for life in the future. I already know that I will be successful (speak it into existence honey) and with that being said busy is just a way of life. But how do I keep myself from falling apart? I find ways to decompress. I may go to a near by Starbucks with a book and take a hour break from my house, take time to play a useless game that allows my brain to rest, get in a quiet corner and just talk to God about what’s going on, make sure to go to church, do a devotional, listen to music, go see a random friend just because. The list could go on but the point is to do something for yourself that makes you happy. Even if it’s a 5 to 15 minute walk around the building or down the hallway, get away from your surroundings and regroup. It is so necessary to take care of YOU.

So ladies and gents, What do you do to keep yourself floating above water?
