I get into funks...I think we all do. It is very easy when we're so busy with life to get into the mind set of putting our head down and just getting it done. When I do that, I don't take the time to enjoy what I'm doing and I get out of a thankful mentality.
With the beginning of the school year all of my hats get put back on. There are some that get to be hung up a bit over the summer. This fall I'm a wife/mom/homemaker, teacher, active church lady...AND a student. This class has a lot of reading and a lot of papers---my favorite (please read as if said dripping with sarcasm). I had to give myself a pep talk. It worked. I came into this week ready to kick booty as an amazing modern day hybrid of June Cleaver, Mrs. Frizzle, St. Catherine Laboure and Hermione Granger. I'm going to do it all! Look good doing it! Do it well! And HAVE FUN while I'm doing it!! YES!!!!
...and then I get a cold...a stuffy head, have trouble thinking straight but still able to function cold...and I'm not kicking booty and staying on top of things like I wanted to this week. BUT, I'm still trying! I'm not giving into the HUGE desire to collapse on the couch in the afternoon. I'm trying to knock things off the to do list...and then collapse in bed early ;)
So all you June Cleaver, Mrs. Frizzle, St. Catherine Laboure, Hermione Grangers (substitute what fits your hats best!) out there, HANG IN THERE! YOU GOT THIS! YOU CAN DO IT! At least that's what I keep telling myself.
Okay, let's do this!
I can't forget that before I wore many of these hats, I was me. In order to succeed in my other roles I need to take care of myself too. This is a tough one because many of my other hats are more precious to me. I think many can relate to this.
