Let’s get down to the facts. This month has been a full-on challenge. Between illness, juggling too many jobs, the stress of launching a new business, the desire to please everyone, attempts to figure out finances in the face mounting medical bills (which will get taken care of eventually once the paperwork is finalized from my November accident), and struggles with one of my sons who’s facing difficult times right now I am completely wiped.
My usual reactions seem to have disappeared. My go-get-em attitude is lacking, my ability to cheer for people’s success isn’t as strong as it usually is, my patience is thin and most of all, my desire to kill it at the gym is just not there. I spend hours daily trying to figure out how to combat these things right now. Fortunately, having age on my side has given me the wisdom to know that these moments seem to come in waves. Things are hard for a while, I try as hard as I can to stick with them, and BOOM…things turn. That’s why I have the ability to appreciate the good moments, because I have my share of the bad.
