Yesterday was a very busy, challenging day for me. I don’t know if you can relate to the type of day that seems to be hard to get through. It’s the kind of day that you realize you might just have too many plates up in the air and that some might be crashing soon. There were too many loose ends, too much ambiguity in the projects I was involved in, and not enough joy to celebrate the victories. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?
So this is not a “how to” blog. It’s just a confessional post.
I’m going to own the responsibility for my crazy busy, joyless day. Maybe I’m over committed, or not sleeping enough, or not eating enough, or not eating enough of the right stuff, whatever. I’m not sure yet what the answer to my dilemma is, but I’m going to figure it out, and soon.
But here’s what I’m not going to do. I’m not going to be in a bad mood and take it out on those around me. That’s usually what I do. I get hyper critical, irritable and question everything and everyone. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it’s not fun, I hear.
So, I’m writing this for myself and for those who have to deal with me today.
If you see me getting crabby today, please remind me of this post.
How do you deal with frustration?
