Today was just one of those days. It started out that way and it’ll likely end the same. Today I was feeling good and sorry for myself. I felt like I took hit after hit and couldn’t recover.
I’ll be honest, in my daily life, I will put forth 100% in everything I do. The very definition of an over-achiever. I do everything I can, every single day to make other people feel good. It’s in my nature. I greet as many students as I can when they enter the clinic in the morning, and I smile as often as I want. It feels good. I’ve noticed my wrinkles getting a little deeper by the day and my eyes not being as open as they once were, but I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later…
This week has been a challenge in my personal life. Behavior issues with one of my children, family that has fallen ill and other relationships that are seeming to change without my control. This week is a struggle to stay happy and motivated. It’s a struggle to manage those things that are out of my control. It’s a struggle to parent. It’s a struggle to know if I’m making the right decisions.
At least today is the first day of spring. Winter be damned.
