This picture has nothing to do with today's post...I just thought it was funny. So it's Sunday and of course I have tons of things I should be doing. I may get around to some of them because I feel like my mind is needing some organization to make things more clear. I really can't explain it, but I can't sit down to write decent lesson plans unless I clean and organize the room I'm writing them in. This may sound incredibly OCD, but I think that I suffered from that at one time and am now in full recovery. I like to think I'm organized, but sadly, I lack in this department. Perhaps if I just claim it...I can own it. It will sound the same.
I also have trouble with continual follow-through. For example, I know I should moisturize. I've got the ashy skin to prove it. I really try to do that on a regular basis and I do well for awhile but I eventually fall back into my unmoisturizing ways. There's a part of me that thinks that's incredibly decent of me....like maybe I'm not as vain and as self-centered as I know I am. I think what holds me back from doing all the things I should is the fact that I tend to have way too much on my plate all the time. A few friends have told me that there's never been a time when they didn't see me buried up to my neck in some type of stressful and self-imposed situation. Please remind me of this the next time you read a post where I'm talking about undertaking some huge project.
It would seem like I could talk myself of doing all the things I should be doing by simply stating that I'm not picking up any more stressful situations. But let's be real....if you know me, you know that I live on stress. It would be hard to untangle the core of my being with the stress, but it's something I'd like to try. Outside of living in a hut on a beach somewhere, I'm not sure where to begin. I don't like sand all over me, and I've never been a big fan of clothing made from coconuts. Any suggestions????
