First, let me apologize for getting this post up sooo late! You see, I have been burning the candle at too many ends of late, loading more and more on my plate without regard for the realities of getting everything done. Which leads me to the title of this post…
Have you ever felt like your intensities have slipped into hyper-drive, both propelling you forward and running over you? Well, this is pretty much what I am experiencing of late. A new job, the “intense” time of year with the kids (you know, finals, AP testing, etc), exciting writing happenings…it has all combined to form this maelstrom that has, in all honesty, gotten away from me. And in the wake of this storm, my intensities have kicked into full gear, adding and oh-so-delightful flavor to the mess.
Grrr. Sometimes it is really hard being an intense adult.
Yes, things are positive and exciting overall. And yet, despite the happy feelings that generally go along with words like “positive” and “exciting”, I am finding myself feeling anxious, intimidated, and dare-I-say, fraud-like.
So, what do I do in moments like these? Inhale and exhale. And slow it all down long enough to wrap my brain around what NEEDS to be done versus everything else.
Yea, I know….I’ll tell you how that works out for me next week!
What do you guys do in moments like these? You do have them, right? ((Please say right))…
