Happity Wednesday, Silver Hawk peeps!
I have to admit, today, that the coffee jolt is not happening. I wonder if I have hit that threshold where the caffeine can't overtake the fatigue. Or maybe, there is just so much to do that the energy expended can't be buoyed buy the jolt in that coffee cup. Another alternative is that perhaps I just brewed weak coffee. Maybe it's because it is Wednesday, and while we have finished some work from the beginning of the week, there is still more to do in order to round the rest of it off.
Could be any of the above.
Have you found yourself there, sometimes? Just meandering around in Uncertainville, or Tiredville, in some surreal and dreamlike state? I think that we can all say we've been there, and probably more than once. We work hard, and trudge along, only to find that once we finish one task, another may be looming out there and we find we just feel a little bit overwhelmed. Drained. Just not kickin' it.
The thing to remember is that this is okay! It's our own body's way of saying we might need to stand up, take a walk, and give ourselves a break. My daughter decided to bake this week, and that she would only use recipes that were from scratch. It was a much needed brain break, for her. What kind of thing can you do to give yourself a break? It could be reading. It could be taking a nap. It could be spending time with a favorite pet, or sibling, or friend down the road. An ice cold glass of water. Anything.
Ultimately, we need to remember to be kind to ourselves, these strange and freakadelic days. It's okay to step away for a moment. Relax. Breathe. And for reals...just laugh. Out loud, and with reckless abandon!
Take care, peeps!
