First I want to say to everyone, your great, we’re great, I’m great, everyone is great! We have so much untapped potential and strength. I hope today you can find a way to tap into yours.
That said, today was horrible…
How many emotions can I have in a day? The last 24 hours has been a whirlwind of activity. I’ve been happy, angry, sad, depressed, anxious, joyful, near tears, so exhausted I ached and felt hopeless, anxious again, agitated, happy, depressed… I think that’s a good list and close to the order I felt them in today.
I’m agitated with life, I feel like stomping my feet like a 5 years old who wants a toy and is misbehaving by throwing a temper tamptrum. I can’t seem to catch up, the moment I am close everything slips from my fingers. For example, I will clean the house, and 10 minutes later dishes are pilling up, dogs have run dirt all over the floors and beds, got to do laundry again, oh wait, puppy decided to be bad and pee on the carpet. Uh oh, time for dinner now, more dishes, another hour in the kitchen, serve dinner, clean up.
For all my complaining I have been learning some very valuable lessons in time management. I’m a Navy man, task orientated thinking is my way of life, so is time management. I’ve always tried to be on top of how I use my time. For instance, put the kettle on the stove, that’s 8 minutes free to put butter in the butter dish, throw out left overs, take out the trash, run the water in the sink for dishes, and have a minute left to take a drink and breath before I start on my next 10 minute task. I try to keep this planned out before I start cooking, sometimes I wing it, but I waste more time winging it.
These lockdowns are driving everyone crazy, I hope we find a way to stop the spread soon.
