Over the past couple of weeks I have felt overwhelmed, cried to songs on the radio, wanted to turn around after it took me three hours to drive into Boston which is normally a 50 min drive and was pretty much in tears, as well as moments of begging for help from my Higher Power (God) to give me the strength and words to say to clients when I didn’t feel like I could help them. Does this mean I am having a breakdown? Believe me I sometimes feel like it!
But the breakthrough came when I realized that really I wasn’t taking care of myself like I am use to. I have not been taking moments for myself to just breathe. I remember this time last year I was pretty seriously training for my first ½ marathon ever. I made the commitment to go to the gym and research how to prepare my body to run that distance. This included rest, weights, and lots and lots of running.
So recently I have been attempting to get back to that type of mindset. Today I was able to start my day later and get some things done and end the day with a trip to the gym for a run. I’m not saying that I may not be having a breakdown, I’m just saying that I have had a break through. I need to take better care of myself. The breakdown may have to wait. Also if you lived near me you would see me driving down the road crying to songs on the radio like Rascal Flatts song “My Wish”. Remember I do have the last one graduating this year and I love this song!!!
So breakdown or break through?! Good news is that I’m moving forward and so could you!
