This afternoon I am feeling rather down and deflated, emotionally. The motivation to get things done that I had this morning has practically disappeared. I have a decent amount of things I need to get done today, and I’ll try to take it a little slower so I won’t feel so overwhelmed. I’m going to be practicing some DBT today (I try to practice daily), and that will hopefully help. I think I feel depressed for a few reasons. One is that today is my husband’s sixth day in a row having to work, and I miss him. He is off work tomorrow, though, and I am glad for that. Another is that my to-do list for the day seems so long, and it’s stressing me out. I’m depressed because I am fairly stressed out over my to-do list, and I don’t have many complicated things on there to take care of…so, I feel silly for being so stressed out. Still, the list seems insurmountable. The other reason for the depression is how tired I am. I feel pretty exhausted and I haven’t done a whole hell of a lot yet today. I am even more lacking in motivation because of the tiredness. I might nap soon, and I probably should.
I’m fairly certain that if I just start doing a couple of the things on my list I will start to feel a little better. I have already done a few things today, and I’m glad for that. The positive here is that the list isn’t as long as it was this morning. I also inevitably added a few more things to my list this morning. Normally the way I tackle my to-do lists is I try and take care of the things I least want to do first, so that the rest of the day seems a little easier. Today, I might need to start with doing the smaller things first so I feel like I have accomplished something. That could get the ball rolling a little bit. We’ll see. I’m sure I’ll be able to do at least most of it, eventually.
I came across something really cool on one of the flow arts supply companies I adore. They have applications to either become a brand ambassador or a sponsored hooper. I’m not great at hooping, but hell, maybe I could still apply. I could potentially get a lot of really cool perks and discounts. I’m thinking about contacting them for more information. That would be really cool to get paid for doing something I love, much like my Etsy shop.
Well, I’m gonna get up and start getting a couple of things done here and there.
Hope you all have a great day.
Stay insane, friends
