I took a little break to get my mindset right for my new job. Being in a new environment takes some getting use to. I’m still learning names and faces, terminology and acronyms (military loves some acronyms), and where to go and not to go. So while soaking that in, throw in a travel for training, travel for leisure, and fighting all this pollen. One of my extracurricular activities had to take a seat for a bit. Sometimes taking a break from what you want to do in order to do what you have to do is part of the definition to the word “adulting”.
Now that I’m grown, I understand why my momma was tired when she got home. As a hard headed boy, I wasn’t helping; I was just adding fuel to her tired fire. (Probably why I got whoopin’s alot. Thanks Ma!)
As an adult, trying to balance what life throws at you is already tough enough; trying to add the things you want makes it tougher. Between work, work related events outside of work, married life, social life (what’s left of it), exercising (lol), house cleaning, parenthood, your child’s social life, outside the house work, laundry (ugh), folding laundry (more ugh), putting laundry where it goes… yea right, it stays where I folded it. Oh, can’t forget to eating healthy, drink enough
liquor water, did I mention 8 hours of sleep…blah, blah, blah…. that list could go on forever and sometimes you tell yourself, “There’s not enough time in the day.” And sometimes there ain’t… (yep… ain’t)….
But that’s life… As we grow older, our responsibilities change. And as our responsibilities change, things that once were important now take a back seat until we find that balance.
So if you think you’re struggling with life’s lemon, don’t fret. You are doing just fine. (Say it again for the people in the back)
You are doing just fine.
We are all in this together. If you need help, ask. Don’t be afraid to ask for assistance. If you need to skip that after work function, do it. If you don’t want to put that folded laundry in the drawer tonight… no, go put it up 🤣🤣🤣
Take care of yourself first is what today’s rant was about. Adulting is hard, but you have everything you need to make it easy!
