Overload!

Overload

Good Morning Everyone!

This post is coming a little late because frankly, I couldn’t for the life of me think of an earth shattering, highly inspiring, wonderful story to share. I’m thinking maybe because my brain is on such overload that it’s frozen? Ever felt that way? Sometimes I wish that I could just plug my brain in and download some of the unneeded items. I know I’m getting older, but I sure seem to be forgetting a lot of things lately. My cousin posted in Facebook yesterday about going to do something, getting distracted, doing about 6 other things and by the end forgetting what it was she was originally going to do. I had to laugh because that is so me! Sometimes I try to figure out, am I ADHD, or just on overload. And then I go over my schedule in my head and I think it’s overload. I have so many things rolling around in my brain to keep track of that I think I do just end up in overload. Having a job with unpredictable hours and never knowing if the schedule is going to go as planned: trying to work in seeing my 4 grandchildren; trying to figure out how and when I can get back to Georgia to see my other grandchildren; trying to make the older kids softball/baseball games and work getting in the way; how am I going to get the house cleaned, outside stuff done and don’t forget the laundry. I have my own lunch to pack every day which for some reason seems to take a long time. And there we go, what am I going to put in that lunch, because last night I got home from work at 8:30 which meant no dinner, so no leftovers. Heaven help me if I actually had children at home to be taking care of. Kudos to the mom’s out there doing this and taking care of kids. My daughter called at 8:00 last night and I said I was “resting.” She asked why I would be napping at 8. Well, it was so I could stay awake until bedtime. In addition to all of the above I also have something called fibromyalgia which causes chronic pain and lack of sleep, and that is a whole other story. So see? This is why I want to “download” some of this. My brain just feels full. Despite all of this I really try hard to never forget to hav fun. Having fun is so important. It IS a priority to me. (Refer back to getting house cleaned, laundry, etc. not getting done because I will always pick fun!) My sister is such the opposite of me. She is organized and cleans a lot. I asked her the other day, why are you cleaning again. Isn’t there something more fun to do. It seems she doesn’t always get enough fun. We constantly try and plan things but just can’t seem to find time.

Okay, so where am I going with all this? I told you it would be rambling. It’s my life right now. Do I dream of having all the time in the world to do what I want, when I want…well sure I do. But truthfully, after a few days of that I would probably be bored to death. This is who I am, who I’ve always been and probably will always be. After all, every day this is what I try and teach my clients. Be who you are. You are the boss of you. Take care of yourself and ALWAYS be sure to put some fun in your life.!

I just wonder if anyone else out there can relate with these ramblings! Maybe I will consider those lists my sister is always talking about…maybe it would help…but knowing me, I would just lose the list!!

I hope you all have a great day!!

P.S. Forgot about keeping up with social media, keeping up with my little games and trying to keep the 2000 emails out of my inbox!!!

  1. Skip the house cleaning and laundry, social media and emails and just go have fun! Summer is short – you can clean and FB when you’re stuck in the house this winter. 🙂

    • You are right, we need to take advantage of every single minute of the gorgeous weather in Michigan in the summer! It passes all too quickly!!
