I threw a temper tantrum yesterday. It was small and semi-concealed and involved me talking to 2 supervisors, HR, and eventually my district manager (sister of a family friend) for a day off. I got ½ a day. Instead of 10 hours Sunday, I work 4. 🙃
At first I thought I was being a spoiled brat, and was super hard on myself; but then I realized I’m exhausted because I’m frustrated and I do a lot.
I have a YouTube, a blog, I’m launching a small business, and on top of that I’m now working 45 hours/wk at a job I don’t love. Don’t get me wrong, I love my life. But now I kind of feel overwhelmed. Extremely overwhelmed. And I kind of hate my roommate. Two thumbs up! 👍🏽👍🏼
I knew Alaska would test me, and I knew I would grow here, but for some reason I thought all the experiences would be fun. And when I realized it wasn’t all fun and games, I threw a mini temper tantrum, like a big girl.
I need to find a way to be happy in all the turmoil. I need to find something that rejuvenates me without needing 12 hours of sleep, because I just don’t have that kind of time anymore.
Do I run? Do I do yoga? Hiking is annoying because I don’t want to get eaten by a moose or a bear. (Or a lynx lol #AlaskaProblems). 🐻
What can I do for me that makes me want to wake up in the morning and not lock my roommate in the bathroom? What will give me enough energy to not need 3 cups of coffee per day?
I guess that’s this week’s goal…
I need to figure out what I can do for me that will make me happy in the midst of a torrential downpour and a lack of sleep. Yes, I’m dramatic, and I know this is just a really annoying and inconvenient storm that will pass in 3 months or less; so how can I get through this as my happiest, healthiest self?
Any ideas?? Let me know in the comments please 💛💛.
