The scales have tipped and my balance has slowly been lost. It happens. When you stop taking care of your own needs and you try and please everyone around you, for awhile there is great satisfaction in seeing those around you happy but then it happens. You wake up on the wrong side of the bed. In fact it wouldn’t matter what side of the bed you woke up on, either side would have been wrong. It’s the fact that you woke up period that makes it a bad day. That’s not to say I don’t appreciate every day of the life I am given, I just have a really bad case of the grumps.
It’s important to remember to continue to do the things that keep you feeling peaceful and grounded. For me it is blogging, yoga, and at least a small amount of quiet time. Noise is one thing that kills my balance almost immediately. Especially constant noise like the television being on all day or the constant noise in my head when I fall behind on everything I know I still have to do. There is really no excuse for it and it is nobody’s fault but my own. I know all too well if you do not love yourself and take care of your own needs that you can certainly not exceed at doing it for anyone else.
Awareness of why you feel the way you do is the first step in resolving it. You always have a choice, to continue down the same miserable path that led you to feeling this way in the first place or getting back on the path that leads you to a better place. Hopefully you will choose wisely. I am going to give it my best try and hopefully I will be feeling a lot different at the end of the day.
