When I was in college I was an "A" student. I was proud of my scholastic
record but there is one "A" I am not at all proud about. That's my
type "A" personality. I always have too much going on, too many
responsibilities I have agreed to and too much self inflicted pressure.
I skip meals, burn the candle at both ends and stress myself out.
As a consequence I have insomnia and phantom aches and pains. Lately I
feel as though I will crumble and shatter.
Very recently a friend discovered that she has a very serious health
issue. Her problem could well be life threatening.
I am praying that she will not have the dreaded "C". Her illness has
forced me to take a good look at my own situation. Why am I putting so much
pressure on myself? Why can't I learn to let things just slide a bit?
What's more important ~ my health or a self imposed deadline?
I am going to focus on learning to chill. So I took the first step today ...
I am actually allowing myself to take a four day weekend next month.
And you know what, I can't do ANY work at all for those four days.
Wish me luck attempting to chill.
