Express Christmas

Thursday, December 29, 2011

I'm in the middle of what feels like the most stressful week of the year for me. Although, just as the grass always seems greener on the other side of the fence, a stressful week always seems like THE MOST stressful week ever. So, who knows? In any case, I'm coming off of the natural "high" from the holidays, which makes me a little sad. We bundle so many get-togethers and events leading up to Christmas. It's crazy and hectic, but also very fun and magical. Then, afterwards, I'm dumped into my "End of Year" craziness at work. However, unlike the holidays, with work there is no hectic/magical balance at the end of the year; just busy, hectic, crazy and more hectic. Everyone wants this or that done before the year-end, and unfortunately I'm still as behind as I was all year long, so these deadlines are impossible. And, I'm not talking the "I'm Possible" kind of impossible; I mean impossible impossible. Some stuff will get done and unfortunately a lot will not. So, I will probably spend most of the week just stressing out. At least now I have exercise to quell some of the stress rather than the go-to tub of ice cream I've used in so many past years. Anyway, this is just a quick "poor me" post to get it off my chest. Maybe a cup of herbal tea and a good night of sleep will have me singing a different tune tomorrow morning... I can always hope!

    I was challenged in another team just before Christmas not to sweat the small stuff. I figure for you it's all about priorities. Do the most important thing and the rest can be categorised small stuff. If you're not going to get it done sweating it will make no difference. For myself I've taken the advice on board and have found that life is so much better if I don't let the everyday stuff bother me. I'll do my best and that's all I or anyone else for that matter, can hope for or expect. Unlike some I'm not a miracle worker.

    Hope you get all the non-negotiably urgent stuff done in time but if not, I'll sit back and have a soda and lime with you to drown our sorrows. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hope today is better for you. I can truly understand and agree with you. End of fiscal year really needs to move to some other time of year. Work is work and there will always be stuff to do. The to do list is never ending and overwhelming most days. But hang in there. Some days are better than others and with positive thinking we shall get through it.

    Enjoy the last days of 2011!
