It Never Fails

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Each year, I try my best to be done with Christmas preparations within the first two weeks of December, if not by Thanksgiving actually. I want to be able to sit back and enjoy the season. It didn't work out that way this year. Life has definitely gotten in the way.

I did get the last of my Christmas presents Saturday and got them wrapped. I am grateful for that. But I have been so busy since Friday that it's ridiculous. I haven't had much time to think, let alone relax. I'm definitely a little stressed. And, of course, it has affected my body - as it always does. I've been having trouble with my back, issues with my throat and I have a bladder infection now. Haven't had one of them in a few years.

I am pulling out the stops today and trying to use every stress busting technique that I can think of. I may not be too successful today as I have a bit on my plate that must be done. I am reminding myself that I must do this and I am working on saying no. Some weeks are just harder than others.

    Yes, some weeks are harder than others! You can do it. Breath slowly and deeply! You can do it, you are relaxed!
