oh hi anxiety, I see you there!

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

anxiety is a tricky bastard... sometimes I don't know that it's there... that's when it has the biggest effect on my life. I've been focusing lately on how much I haven't gotten done. I try to remind myself of how much I have done, but that niggling feeling of inadequacy is there hiding out in the shadows - making me tired, giving me excuses to avoid things, which of course makes it all worse. So I'm calling it out - I see what it's doing and I don't like it. I need to recognize what it is that I'm afraid of and come to terms with those things. Right now it's kinda a long list, that's ok, I've got a lot of crazy big things going on right now so it makes sense that the list would be long.

I came across a website today and it was helpful to read through it, very helpful - so I'm putting the link here so I can come back to it later if I need it.

    How timely is this? Brooklyn_Born cited your blog as inspiration for her latest, so I had to check out your site. Just yesterday, I was stressing over my messy house when DH got home from work, thinking he was wondering what in the world I did all day. Frankly, I had to stop and wonder, too, because the decluttering just didn't all get done. So I forced myself to take a step back and think through what I did with my time that wasn't visible. What I found was surprising and gratifying.

In addition to making time for a 3.8-mile power walk, ST, and a short yoga practice, I did ALL the laundry and put it away, ironed and put away those clothes, cleaned out the jammed kitchen desk drawer and cleaned off a space on the desk top, changed out the litter boxes, cleaned and refilled the cat's water fountain, cleaned cat barf spots on the hallway carpet, cleaned all the bathrooms, collected and bagged the recycling, took out trash, balanced the checkbooks and paid bills, racked bottles of wine taking up space on the floor, placed orders for coffee and cleaning products, attended to administrative items for a club, cleaned off a spot on the breakfast table so I could work on those admin items. Ahhhh, makes me feel better for looking back at what I accomplished.
