Post-event let down

Sunday, June 09, 2013

You know when you work so hard for an event, planning, details etc and then it's over and you feel sort of lost and maybe a little blue?

That's how I feel today.

But I'm reminding myself exactly what it is - I worked really hard last week on getting prepped for daughter's graduation, now it's over and it's time to refocus.

I finally figured out what I need to refocus on this morning. There are a lot of options, not the smallest of which could be my partner's graduation party this Saturday for earning her Associate's Degree...but what I really need to focus on is..

me.

I've gotten in the habit of putting myself last again. You know, that's okay occasionally - but it's become "the norm" the last couple of months. Time to shift some focus back on my health, my art, my happiness.

Being an adult is so full of responsibility...and unfortunately, I have a little problem with being too responsible. If others can't do it all, I pick up their slack. The problem is - that becomes "normal". Suddenly, I'm not only responsible for myself, I'm responsible for others stuff too - I see this in myself at work especially but also at home. When you do too much for others, there is no time to do for yourself.

This requires some gentle but firm reshuffling of responsibility. Yes, I'm talking to myself here, LOL.

So today is back to refocusing on my own life and health, my happiness, my self.

    Congrats on the graduation events! Those are big milestones in their lives and yours too. Hope you get more focused on yourself again - it's hard to do. Take care and have a great week.
