Running out of back burners on which to put my life

Friday, July 12, 2013

I just realized that I need to forego my Saturday yoga class & workout to go to the State Library and look up material for my class project. The DP will not be happy. He's already expressed frustration with my taking classes, not just in the summer but during the regular semester too.
I put a lot of nervous energy into my grades. I feel a sense of responsibility not only to myself, but also to the professors. I worry about disappointing them by turning in something of a lower standard than they expect from me based on my prior work. I also worry about disappointing MYSELF by not getting a grade of which I am proud. I'm in a field in which I do not have an undergrad background, which is starting to make me feel like I'm not the brightest crayon in the box.
Remind me why I did this?

    You did it to learn, enjoy life and better yourself and your earning potential maybe......It will all be worth it...

    I spent 2002-2008 getting my bachelors in business administration and my MBA in technology management, while working full time and being the sole breadwinner, it is a struggle but if I did it, I know you can do it too...It will all be worth it....

    your standards are your standards. I think they're part of what makes you you.

    Just like getting an education. That was a risk, a desire, a jumping forward for something that was inside of you.

    Although some might be frustrated, and it causes nervous energy, when you set your mind to something that you yourself chose to enter, you get just rewards. Much like fitness sometimes is frustratingly difficult, but almost always produces an intrinsic benefit, so will training your brain.

    Don't let too many things fall to too many back burners (those also make you who you are) but also, don't ever forget how strong, powerful, and amazing you are. And also that that woman made the choice to be there in the first place.

    Good luck!

    WE WORRY ABOUT TO MANY THINGS, WE ARE CREATURES OF HABIT AND LIKE TO KICK OURSELVES WHEN WE OUR DOWN, OR DON'T DO WELL. SOMETIMES WE SAT OUR STANDARD'S TO HIGH. MY ADVICE QUIT WORRING, YOU KNOW YOU CAN DO IT. TAKE A DEEP BREATH RELAX, AS LONG AS YOU DO YOUR BEST YOU SHOULD NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. DOING OUR BEST IS ALL WE SHOULD ASK OF OURSELVES.

    Is DP 'dear partner'? Unfortunately, we can't do it all and if you're stressing yourself out trying to balance everything, you'll have to clear off your plate a bit. I haven't been exercising as much as I used to/should either but I can only do what I can do.

    If it is your partner you're referring to..............oh well. He'll have to put on his big boy pants and let you live your life. If that sounds harsh, it's because I'm dealing with the EXACT same issue in my home with my husband. I'm not taking classes but he has been having a bit of a hissy fit because I have announced that I'm not longer doing everything he likes doing. I'm done riding on the back of a motorcycle and have decided to start getting back to activities that make me happy.

    Stay the course with your studies - that's something to be proud of. Good luck; I feel your frustration. Pat emoticon
