Filling My Emotional Bucket
Sunday, November 17, 2013
This weekend my emotions have just hit the proverbial wall. I am usually a very mild-mannered, "nothing gets me down" kind of gal. I help others when I can, and try to practice "do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
I have felt this coming for a while, and tried to do something about it. Walking - preferably outside - has always been a great help in the past and doing so has probably helped me not to flatten out like a pancake on the wall.
However, I feel like I have had a slow leak in a bucket and I need to find a way to keep everything from draining out. And I hate, hate, hate feeling like that. It sounds so melodramatic, and I have had quite enough of that this year.
I need to find a way to plug the hole or at least find a way to start adding to the bucket.
I need to find a way to say "I have had enough" rather than feel that others are coming once more to "good old Tammy", or at least I need to find a way not to resent it. Or perhaps I just need to give myself permission to not be Super Tammy today and after a good sleep tonight I will likely feel better.
Yes, I think giving myself permission to not be Super Tammy today will be just the ticket!
