Pep Talk to Myself.

Hang on self, you’ve got this.nap

I’m reading the self-help articles, deep breathing, trying to eat well, get my sleep, doing the things I love to create “balance”, think positively and all. But, still today, I don’t feel like I’m good at anything and frankly, I’m not sure I can do this at all. I’m a perfectionist. I want to be good at everything but there is a certain crushing volume that does not equate with perfection.

I wake up ready to face the day with greatness, get in to the office early, straighten things up, organize my thoughts and to do list…and, by 9:00 am I am seeking a vodka tonic in my mind. This can’t be a good sign.

I manage to redirect, push through, accomplish a lot of pretty great work and 10-11 hours later, I’m leaving feeling OK.  The day was a success overall with a few “dips in the road” and I leave determined to not let stress get to me tomorrow. So, I’ll read some more articles tonight, eat my chocolate with a glass of wine, pray, meditate, vent and focus, ready to tackle tomorrow and make a difference for someone.

I’ve got this. I have what it takes. I have what I need.

  1. No no no. Leaving 10-11 hours later is not “success”, my friend. It’s Crazyville. I’m a fellow overdoer saying you need to remember that no matter how much you do there will be more the next day. So give yourself permission to go home.
