Mental Health Day.

I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed by my life lately. I was looking forward to a relaxing weekend spending time with someone special to me this week but sadly, that’s had to be postponed. So in a different sort of way I hope this weekend will be a bit of a mental health weekend for me. I have much to get done and places to be but I’m still hoping to find some time to pound out a few frustrations at the gym, read by the pool, and wrap my head around some new developments in my life.

I look forward to the fast providing my some clarity as I continue to try to streamline my life. I feel a little bogged down in some white noise of distractions lately and I need to cut that away so I can really focus on what matters. I never want to be too busy ‘doing’ to remember the point of what I do. I’m fighting that a bit lately. I don’t want my life to be to do lists full of check marks but some weeks that’s how I get the job done.

Do you ever have those moments when you feel like you have nothing to give the people who are trying to take the most from you? That sounds odd but the truth is with my closest friends it never really feels like work, our friendships are rather seamless and comfortable. It’s kind of the next ring of friendships that can feel draining at times. You pour into your closest friends and sometimes there just doesn’t seem to be enough left. Am I the only one who gets that feeling?

That’s when I know it’s time for a mental health day. I’m giving myself that today.

I know what you mean. I actually feel like my friends are an obligation a lot of the time. It's tough trying to keep everyone happy and have them all feel like you've given enough. It's why I'm cranky most of the time. :)
