i am stressed out. and i don't know why. i can feel the tension. i can hear the shortness in my voice. i am not quite to the non-sleeping place. but i'm getting there.
here's what i think it COULD be:
and i'm sure there is a litany of other things too, that are small and insignificant, but added up make a good ole stressball.
i am not sure how to fix it. i just am aware of the indicators that SOMETHING needs to change. the BIG indicator was yesterday when i was apparently speaking a different language to EVERYONE in my world. i had to repeat and rephrase and pick and choose my words with customers and friends. it was frustrating, to say the least, but also was a giant neon sign that when i am getting snippy with customers its time to take a step back. we don't want a repeat of the last few months of when i lived in SC. i was NOT a nice person.
so i've recognized it. now. how do i fix it?
i'm thinking a mini vacay and a margarita or eleventeen. but i don't drink. so. how do i fix it?
the feeling that the foundation is fine and dandy until some major issue gets talked about instead of assuming that everything is ok and it takes a block out and shakes the tower. the foundation is great, parts get wobbly when we BOTH dont use our words. and i will take a HUGE chunk of responsibility for that since i am the one that's getting into Stress Monkey mode.
