Stress…The Road to Nowhere


I normally operate better under a deadline. I love having a lot of things on my plate. I guess never realized how much stress deadlines and having a lot of things piled on me affected my health. 

With my new heart problems, it looks as though I’m going to have to slow down a bit. Prioritize. Delegate so responsibilities to some of my older children and more capable family members, and even say no to some of the social events I like to become involved with.

While I was down resting and getting my heart rate under control and destressing, I felt useless and empty. My elderly father tells me from time to time that he feels the same way. Useless. Now I can relate. Not being able to enjoy doing the things you love because of your health can get you down. Make you feel like you’re in a pit of nothingness.

So we’ll both have to find ways to feel productive and not overdo it. Taking one day at a time instead of a thousand things at a time seems smarter.

So today I set out to be more organized and not let things pile up on me. And if I have to say the occasional no, the world won’t end.
