Dear Qui Talks,
I have been feeling really overwhelmed lately. Not only am I stressed that I haven’t been able to post on my website every single day like I normally do, but I have so much that needs to be completed and not enough time. I know this line sounds so cliché but when you are caught in this scenario its hard not to say it.
The other day, while riding the train I figured out what my life looks like right now. Do you remember those stretchy toys from the 90s that you and your friends would pull each limb in a different direction?
That is exactly what my life looks like right now. I am being pulled thin in every direction. My family has my right arm, my financial inequities have my left arm, my business has my right leg, and my sister’s wedding has my left leg. I know I am strong and won’t break but lately, I have been mentally and physically exhausted.
My attitude has been on a high and my energy has been all over the place. There are days I have everything under control and there are days I fall apart. Meditation and prayer have been lacking in my routine and I can’t help but think that is the reason I am unstable. However, when I try to pray and meditate, it is not genuine because my mind is still racing at 100 mi/hr.
If I can get my finances intact then I know all will fall together because that is the limb that is being pulled the farthest.
Talkers, how many of you have been in my position or felt the same way? What did you do to get back intact?
