I’m clawing up the walls.
Life is just a bit hard right now and I’m struggling through it. The good news is that I’ve been there before and I know it does get better. I just need to ride out the bad for a little while.
I’m trying to pick my mood up by listening to music today at work. I appreciate that I’m lucky I have relative freedom at work to do such things. But while it is making me feel better, it’s also making me feel really better – I want to go run, bike, walk, write, create, be challenged. Basically it’s working. But work is not the place to be happy. Because, for me, being happy means being out and about, not at a desk.
It’s hard right now to find the balance between self care and obligations. How do you manage this?
