I go through phases that are shitty, cranky inducing times of waking up WAY TOO EARLY. They always pass, but while it’s going on, it leaves me very tired and cranky. Which brings me to…
When Do We Actually Need To Be Resilient?
Having a lousy sleep before a Monday morning full of “inspiration” on the interwebs never bodes well for me. Inspiration tends to annoy me at the best of times. Waking up WAY TOO EARLY is not the best of times (in case that wasn’t obvious!)
I’m sure that there would be things you could suggest to me about not sweating the small stuff. About mediation. Mindfulness. Things that contribute to resiliency, good moods and a general better than a cranky state-ed-ness. But here’s the thing. When this is happening, I don’t want to. I want to be allowed to be cranky at shitty sleep.
I feel like there’s something missing in the balance of acknowledging your reality and seeking to improve your reality. Is resilience really for the small things or do need to save our bank of resiliency for the big things in life?
What are your thoughts on when and how resiliency is best used?
