Many can tell when something is wrong with me. I tend to be a pretty easy person to read. Although nothing major is wrong with me, I have been in a funk lately. I funk about life, a funk about writing, a funk about work, and maybe most of this is due to my lack of sleep. I notice on the nights my sons go to sleep on time, no later than 8:30pm for me then I am happier and have this positive energy about me. Those kind of nights only happen a couple times a week, if I am lucky.
Lately I have been feeling like I am running in circles and the world is just spinning faster and faster. It has been difficult for me to slow my talking down and I am rambling more again. I know what I need to cure the funk I am in; sleep, exercise and socializing with adults. Those three always seem to help! Heck even if I don’t get more sleep as long as I get my daily exercise in and get out with adults every couple of weeks I am good to go!
I keep putting so many other people before me, I don’t know why I do this, it’s just my nature it seems. As I watch how putting others before me makes me feel, I realize it is time for me to start focusing on me. My children always come first, they need to but if I am neglecting me then they are in a sense being neglected of the positive mother they deserve!
It’s time to start putting me somewhat first because it’s important to the positive energy this household normally has!
