This post will be short....I think.
As my title of my blog (the whole blog, not the post!) suggests, I'm always on the run. I thrive on chaos. At least that's what I have always said. Work is absolutely crazy and everything that is crazy about education right now all hinges on my position. My after school program is to start in 2 weeks, which means 3 more hours a day at work- but not doing MY work, but rather working with kids who need me and my staff. THIS is the work I love! Kids need people to care. I care. I want to see them succeed!
So why am I feeling like I live in chaos? Tonight for the first time we got a notice that we had overdraft fees.... something I've never had issues with. We don't know if someone hacked our account and took money or if I overpaid something? Generally this isn't something we worry about. Of course, banks are closed now so it must wait for tomorrow.
Tonight I saw SBM's post and I think some large revelations flooded into me. I need to decompress my life. I, too, have PMP issues. As she suggests, I Pile My Plate to keep up my image of being a good person in all aspects of my life.
I can't do it all and I have to stop believing I can. I have to know that being me is good enough. I don't need to over-do it to impress people. Sometimes less is more.
I just have to decide which things to purge. What makes me happy? What makes me healthy? One thing for sure- I WILL continue to swim, bike, and run. I am a better person when I do. I'm happier.
Let the purging begin?!
And since less is more.... I'm leaving this post at that.
