Got to Keep on Pushin’

Do I have to keep on pushing?  That’s what “they” say right?  It is the American way.  If you get knocked down, get up and try again.  If at first you don’t succeed, in it to win it, and all that jazz.

Well, hell.  I’m tired.  I’ve lapsed back into my procrastinating ways.  I am this close to just dropping out of this program and calling it a day.  I’m stressed.  I’m snapping off on everybody from Smoochy to the cafeteria lady.  I just want to quit.  When is it okay to just throw up your hands, throw in the towel and say “I’m through?”  Is it ever?  How do I teach my child the importance of seeing something though to the end?  How do I teach her tenacity if I don’t seem to have any myself?

I feel like a big fat zero.  Blech.

  1. Honey, everyone has one of those days. You are not a big fat zero. You are a brilliant strong woman who is a fine example to your child every day! You can handle whatever life throws at you. Take a minute, take a breath. Think for a second about why you’re doing all this. Look at all you have done to get where you are. Remember that you are DA BOMB. Now get up and go!

  2. Normally lurking and reading is my MO but this post spoke to me to the point of saying something. Everyone has these moments. No need in fronting. When they happen it is time for a shift because the fact that you are tired and feeling blah means you are doing too much. Our bodies often know best. Stop fighting against that feeling of tiredness and treat yourself like you would a friend in your current state that came to you. Stop resisting the feeling, feel it, and just let it be, and nine times out of 10 it will pass. Just breathe deeply and relax do not fight the feeling do not buy into it – just observe it and let it flow. Not sure what your spiritual tradition is but I often find asking my Higher Power (God) for wisdom – to understand and learn from this feeling being experienced. In short I ask what is this trying to teach me and then just be still and relax. Examine it like an artifact – ask what is it trying to tell me and then just listen. Often a truth will be revealed or at least the truth of who I am my value and worth aside from this negative – down patch.

    Peace be with you. This too shall pass.

  3. Lisa & SMH –Thank you both so much for your encouraging words. I truly appreciate them – and you. I stopped – I took deep breaths – I prayed. And I am in a better place for it today. Thank you again!

  4. Glad to see you’re better today.

    As far as keeping on…Try to make it to the end of the session and then take a break. Being a full time mom, full time wife, and full time employee takes a toll on the strongest of us. There is nothing wrong and all that’s right about taking a semester to recharge.

  5. I know my comment is late, but I hope you’re out of the funk you were having the other day. Everyone has these days, but “pushing on” is the cliche that works! 🙂
