At this time in my life, I can say it’s a half and a half on my plate. At work, some days are more stressful than others however we have smiley days, too. In my personal life, I have been calmer. I’m taking Meds for the past two years for depression and I’m still working on a few issues.
I have learned to be careful who I have around and to separate myself from the ones who cause a toxic environment. Including a few family members. I did cut down on social media and deleted a few accounts. It’s been helpful.
I’ve learned how to handle the unhealthy situation and certain days can be challenging. I do have lovely days where my mind feels calm and peaceful. I have my “me time” and “quiet time” where I’m reading and journal. Play days with my grandkids and quality time with my husband.
The holidays have arrived and with the holidays the stress can fill my plate extremely fast. I simply need to take the time to breathe. It can be a challenge.
