So yesterday I woke up at 5am, I taught a class I then worked a full day in my ‘real job’ I then raced home then taught another class and got home at 9pm.
For a brief moment, I wondered why I am so tired and then I remembered the last few weeks, and several days like the one above so…….
Today I slept in, I worked a full day, I raced straight home and I wrote my blog story about stress. I wrote without really thinking, I let my fingers touch the keyboard and allowed the words to pour freely.
After I finished writing, I read over it (yes the very least I could do) and then I hit publish! Satisfied, I was finally doing things for me, and not for everyone else, I went to cook a steak for dinner and poured myself a larger than mid-week serve of wine.
As I was cooking I decided as tired as I am I need to decide right now, to make this tiredness, and underlying sadness disappear. I threw on my comfy pants, I drank more of the wine than I should have in one gulp, I cranked up the music and I sang my little heart out.
I cooked and I danced around my kitchen, and I swigged my wine like the true classy lady that I am. I then belted out some rockin tunes at the top of my lungs, I am not a good singer (lucky I can dance!) so sorry to my neighbours but singing is therapeutic and singing at the top of your voice is a free and euphoric feeling.
Don’t be confused here, despite my delicate’ sips’ of wine, I am not drunk, I am however practising what I preach; I am eliminating some of the stress by doing things I love; eating, drinking,dancing and spending a night in by myself being foolish.
So stress, our relationship is momentarily over – I dance you out of my system and you can go now! I choose to ignore you now, I choose to leave you behind. Good times I raise my glass to you, I drink to happiness and moving forward.
I lie on the couch and I write this, and I plan on watching tv and having an early night and I leave you with a huge smile on my face.
