To be honest, part of me feels like complaining to you today. Part of me wants to tell you about all the things I have on my plate, how much I have to do in such a little time, and how anxious I feel because of it.
I really do want to lay it all out there and have a pity party.
But the truth is that I work for myself and I am a proactive person. So I have therefore chosen everything on my plate and I don’t have much ground to stand on. I’ve created my schedule or said yes to things that are happening.
My schedule didn’t fill up at gun point.
I allowed it.
So as I am working to process all that I have to do in such little time, I’m turning to a few key things that have helped me in the past. And if anyone else is feeling similarly stressed, I highly recommend trying some of the same things.
First, I am going to do some worry flashcards. These are great to help me dump my brain out, shake out the dead stuff, pray about the stuff I don’t have control over, and get to work on the things I can do.
Then, I’m going to re-read Turning Want To’s into Have To’s. That’s the mindset I need to have going forward. No whining allowed.
After that, I will be crafting a prioritized to-do list to get my weekly and daily tasks in order.
Anything that doesn’t make it on these lists will be left up to Future Jess.
Phew. I feel (a little bit) better already. I hope you have a great day!
