Have you ever noticed how the closer you get to the home stretch of something, the more tired you get? I’m currently in the week of my finals, and I’m not enthused, not one bit! I should be excited that the semester is coming to an end, and I can finally get in a much needed break! Instead, my current mood is blah, and I’m just not feeling this! This is coming from someone who has straight A’s in all of her classes! (Pops collar and put shades on) 😁😎 Lol
Listen, I’m tired! It seemed like the first half of the semester, I was amped up! After midterms the enthusiasm got lower and lower, and now the week of finals, and I really feel like f&@# this s%#@!! Nah, for real, for real. There could be many factors that’s affecting the way I feel, but as I’ve said, after midterms, I’ve been over it. Y’all pray for me.
I need to get my mind right. A friend of mine told me that peppermint or cinnamon candles can help me find some serenity and regain focus. Perhaps, I’ll try that, but in the meantime I’ll say a prayer and sip some tea instead. I need some motivation to go ahead and knock these tests out, so that I’m done with that, then, and only then, will I be able to address these other issues that I have going on, which is affecting my ability to focus on the task at hand. That’s crazy, huh?
It would be logical to take care of the distraction first, so that I can give my full attention to the task at hand, but truth is, we don’t always have time, do we? Sometimes, the priority is, get the “job” at hand done, and do the important stuff later. It’s tough, but it’s life. It’s also how many people get caught up in being so busy getting the job done, that they forget to self care. We must take care of our mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health and not be so caught up in “taking care of things.”
How about, taking care of you! Well in this case, me! If we neglect one area, we will feel it in another, and that’s currently happening to me. There’s too much going on mentally, and not enough balance in all the other areas of my life. (Sighs) God, give me the strength to knock these tests out, so that I can shake off this dull energy and get back to my naturally optimistic, and ready for the world, self! I can do this, because I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength! In Jesus name. Amen. 🙏🏾
