Hey y’all! It’s Destiny, the past week has been so stressful that I don’t even know where to start. It seems as though lately my life has been filled with stress, and I have to find a way that will truly help me and my well-being.
Monday lived up to the hype of Monday. It was such a bad day that I choose to block it out. All I remember is Starbucks couldn’t even help my day.
Tuesday was no better. I found out some information that just destroyed my world. I will tell you about it sometime in story form. It’s a definite scandal. I will tell you that Tuesday consisted of things being thrown, people getting hurt physically and mentally, along with a lot of heartbreak. What I learned from Tuesday? I learned that it is not easy being in a relationship. A relationship takes work and compromise. Nothing worth keeping is easy, it takes work and persistence.
Wednesday was a joyful/stressful day, but aren’t all birthdays? The youngest turned 7 and I cannot be more thrilled, the older they get the more independent they become. She got many presents and I gained 5 pounds by eating so much cake.
Thursday marked 5 years of a tragedy that still hurts to this day. Learning to cope with the loss of a loved one is still and always will be a learning process. Not one day goes by that I don’t think of her, but she will live on in my heart. The best way for me to have dealt with the loss was to keep occupied. I spent the day at an elementary school’s field day, and my legs are sore from all the running I have endured.
Friday has been a day that has screwed with my mental health. Have you ever felt like something is off? You don’t know what exactly is going to happen but you have a feeling that it isn’t something good. I have had that feeling all day, not knowing what was going to go wrong. At one point through the day, I couldn’t handle it anymore and just broke down crying. I couldn’t figure out what I did wrong, and why it felt like everyone hated me. After my crying session, I sat down and worked on my bullet journal. Writing the things I could control, the list included my thoughts, and feelings. I have to gain control. Or at least attempt to.
Have you had a day or week like this? Let me know. I know I am not the only one. Right?
