OK, Kate. Don’t freak out. Keep calm.
Yes, you have a lot to do.
Yes, you have a lot on your plate.
But stay positive.
You can do it!
Oh, my goodness… no I can’t!
Yes you can!
Sometimes it is just all so overwhelming though…
I know. But you’ll get through it. You always do.
Really, is all of this really worth my time?
Of course it is!
Am I really managing to stay afloat?
Barely… but you ARE keeping your head above water.
Sink or swim baby, sink or swim…
It just feels like there are a lot of people and projects relying on me. It’s such a struggle to swim against the currents of time.
But that’s life, that’s not going to change, everyone feels that way at times, not just you.
I. Am. Exhausted.
Yes, but you’re happy.
Being exhausted is NOT the same thing as being unhappy. It’s hard work – your life, your kids, your family, your marriage, all the responsibility… but the best things in life don’t come easily.
And underneath all the exhaustion is happiness.
(long breath… short pause)
I suppose your right…
When you feel exhausted, you are allowed to take a break. Really, you are!
You are allowed to rest your brain and body. Really, you are!
And, you are aloud to relax… and you need to relax.
I know. I know.
I can do this.
Thanks for the pep talk.
Anytime. That’s what I’m here for.
P.S. When all else fails, think of this.
