{And Now We're Stressed Out}

This has been one of the most stressful weeks of my life. I don't even know how to define it, really. It just feels like everything that could go wrong, did. And more.

I have to work a full time job. And a part-time job. And go to meetings at church. And work on getting all the posts up on the blog, edit them, and make sure that everything looks fine. I have to do the social media for the blog. (not complaining...just sayin')  I have to make sure that everything's done just right.

I'm also one of those people who stresses about stress before there's even stress to stress about. I work myself up over little things that probably aren't even worth it.

But the stuff I listed above...that's stuff I have to do - it's stuff that's a part-of being an adult. You have to work. You have to do your responsibilities.

And then I think back to when I was a kid and DREAMED of being an adult. Dreamed of what it would be like to have freedom and be able to do whatever I wanted whenever I wanted. It seemed like such a novel idea at the time. Like, being an adult was the coolest thing in the whole world.

And while it is pretty cool most (some) of the time, there are days I wish I could go back to being a carefree (mostly) teenager without any worries other than what I was going to wear that day (which was usually pajamas since I was homeschooled.)

I'm not good at de-stressing. I am really good at worrying. I am really good at overthinking. 

But this past Thursday, I left for a vacation. Going to Florida to visit my grandparents and get some time away.

Sometimes we all need that - time away from our stressors to breathe and get a new outlook on life. Maybe it's not always going to be a vacation. Maybe it might just be taking a day off work to just sit around and read a good book while drinking coffee. Maybe it's a Saturday where you forget everything that went wrong that week and you go on a small shopping spree. Maybe it's a good cry ('cause sometimes you need to). 

Take a break from those things that stress you out - you'll be glad that you did.
