I saw this re-tweeted and posted on several other blogs and just had to post it as well – as a reminder to myself. We’re trying to get our house on the market and I’ve made myself nutso by setting hard deadlines, trying to do it all, and stressing, stressing, stressing.
In the midst of all of the packing and staging and cleaning, I took a quick 4-day girls’ trip with a friend to Playacar, and it was perfect – I got a massage, read by the pool, swam in the ocean, and talked about how I was making myself a wreck. So this is the perfect reminder to breathe slowly. Ask for help. Tackle things in manageable chunks. Don’t let arbitrary deadlines rule my life… Etc.
Take what you like from this – I think there’s something that will speak to each of us.
