This is who I’d liken myself to recently.
Running here, there & everywhere these days… from errands to commitments to a concert to dinner with a friend to pulling some incredibly long days… only one day this week did I crawl into bed before 1:00 AM.
Some of the hecticness is for fun; some outta responsibilities & duty; some due to my procrastinating; and some just because.
Some tell me I overextend myself; some say I need to prioritize; some say I should practice using the word “no.”
Those who know me best know I generally function very well under pressure. At times I think I thrive on stress. Honestly, sometimes I even create more stress for myself without even realizing it… it just happens to be a big part of who I am.
Some of my best papers written were finished at 4 AM.
Some of my best crafty projects weren’t finished until 2 hours before it’s to be given as a gift.
Some of my most productive days extend through the evening into the weeeeeee hours of the morning.
This is how I’ve always been for as long as i can remember.
I don’t necessarily foresee this changing in the near future either. I have good intentions; I just end up scheduling too many things in one week or let a few too many deadlines approach too quickly without paying much mind to them.
It all gets done eventually…who needs sleep anyways?!?!
This girl does…. just doesn’t happen all the time. On the days where I’m running on empty, I remind myself of all I’ve accomplished just under the wire.
Everything will get finished ; I will have time to just chill out & “veg” one day.
Even if it’s not until the cows come home or when pigs fly, someday I’ll get there!
Until then I’ll just keep going & going until the battery wears out…
I just wish that I looked as cool & chill as the ever going, somewhat annoying Energizer Bunny… cool shades & all.
