Thank you to everyone who has been checking up on me. I’m touched! And, yes, I am finally feeling better. It had been a while since I’d gotten sick and I was a bit surprised at how long it took for me to get back on track.
Of course now my To-Do list has grown exponentially. I am feeling badly about that. Is that crazy? I mean, I know that I could not function properly with a monster cold that included a hacking cough and laryngitis. Yet I’m mad at myself for letting so much stuff pile up. So I feel both better…and worse. Ugh. Didn’t I resolve to be kinder to myself this year?
The thing is, with March right around the corner, I’m feeling a bit apprehensive. Any teacher will concur: March is a terrible month. I think of it as “Marathon Month” because it just goes on forever, especially in the years when Easter is in April. This March, my husband is shifting into pre-deployment mode which means an (even more) erratic schedule for him while I have assignments due every single week for my classes.
I don’t want to be in survival mode for the next month but I don’t really have a plan so I’d love to get some insight from you.
What do you do to feel better about a daunting task? How do you pace yourself when faced with a full calendar? And what keeps you motivated?
