Reason to keep rescue remedy in your desk.

I am having a high anxiety day today, I was yesterday too, somedays I can just feel it in my whole body like I am hyped up on too many energy drinks, adrenalyn rushing through my body. Someday’s the anxiety seethes through my pores, other day’s I feel perfectly fine.

When I am already having an anxious day I get overwhelmed much easier, today was the bitch of all overwhelming days. I had so much paperwork that had to be done by day’s end so I booked the whole day to do it. Of course my many, many clients would not allow me one day of peace, I got 4 phone calls asking for status updates on applications I already told them would take 4-6 weeks for a decision…I sent them off a week ago. I had two clients walk in demanding on the spot appointment’s, some crises or other, when I had the whole day Thursday open for appointment, Tuesday and Wednesday is already booked, hence the need to get the paperwork done today, it’s already late. Grrrr. I just wished today I could be working from home like I used to in Toronto. On admin day’s I would work at home, uninterrupted and get sooo much done, 10 hours of work done in 5 due to no interruptions. No phone ringing off the hook, no clients walking in, no co-worker looking for updates on shared clients or with other question. Just peace and solitude to get things done. 

I did get the paperwork done that needed done, but just, I finished at 3:45 and called the courrier to come and get the three envelopes, they can’t get here til morning, so it looks like the paperwork will be another day late. Oh well, my hands are tied, things have been insane here for the past 2 weeks, I have gotten 10 new clients this month alone, the norm is 3-4. Everyone want’s me to fix their lives yesterday, I have to tell them I have 60 of you and 1 of me, I need time to work miracles. Sigh! 

So glad to be going home, I feel like crap on top of it all. Oh Murphey’s Law, how I despise thee.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. I have often wished more companies valued employees working from home. You really do get soooo much more done without constant interruptions (office silliness).
