It has been such a long week already, so when I realized it was only Wednesday I wanted to curl up into the fetal position and cry a little….of course I say that at the end of being awake for 20 hours already today and I am not quite finished with my day yet until I finish writing this blog post, so yeah, that may be contributing a tiny little bit to my midweek crisis…well that and the fifty million things I need to get done but still haven’t yet (thus a 20 hour day today…) …yikes!
The funny thing about a midweek crisis is that it hits you both ways – you are bummed out that it’s only halfway through to the weekend and you also start to have a panic attack when you realize you are already halfway through the week and have only accomplished ten percent of everything you need to get done still….of course it feels like a crisis!
The only way I know to overcome a midweek crisis is to simply PRESS ON…
“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” – Calvin Coolidge
And so to get through this ridiculously crazy week I am having I will keep pressing on and just pray it will all somehow turn out okay in the end…and I’ll keep reminding myself that as long as I am still breathing it’s not the end!
