Overcoming a Midweek Crisis

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!

    Thanks Amy! Great thoughts! You are going to think that I am so weird, but I realized really late last night that when I said Happy Birthday to Rollin yesterday, through your post, I didn’t finish my sentence. It should have read “You are a perfect fit for your family!” Craig and I are so thrilled with both of you and your children. You have been so blessed to have found one another. Rollin has just filled in all the gaps. You guys are great! Love ya!

    I admire you so much. You invest so much in what you do and therefore everyone who knows you benefits a little bit from your hard work. I wonder if you are ever tempted to skip a blog post. You never do. That makes you truly amazing.
