Sometimes I need to do a reset on my brain. I’m sure I’m not alone.

I need to stop and run a filter through my thoughts

Getting rid of the things that don’t benefit my life.

It is eight days into December and it has been a strange month.

Sick animals, deaths from cancer and deaths from covid.

So I take a day to really pull each thought out and examine it. Am I just feeling sorry for myself? Am I thinking about others or just thinking about how others effect me? There is a difference you know.

It’s bad for me to not be thinking big picture. Some people need to stay in the little moments, the big picture is overwhelming for them. I am not that person.

I need to be able to see where everything will be in a month not where everything is right now. Does that make sense? I don’t need to control it, rather I need to release and let go of the need to control it.

So today I need to spend some time finishing things. I have a dozen things around the house 1/2 done. Laundry in the dryer for days, empty boxes everywhere. I don’t need to finish everything, just a few things to feel that feeling.

Tomorrow I have a day of things. The dogs are going to daycare for a special day. I’ll tel you later about that. It will also be Dustys last one for a bit because she will have surgery next week and need lots of recovery time. Then I have to ship out a Christmas order. I am also having a fun dinner with my daughter and will be seeing a local comedy show! Maybe I’ll run into some comedy people I know?

Luckily Frank woke us all up very early today so the animals are already back to their morning naps. After I finish this I will do my morning exercises and then up and at it! Lots of music today I think.

    I do the thing where I remind myself that the problem that is overwhelming my life right NOW will be forgotten or at least just background memories in a year. That really helps!

    I have been feeling overwhelmed, too, which has caused me to be unfocused on the things I need to do to feel better! Funny, I had planned a similar catch-up day here today, although I don’t see a day of fun after that…yet.

    Still dealing with Covid deaths, and people want to pretend it’s all over and just do all the things…our local paper just ran a story on the front page that started out talking about how the pandemic is mostly behind us now, so we can all go back to normal. Yet the obituaries listed people that succumbed to Covid and Covid-related mortalities. We had a guy come to the house yesterday to check out some some plumbing but refused the mask we offered him because he doesn’t wear them “for personal reasons”. So he was sent on his way. Our local Walmart is closing completely for two days. This was explained that it was to give the associates a much-needed break, and for restocking, and oh yes, a third party company is coming in for deep cleaning and sanitizing. But – according to employees, it is because Covid has infected an alarming number of employees, maybe half(?), even though they were “forced” to get vaccinated.

    Sorry, so sorry for rambling on. So many people just don’t get it, still…

    But mostly what I wanted to say is – I am glad today is a better day for you! I am going to work to make it be a better day here, too!

    Wow, that is a lot of reminders just right in your face about Covid deaths and the lack of people with brains. That must be so frustrating for you.
    “ overwhelming my life right NOW will be forgotten or at least”. This is exactly what I do. I think how many people do I hear about that had my problem 10 years ago? NONE. Life just keeps going. 🙂

    I am a member of a couple of grief support groups. I can’t believe how many you g healthy people have died of covid. The news would have you think it’s always ppl with other health issues.
    But I am also amazed at how many ppl who are seriously grieving their loss, are still against getting vaccinated. It really makes one wonder about, well a lot of things.
    Good for you knowing what works for you when things get overwhelming. The way I dealnwithntjings seems to have changed a lot in the last few months. Live and learn.
