I’m Exhausted

Hello wonderful you,

I haven’t been publishing my blog regularly because I haven’t been able to focus on thinking and writing what I want to share. For the last few weeks the IC condition I have has been acting up, I can’t sleep, I feel exhausted all the time, stressed and overwhelmed and upset.

The thing is, to write I need to have the right mindset, I need to be able to focus, I can’t just sit down and say OK now I’m writing and write something that will be inspiring and a benefit to the reader and so what’s happening is that, not being able to write is making me feel like I’m letting myself down. At the beginning of the year I set the intention to publish my blog every other week. Keeping my word to myself is very important to me and so not being able to, is really stressing me out.

About three years ago I was diagnosed with IC (interstitial cystitis) and let me tell you this condition is no joke. Anyone living with a chronic condition knows how it can take over your life and when that happens, I find that for me, the best thing I can do is to let go of everything, not put all that pressure on me and just go with the flow of things. Getting upset and stressed out only makes things worse, it’s not healthy for me, nor is it helping anything. My philosophy on this subject however, is not always as easy and simple as all that, sometimes I fall back into an old habit that doesn’t serve me, without even realizing it.

It’s funny how you may think that you did all that inner work and you conquered a certain habit but, the thing is that, old habits die hard, they return at any moment like out of nowhere, and they take a hold of you and you don’t even realize that you’re back in it, doing/feeling/allowing an old habit to take control over you again and you’re back in a whirlwind of emotions, stressing and all.

When I was telling my son how I feel so stressed and overwhelmed and so exhausted from not sleeping well and my body not feeling well, and I can’t think straight and write anything, it’s like my mind is blank and this really upsets me, he said, why don’t you write about this? you can title it, exhausted LOL and just like that I realized that I’m holding on to wanting to honor an intention I set, which is a good thing, but, sometimes life happens and I just need to let go of putting all that pressure on me and give myself grace. The best I can do is pay attention to my body, rest and stay calm and just go with the flow. WOW!!!

Let go and go with the flow.

My invitation for you today – when you’re going through a difficult time, if you can, find someone you can trust and talk to them, they just may say something that will make a difference for you. And if you’re like me, remind yourself that stressing out won’t help anything, the best thing you can do is give yourself some grace, let go and go with the flow. Also, seek professional help if you need.

Well, that’s it for today. I hope this blog post serves you and inspires you. Leave a comment love to hear from you.

      1. Oh Masha! I had this happen to me during the holidays. I was overwhelmed and there was nothing in my head to say. I too am a woman of my word but I had no words! And I did talk at and to people to just get it out because that was all I could do to cope. I’m glad you were able to write this. I am beginning to find my voice again too. Relief.
        Also, check your links. 2 aren’t working.
        Much love,

      2. So glad you’re beginning to find your voice again Shalagh, and yes I find talking it out really helps me, and letting go of what I can’t change in the moment – and like you say when you get your voice back, Relief.
        Sorry about the links, they are working here on my end, but, I tried to post them here in the comment section but it doesn’t come out good, sorry about this.
        Thank you for your wonderful comment and letting me know about the links, have a wonderful day xo
