Sometimes you just need a moment...
It’s no secret that the past week of my life
has been full of frustrating moments,
major melt-downs, and moments of complete insanity.
Moving to a new country
is not the easiest thing in
this world to do.
At least it hasn't been for me...
In the midst of being a
wife, mom, sister, daughter, friend;
Do you find that you sometimes go AWOL?
That has happened several times
to me this past week
Well, a few times before…
I can attest to putting other things ahead of me so much that sometimes
I have to take a cool-it moment.
These “Time-Outs” don’t have to last long.
They range from 5 minutes alone in total quietness
full on day at the spa
getting pampered and recharged.
In the past week none of those moments have been available to me…
So what does a good MilSpouse do?
I have learned to improvise and adapt.
I have begun to use the 30-second rule.
If I feel myself losing my self-control
And/or sanity in any given moment
I remove myself from the situation
I count backwards from 30.
Most of the time
I’m able to get back to me
get on track again.
There are times that I still lose my cool,
I’m not perfect and neither is that method.
But it’s what I got so far…
I’m learning as I go.
I think the progress is in realizing
that you aren’t
That everyone deserves
What are some of the ways you take
time out for you?
I need some new ideas ;-)
