Can I make a confession? Right now I feel like I’m on the brink of nervous exhaustion.
My work life is out of control at the moment. Every day brings new, complex problems and massive juggling of resources and politics, plus having to put up with a lot of often rude behaviour while trying to shield my team from that to the degree possible.
Meanwhile I top and tail my day with blogging, which I love, but which is hard to keep up with – you are all so fabulous and prolific I worry a lot I will get behind because… because…
Because Dr Who hasn’t co-operated and turned up with the tardis to give me more hours in the day…damn him…mind you, I did specify I wanted the 10th Dr (the divine David Tennant) so perhaps my pickiness is why he won’t turn up…having re-generated and all…though I don’t see what’s wrong with having taste and standards…but….but I digress….
So can I ask a targeted question to my fellow RCCers, and anyone else kind enough to be reading this and able to offer some good advice??
For those of you who are juggling blogging, your creative and other dreams with a full time job or other major responsibilities – how do you do it for a sustained period? Are there any good tricks to help get the balance right?
I know I will have 10+ hour days at work Monday to Friday and often weekend work and that won’t let up. I also know I want to get my first book published online by July and am falling a bit behind in making the arrangements for that. I also know I want to keep in regular, daily contact with as many of you as possible as that deeply enriches my life.
But I’m so tired..more tired than I can remember being…and this week at work has been a litany of disasters, bad news and assorted bad behaviour so my resilience levels are down.
For those of you in similar situations, what do you do? How do you stop yourself from spiralling into depression?
I’m probably just at a particularly low ebb right now and will bounce back, but any advice would be most appreciated.
Or if anyone can find the 10th Dr and send him and the tardis my way I will be forever in your debt….. 🙂
