Taking My Life Back, Part 1
When I was young, I planned everything. It made me quite productive, and I still had time for fun and proper rest. In high school, I was able to do extracurricular activities and keep my grades up. In college, it allowed me to work two jobs and keep up with my classes. Even as a college graduate working my first full-time job, I managed to get my work done and relax. As a married woman and new mom, I was on it. Then, things changed.
At first, I figured I just became lazy, but as it turned out, much more was happening. As years passed and the underlying problems grew, I completely stopped planning and organizing my life. This lasted nearly twenty years. However, things have changed once again.
This shift has been long awaited. I have overcome what I believe was depression. I feel like myself again. I have the energy to do things I haven’t done in years. I feel happy. I am grateful.
Finally, I am getting my groove back. So, if you don’t seem like yourself, get professional help (unlike me). Try to reflect to find the issues and fix them. What have you done to help yourself through depression or some other rough spot in life? What do you do to keep yourself organized? Please share so that we can help others.
