I hope that everyone had a great weekend this past weekend! I spent most of my time working on this huge presentation project that is due Thursday. I can’t wait until this semester begins to come to a close, because I am honestly becoming fatigued and worn out. So many projects being due, group presentations, individual projects, work, making time for friends and family. It becomes really exhausting, but that’s what college life is all about, making time for everything and the funny part is that I haven’t fallen behind in my classes, which is great!
I love all of my family and friends, but sometimes I feel as though I am being pulled in every direction, without any time for myself to just collect my thoughts. This is probably my fault, because I can easily say no, but it’s harder than what it seems. Telling people no, who wants to hangout with you and who’s had your back through everything that you’ve been through is pretty tough. I’m working on it more and more and I rarely complain, it’s sometimes very tough and I am completely drained. With school, work, dealing with different personalities and helping my mom move, people just don’t know how demanding that is, if you’ve never been through it before. I am a very nice person, which makes it hard for me to say no and I don’t want to come off as being mean, but sometimes I just need a break to figure things out for me.
Sometimes one simple word is what is needed to but things in its proper perspective. This is all I need sometimes, just to breathe! It helps a lot, trust me. This is what I have to remember when I get too stressed out, breathe. It gives you time to collect your thoughts somewhat and gives you some time to yourself.
Something that really helps me out is meditation. It’s one of the best things in the world, in my opinion! Just sitting back and zoning everything out, the world, class, etc. To me, meditation can be a lot of things. People driving around in their car to think, listening to their music zoning everything out, or just sitting in a quiet, peaceful area. Whatever the case may be, it’s a great way to clear your head from any distractions, negativity, etc. I love meditating and it helps me tremendously, because now it’s a little over a month left for the semester, so now it’s time to grind this on out!
Ultimately, I feel as though everyone needs a vacation at this point! Hopefully this is where I will be in the future, just to get away from it all for a little bit. I hope that everyone has a great week and weekend as well!
