What do you do when you wanna give up?
I’ve come to the realization that…..I’m crazy!
What do I mean?
Well yeah my girls can drive me crazy sometimes to the point where I just wanna curse! Not really lady like or christian like…but I’m being honest here.
You know what people say about the meaning of crazy “Doing the same thing over and over again….that’s called crazy”
That’s the crazy I’m talking about.
I thought changing one thing or wanting to change was easy…..
Its not as simple as I thought.
I’m going crazy inside this noggin. I have to much on my plate and for some reason I want to add to it.
Not to long ago I went to a women’s retreat and it was just what I needed. Away from my girls and husband and just me and the Lord…oh and a bunch other women too :).
But the main thing that I came home with was “rest” we women do so much and I don’t know about you but sometimes I’m hard on myself, and it can be exhausting.
Don’t get me wrong I think sometimes we gotta be tough but I take it over board to much. And I put myself down…a lot.
The point I’m trying to make is that sometimes we gotta say no when our plate is full. When I am overwhelm and I have to much on my plate or in my head, I just wanna quit at it all. And then I feel like a failure because I want to quit. And then comes the watermarks. Yeah I’m a crier….thats how I release tension and stress sometimes.
At times I just need a good cry! Oh come on I know I’m not the only one….right!?
So what is it in your life that makes you wanna quit and what is it that keeps you going?
Here are some ways I get relieve from my crazy overthinking exhausting mind of mine.
- Pray! Yup good ol prayer. I’ve learn that going to God first makes things better. Ask God to refresh your mind and spirit.
- Then I talk to someone, like my husband or my sister or a close friend that I confide in.
- And sometimes I write down my prayers, kinda like a mind dump! I let it all out but at the same time I’m talking to God. A double whammy! :)
- Drink a glass of wine or some coffee, whatever floats your boat! And relax a bit. Going back to your problem refreshed and renewed!
So back to my first question. What do you do when you want to give up? I would love your thoughts on this!
With my head up high :)
