One of my co-workers is currently reading a book to help with her sales and marketing strategy: The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell.
I haven't read the book but, from my understanding, it explains how little things make a big difference in the success of a concept, product, service, person, etc. He illustrates how things become viral by word of mouth and how a concept will begin and then spread suddenly reaching a 'tipping point' where there is no stopping it.
I understand the concept all too well these past few weeks. I too have reached a tipping point where I feel completely buried under obligation. I don't like when I reach this point because I begin to feel resentful for everything that is asked of me. I even feel that I'm begrudgingly writing this blog post...
I understand that it is because I haven't had much "me" time.
Gentleman Jack was in town last weekend and I drove in to see him this past weekend. As much as I adore being with my man, I tend to ignore responsibilities and things begin to build up.
I also recognize that I've been very tired lately.
I've been unable to get to the store to stock up on my supply of vitamins and supplements that keep my energy levels strong. I feel very depleted of energy. Therefore...
I haven't been consistent in my workouts.
That, too, will affect my energy levels. Honestly, I can't figure out how I ever trained for a triathlon before. I'm too tired and busy in the evenings to get on my bike. This weekend and so far this week, I did pick up a yoga class, a few runs outside, some bike training and a swim today. Once I get back to my routine, I should feel better.
I'm also so ready for Spring.
I look forward to more sunshine and a lot less shivering. And yes, in August or September, you will hear me complain about the heat. I can tolerate the heat and cold but I am ready for the change in seasons when they occur. Give me Spring and Fall any day!!
So, I apologize that I've been unable to get to your blogs to read and/or comment. I've actually read some but have been unable to put thoughts together coherently or had another issue come up and not had the time to leave a comment. Ugh. I promise I'll get better.
I'm feeling overwhelmed and worn out. I'm ready to tip this point back in the other direction, you know? Momma needs some BALANCE.
Thank you for all the love and patience.
You guys rock my socks.
