Lately I have been REALLY struggling with the “daily grind”. Feel like I am in a never ending loop. I think that is part of why I get very grumpy and antsy in the fall. It seems that the closer it gets to my birthday (end of December) that the passing of time is reminding me that I have not accomplished much this year (or last year, etc.).
I have noticed too that the older I get, the harder on myself I can be. I am trying to work on that, and the negative mental commentary that I have for myself, and sometimes it helps to hear positive things from someone else. (See below)
