Mental health can be a tricky thing. You can wake up and feel energized and up beat and ready to take on the day. And then one little thing happens and you fall pretty low again. .
This morning I woke up, ready to take on my busy day. I got out of bed, washed my face, did the dishes that were forgotten from the night before. I started the coffee, I woke the kids, I put on music and I sang my heart out while acting like a total goof. My spirits were high, I was excited to take my son to his school performance at the radio station. I was ready to super clean the house for the BBQ this weekend.
And then plans changed, the car couldn’t be driven, there was a flat tire and the donut wasn’t safe to drive on. Can’t be fixed till tomorrow. Immediately all the positivity left my body and I became upset. Not at anyone, but at myself, at the world. My son worked hard all year to be able to get to this Radio performance with his ensemble. And now he can’t go, because I can’t take him. My older son can’t get to school and get his Rewards from last nights Ceremony that we had to miss. He can’t go buy his 8th grade yearbook. My daughters can’t get to school and turn in their papers for their end of the year parties. I feel defeated, I feel at fault, I hate that I can’t do this for them. All the negative emotions have taken hold of me. It doesn’t matter that it actually isn’t my fault, and that the kids will be just fine. I feel guilty. But as I sat here going through quotes online, I was reminded that I’m in control. I’ve sat here in my sadness and now it’s time to get up and push forward. If I allow myself to wallow, it will only worsen. So instead, today will be productive. We will clean house and prepare for a weekend filled with friends and family and food and water games. It’s ok that today didn’t go as planned, we are alive and we have many other things to look forward to. Depression can kiss my ass, I don’t have time for it. .
