I'm feeling cranky. Have been for several days. It's the feeling you get when you feel like you have too much to do, and not much breathing space left over.
I could tell you I'm cranky because I've been slammed lately with a lot of leads for my real estate investment business, or because I spent time on the road late last week helping my daughter move into her apartment. Those are actually good things.
Or I could attribute it to a serious of unusual technical issues I'm experiencing with my email and other computer areas. These are irritating and often maddening, but not the real source of my crankiness.
It's just simply this. I'm cranky because I'm not doing what I love doing - writing posts in my blog, and catching up on the posts of my blog buddies.
I feel pent up inside - "backed up." Writing in my blog provides an opening for my heart and soul to speak to me and through me. It's an essential way I can check in with myself.
I'm still finding my way (and my rhythm) in my new business, and a big part of that is learning how to create a manageable schedule. A schedule that allows me time to do the other things in my life that matter. Like blogging!
Cranky times require drastic measures. This morning I decided to steal some time from analyzing real estate deals and blog. It's never too late to cure my crankiness! Why did I ever put it off?
How about you? How do you cure (or prevent!) crankiness in your life?
