Yes, we are back in it, those dreadful first days of incorporating ourselves back into the office, or making those trips to the school gates with lots of tears, which over they are both stressful and where us down, whether it is emotional or physical we feel it.
We think that after our break, we are invincible, that is not quite the case, most of us have an internal battle with how we feel,first we start with denial, thinking we can take on the world, we set ourselves up for the first fall, all by ourselves,with the help of no one, trying to convince that all is well and that the effort is not as great as it is, we internally talk ourselves into anything. Getting back into the groove as they say, needs to be one step at a time, and not pretending we can do everything the first day. Then we will deal with anger, we start to feel discontent with where we are in life and what we are doing, we find fault with everything we can regarding our job or situation, we even start to bargain with ourselves, this is the wrong road.
Once you work through the depression and start to accept the situation, you can truly start to get down to serious business, when we accept our situation, we make our everyday routine happier for us, as we start and go through the day and of course end the day. accepting does not mean we intend to stay in that situation for life, we are not renouncing our dreams or goals, while you still plan your future and work with your ambition and passion, is it not more pleasurable to be happy each day as you make your way to what you want, than being miserable each day, you see, this is your choice, and many people believe that if you do not have what you want you cannot be happy, it is your attitude and emotions to life that create your feelings, not earning sufficient money or holding the position you wish or working without your full passion, does not mean you can’t be happy on the way, don’t waste your days feeling and being miserable and unhappy, make each day count.
If you are passing though the first days of your child’s school, hang on in there, some times it can be more stressful for the parent than the child, most children who shed a tear when leaving Mummy or Daddy at the gate or classroom, recover very quickly and soon start to join the other children and laugh and play, you on the other hand maybe all day thinking of that little face with tears rolling down their face, it’s difficult but try to lift yourself out of that mood, most of them are fine and really happy within a very short period of time !
And finally, if you really are unhappy with no way of shaking it off, move, make that change, let go of fear and make your change . Don’t let anything hold you back, find your passion, know what you want and where you want to be and go for it !
