Reigning in the Chaos

 I succumbed to a little nap late this afternoon. Those who know me, know that I just don't nap.  I have a lot of reasons for not taking naps, mostly because it's hard for me to have down time.  Once I get into bed, I'm afraid I would never get out and that could potentially create more problems for me that I just don't need, plus I tend to thrive as a manic.
       With that said, it was good for me to have that hour or so to just rest my brain and my body.  I woke up with a lot more clarity than I've had all week.  I do need to get my head back in the game.  I need to do those things that will keep me energized and strengthened.  In a lot of ways, managing my kids health is like a full time job.  They are my employer and I have been slacking.  I don't want to use the words 'giving up' but I have certainly been not just physically fatigued but emotionally too.  I haven't been too patient this week, too attentive or too productive. 
       My hope for this week is that I will be able to face whatever comes with a positive attitude, an accepting attitude and just deal with it head on instead of using all my favorite tactics of avoidance.  A long time ago, I read a book entitled, Feel the Fear and Face it Anyways.  That's what I'm going to do this week.  I feel like I am ready to re-engage in the process.
