See Things For What They Can Be

Football and No Work

OK…it’s Thursday night. First game of the 2010 Football season. The Saints lead the Vikings 7 – 3. No, I’m not going to give a play by play or keep you updated on the score. Anyway, by the time most of you read this, you will already know the outcome of the game.

My thing is this. Why am I feeling guilty? When I got home from work yesterday, I didn’t do anything. Today, the same. Deep down I feel I should be doing something. At the same time I feel as if I deserve a rest….everyone does right?

I have deadlines to meet and I know if I keep this up, I will fall further behind. I do realize the stress is building and I must stay focused. I also realize that I am human and if I push too hard, that could make things worse. Is there a happy medium? 

Of course there is. One thing I need to do is to step back and look at the big picture, and in this picture I see a lot of red because the red is in my eyes. I did work late today and was really tired when I got home. What do I do? Stay the course. Tonight, I rest again and remove the guilt. I know I will get back to where I need to be and to focus on what is at hand. If I had sat myself down to work on my designs, I wouldn’t have accomplished much because my mind is tired….I know this. 

I almost sound as if I’m having a self pity party. Not so. I have a job that is stressful, demanding, and tiring (is that a word?). It really does take a lot out of me at times….it’s real…I can’t get away from it…not yet.

Pity?…no. Whine?…maybe. Whatever it is, there ya have it. 

Tomorrow, it’s back to business. Right now?…Saints lead the Vikings, 14 – 9. The Vikings missed the extra point.
