Right In The Thick Of It

It appears that I'm right in the thick of it.  I had visions of writing a happy post for National Cocoa Day today, or doing a DIY project for Christmas.  But it's been a day...

Actually... it's been a week... longer than that really.  But I'm still hanging on by a thread.  I won't lie, earlier today, I felt like I was on the verge of collapse.  Weirdly, it was not because of orders, because we're in good shape with those, but because of everything else.  Life sometimes has a way of making everything happen at the same time.  (When it rains it pours...)  And this just seems to be one of those weeks.

I've reached out to a few people for a shoulder to lean on, but I haven't really felt the support I guess I was hoping to find.  So instead, I've turned inward.  After spending most of the afternoon busting my heinie on desk accessory orders (while doing a lot of thinking), I watched two episodes of Mighty Ducks on Disney+ while I ate my lunch (at dinnertime) and I feel like I'm in less of a funk this evening.

In fact, I decided to spend a few minutes working on my 2023 goal list.  That usually puts me in a good mood since I like to envision the possibilities of the future.  And while I was working on it, I suddenly knew what my word of the year for 2023 was going to be.  I think it's been sitting there for a while, but I'd been struggling to come up with it when I was pressing myself to think of one.  Today, right in the middle of a near breakdown, it came to me like a shining beacon.

So, I'm in the thick of it right now.  It's Hell Week; Eliot and I have a ton of orders to finish before the USPS holiday shipping deadline this upcoming Saturday.  Things could be going better in other aspects of my life, but I'm hanging on.  And we'll get to the other side.  And everything will be ok, even if it doesn't feel like it right now... °o°
