This weekend we had a few social engagements, including a party late on Saturday and a birthday party in the evening Sunday. I tend to love coffees and smaller/shorter engagements, but larger gatherings where there is a lot of small talk with people I’ve never met before or haven’t seen in awhile, it is draining, especiallly two nights in a row. If I am honest with myself, these engagements are work and not highly enjoyable for me. Honestly, because work pays the bills, I’d probably rather be at work. But the thing is, having friends and having a social wife means having to put a smile on my face and fighting through these things the best I can. All part of the trade-off of live. But I am paying the price for it today (Monday), though. 🙂
I am worn out from a very busy few weeks (on top of my chronic fatigue 🙂 ). I have a busy morning of prep, then several important client meetings and prep for a Monday morning presentation. Then, starting at 7 pM tonight, we have a major birthday gala to go to that will surely go hours considering dinner is not served until 2 hours after the cocktail hour starts. How am I going to make it considering I can barely move? Not sure. It starts with an extra cup of coffee, putting a smile on my face, then one step at a time, pushing the overall day out of my head. On to the next step 🙂
Update: One step at a time worked. I am nearing the end of a successful work day.
