I remember when I use to never sleep. Those were the days. I would spend hours trying to sleep but never be able to. I'd have all the energy in the world and be up all night doing stuff and wake up bright and early to start it all over. Now all I do is sleep. I really miss the old days. I know a great deal of the reason is stress and I'm trying to not stress out as much but it is hard. There is so much to stress out about everywhere you look.
I'm starting to think the key is to just let go. Take control of the things you can control and let go of everything else. Trying to control everything is just going to send you to an early grave and that doesn't help anyone. Let go of trying to make everyone do everything perfect and just focus on yourself and your projects. If other people are bringing your project down, you don't have to ride their ass about it, just remove them from the project and take over. Don't be rude about it but don't baby them either because truth be told holding other people's hands while they mess up is a big part of my stress.
I don't know why I thought I'd share this with you guys today, but stress has been eating away at my life for a while now and I can't imagine I'm the only one. We can all get through this together, we just have to be strong and keep moving forward. We can do it!
