Do you ever have those times when you just can’t focus? I’ve been there the past couple of weeks. It’s aweful and I can’t stand it. But I just can’t seem to come out of the fog completely. I need to focus on getting ready for school. I need to focus on some projects around my house. But I can’t seem to wrap my head around much.
Part of it is that I’ve been sick for a few weeks with the never ending summer cold. My girls and I keep passing it back and forth, but it seems like it’s at the end now. Achoo! Maybe not. I’ve also been stressed to the max over some things that I really don’t want to stress about, but it seemed I had no other choice. I’m a mother first, and if it affects my child, I stress.
Then there are some things that I can’t mention yet, that every time I think it’s over and I can’t possibly hear anything new about this certain situation, something new pops up. With it brings frustration, disappointment, and an uncertainty about what to do.
Most days I feel like Dory from Finding Nemo, “Just keep praying, just keep praying.” Some things are starting to fall back into place. Slowly. I’m not in a huge hurry, which is really big for me because I’m known to be a little impatient. I just want the rest of it to fall into place. I need to be able to focus again.
So what do you do when you can’t focus?
