I took this picture Sunday night, because I knew I would want to remember this exact moment. However, I was not emotionally stable enough to post it.
.
I take a little pride in how much I can accomplish day in and day out. At this moment though, I was more overwhelmed than I ever have been in my life, and I just about mentally shut down.
.
January took a lot of effort on everyone’s part to make it though, but we were finally about to get on top of things with a new permanent schedule that was more manageable for everyone.
.
I even had a much needed upcoming Saturday and Sunday off, to first take a mental break, and then catch up on the humongous to-do list that had piled up.
.
It was a little rough when @stepbackzach got sick, and I was in charge of covering his Saturday shift.
.
The thing that really pushed me over the top though was on Sunday after not even an hour and a half of working in solitude at a coffee shop, @alfonso_lopez texted me while on shift to tell me he had the flu.
.
This effected me so much that my roommates could instantly tell that I was not well the second I walked in the door when I got home. It wasn’t anyone’s fault, but that didn’t make it any easier.
.
This next moment I am not very proud of.
.
I went to lay in bed and just stare at the ceiling. There was so much for me to do, and so much of it needed to be done before I even went to sleep. However, I was partially laying there because I just felt sorry for myself.
.
After about 30 minutes I sat on the floor with my laptop and slowly started to work.
.
It really helped when @marconia93sat next to me to take as much off my plate as she could. Having her there, several hours past her bed time really motivated me to get to work as well.
.
We went to bed at about 2am with a huge feeling of accomplishment, and a lot more manageable to-do list.
.
We then hit the ground running Monday morning, and I am now more caught up on everything than I have been in over a month.
.
I think some people would try and forget this moment, but here’s why I won’t. If I can make it through a moment like this, and come out better on the other side, I can make it though anything.
