When I have something big hanging over my head I have a bad habit of withdrawing and feeling like I can't do anything until the big thing passes. I've been like this forever and have only realized in the last few years that I do this. For example UIL is next week. It is hanging over my head big time and I feel like I can't do anything until it passes. But I can. Because it is next week. And there is no reason why I can't come home at a decent time this week, or enjoy my evenings, ride my bike or even see a musical. It is so hard and I am fighting myself every step of the way, but it is a battle worth fighting. Something next week shouldn't disrupt this week.
