It has been awhile since I did a One Moment, and that is something I am not proud of. I feel like my job has taken a hold of my life and not in a good way. I am extremely overwhelmed and stressed on a daily basis and while I am thankful to have employment, I have to wonder what is it costing me. I constantly think about blogging, from building my readership to continually trying to come up with crafty and fashion worthy content but as of late, I have been lacking the motivation due to my job.
Anyway, as you can imagine, with so much work, I bring my laptop home so that I can continue to work, even on my “off” time. My One Moment this week happened on Friday night. While I was working on my laptop, I got the blue screen of death. You know what I am talking about. You computer gets a blue screen, then shuts down and then doesn’t come back on. As you can imagine, my immediate reaction was to FREAK OUT. I am ashamed to say I cried. The man told me to calm down and look at it this way, “You don’t need to work this weekend. You can craft”. After I spouted something incoherent at him, I slowly began to see his point. Yes, I do have a lot of work and yes, it is going to be such a PAIN to get a new computer and hopefully save some of my work but at the same time, I need to use my time off for the things I love to do. If need be, I can freak out again on Monday.
OM is a weekly meet up that promotes living in the moment. Whether funny, sad, ridiculous, or banal, actively looking for and sharing these moments will promote balance in our lives.
