I was so tired that I felt like my life force was being sucked right out of me. I felt mentally cloudy. I didn't feel as focused as I usually do, so it took a lot more effort and time to get tasks done. I didn't feel like my 100% self. I was becoming a mindless "walker."
Luckily right now I feel wonderfully human again. Last night I let myself sleep early to rejuvenate myself. Right before that I allowed myself to feel whatever range of emotions I was feeling. I was tired, frustrated, and maybe a little irritated. Recognizing that instead of bottling it in grounded the human side of me. This morning I made a little time for myself and reflected. Doing that helped my schedule feel not so overwhelming. Also, I treated myself just because I felt like I deserved it. I made myself a cup of freshly French pressed coffee. It was delicious and it made the my morning just a little better.
I know that in each and every one of us, especially myself, contain the potential of an angry soul-sucking zombie coming out. Hopefully I'll always be able to keep it from eating my brains out.
