Give It A Rest

Posted: February 7, 2011 in Uncategorized

You’ve been running at full speed since 5 AM and haven’t had a chance to breathe, let alone take a shit, without someone wanting SOMETHING.  You’re about to snap and snap someone’s neck.  Put the keys down, drop the detergent, and step away from the computer.  Put a video on for the kids, tell hubby to get lost.  You. NEED. to. RELAX!  You can’t bark at yourself to relax and expect it to work.  That’s not the way the body works.  You gotta take YOU time.  Even if it’s only a little bit here and there, it still counts.  A pedicure, a bath, a chair with a bit of the sauce and good reading material… whatever works.  You can’t destress by stressing out over destressing.  I tried that one.  It don’t work.  Even if it’s 5 minutes meditating in your cubicle so you don’t strangle your boss, it’s something.  How’s this a Tough Bitch Meditation?  Because it take a Tough Bitch to see to things before relaxing.  Because it takes a Tough Bitch to tell the world “Slow the fuck down.  Your crisis du jour can wait 20 minutes so I don’t break your fucking arm.”  So tell the world to shove it for however long it takes you to relax.  Not forever, because that qualifies under running away (and Tough Bitches don’t do that shit,) but long enough that you can come back, put your Tough Bitch bra back on, and go take on whatever the crisis du jour is without freaking out.
