On Trust and Worry Part 2: Eating My Words by Carina Mead

Mere days after writing my last blog post, I was suddenly swept into the one thing I vowed not to get swept up in – stress!

All of the quiet alone time I had scheduled for myself the week before the wedding went out the window as family members strolled into town and projects piled up.

One day in particular, some of my dearest family members came over to help me pick flowers for the wedding. Once we got home with the intention of assembling the flower arrangements, I came home to find 5 family members who I hadn’t seen yet, my kitchen was filled with boxes upon boxes of champagne (we had won a giveaway and the mountains of boxes were delivered while I was out). I felt claustrophobic and my blood sugar was crashing. On top of having a million things to do and being beckoned to answer a thousand questions from not-very-helpful people wanting to “help” and my brain going in a thousand directions from attempting to delegate tasks without giving the wrong task to the wrong person, I was reaching my breaking point.

I made an announcement to everyone in my house, who were happy eating, socializing and catching up, “Everyone: I am going into my bedroom with my yoga mat and I will be in there for 10 minutes. Do not bother me, do not ask me questions, do not, unless there is a fire, bother me for the next 10 minutes. Please.” It was the best thing I did for myself all week and it was HEAVEN. I turned up some music and grooved and stretched for awhile. I had created a moment for myself to breathe which I desperately needed.
