endure it

coping skills. that is the name of the game. you know im looking for full-time employment and the only positions giving me the time of day are those i dont believe i'd be successful at and i will extremely stress trying to do. mix that in with my living situation and you have the perfect recipe for mental/emotional breakdown. say i get offered a position at one of these places. i am really going to have to figure out how to survive it.

that's where coping skills come into play. i need things i can do to de-stress: exciting activities to look forward to. vacation days. made up/federal holidays. WEEKENDS will mean everything to me. what are some things you do when day-to-day life feels unbearable?

- I take a day off work (or a week)
- I travel
- I buy something small for myself like a cupcake or starbucks coffee
- I call friends who I haven't talked to in a long time
- This is crazy, but I take care of personal business. Knocking stuff off my list makes me feel better
- This is a tough one to actually implement, but sometimes I just let myself be, no to-do lists, no thinking about the day's, month's or year's goals, just pure chillin, in bed, on the couch, wherever. Just chillin'
