Head Above Water

I'm 28, and it finally occurred to me that keeping my head above water isn't necessarily a euphemism for being completely stressed, it's a coping method. I can either wear myself out trying to accomplish everything, or I can, quite honestly, tread water until the tide passes.

Head above water.

I like it.

It means that the laundry gets done, but the in-depth house cleaning can wait.

It means that the check and contract get sent to the photographer, but the dedicated hours updating the wedding binder will wait.

This is also known as prioritizing...and you are doing it well. Plus, you have a very sweet head.

You can totally get through this and get overly stressed. Go Sarah!
