“You’re not the same as you were before. You were much more . . . muchier. You’ve lost your muchness.”
That quote by the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland has been in my head lately. About 6 years ago, I left an agency where I’d worked for many years to go to another agency where I would be making more money. I stayed in that job for just over 3 years. But while I was there, I feel like I lost my muchness. It was a stressful environment. No. Let me take that back. The environment was not at all. I had really good supervisors and my unit was full of awesome people. But the job itself, what I was doing, was stressful and it started to take its toll. My stomach hurt a lot and my hair started falling out. I ended up leaving the position and within weeks, I started to feel better.
The Struggle is Real.
Even though it’s been almost 3 years since I left that job, sometimes I still struggle with some things. That job was soul crushing. I got to hear all about the horrific things people do to children and vulnerable adults. It wasn’t always easy for me to turn off my brain and leave work at work. I still remember some of the calls. It was around this time that I found direct sales and started dabbling. I was looking for more fun in my life and ways to take care of myself. I found some really great products and some really great people. I still feel some kind of way sometimes. I know I’m awesome, but there’s days that keeping that mindset is hard.
It can be easy to let stressful situations get the better of you. Take time for you, friend. And read on for more about positive mindsets.
