You know what I sucks sometimes? Ever get a new bottle of coke or Pepsi and then promptly drop it? And you are soooo thirsty but you have to wait or begin the process of slowly “unfizzing” the bottle. Most people use the slowly undo the cap, letting the pressure out, then the fizz comes boiling up and you quickly seal the lid. You repeat the process over and over until finally you can drink! Sometimes, it has happened to me, where you aren’t paying attention or just a little too slow sealing the lid and you favorite carbonated beverage spills over the top and onto your hands and the floor.
Lately, I’ve been feeling like a shaken up pop bottle. The pressure inside of me has just simply been building up. What’s crazy to me is that I didn’t even notice it. It seemed like a slow process. It wasn’t that I didn’t know that pressure, stress, anxiety, and frustration were building up. It was that I didn’t realize how much of it was building up. It seemed like a slow process but it really wasn’t. It happened quickly.
I was at a conference this week. For some of you, I say conference and you already begin to fall asleep. Trust me, there were times when I about to myself. But getting aways, spending time with other people, focusing on something other than my crazy life, I mean crazy cuz most of you don’t know a lot of what’s going on, it helped to ease the fizz that was building up. It’s a lesson for myself and others, be aware of the fizz in your life and find ways to lesson the pressure. You don’t want to end up with a mess on the floor and all over your hands.
