I have been feeling very jumpy lately. I am talking about that nervous feeling, the kind that makes me on edge periodically during the day. There is nothing going on to cause this feeling. I am manufacturing it. I have been doing it my whole life.
There have been long stretches when this doesn’t happen. It usually occurs when there are fewer demands in my life. I know you may be questioning my last statement because my work is constantly filled with daily demands. Those demands are not as intense as caring for an ailing parent, dealing with troubled children, having health issues, or financial challenges. When those situations occur, I find my inner strength and focus on my responsibilities.
