My New Look

I’ve developed a bit of an eye twitch lately. I’ve been trying to figure out why. Is it stress? Is it lack of sleep? Maybe it’s too much caffeine?

Stress. I don’t feel like I’m overly stressed. I mean it is a possibility, but honestly, I don’t feel too bad. I’m constantly being challenged with my comfort zone in my new role. In just a couple of weeks I’ll be at the helm of the ship as my boss and trainer is headed out for half a year. But I’m looking forward to it.

Sleep. Yeah, this one is a real possibility, too. I’ve been pushing it a bit. I want to be productive. I want to get things done. I want to be ready for my day. I want to do devotions. One of my goals in coming here was that I would create a good wake up routine. So far I’ve been able to keep up with it, but now I’m afraid I might have gone too far.

Caffeine. This one is kind of sore-spot for me. I drink about 3 cups of coffee a day. I know people who drink more than that, but still, it’s quite a bit. I definitely have an addiction to the stuff. When I looked up online what might be the cause of eye-twitching, caffeine was one of the first culprits. I quickly navigated to another website because, you know, you can’t believe everything you read on the internet (unless it conveniently agrees with your lifestyle…) But, every webpage I turned to listed caffeine high up on the list. So, much to my unhappiness, I started to drink less coffee. I’m down to 1 cup now. My eye is still twitching.
