Uhm, hello, August. I swear yesterday was January.
I’ve been struggling with what to post recently, and I have started writing and erased things 10 times over. I finally decided what to write this morning, and figured at least one person might find it helpful, or relatable.
The last few weeks/months in this house have been crazy. So many changes, like SO many. And as the planner/glue/do-er of the family, it gets exhausting. I always feel like there is so much to do, so much to pay for, and so much to make perfect really. (All this on top of working full time, no thank you). I’ve found myself doing a whole bunch of pretending by day, and breaking down by night, because that’s what we’re supposed to do, right? Pretend like we have everything together when we don’t? Now, don’t get me wrong, I have the BEST support group anyone could ask for, and I absolutely could not ask for more, but sometimes life is downright exhausting (and expensive)!
I’ve been really struggling with my feelings, thinking how can someone who has pretty much everything they want still be struggling? Well, it’s a thing. AND it’s okay. Transition and change aren’t easy, trying to be perfect isn’t easy (or possible), and it is really important to not lose sight of what you have in front of you.
This morning while scrolling through instagram, and ignoring my responsibilities, I came across an affirmation a girlfriend of mine post (thanks, liz!), and it reminded me that everything is okay. What I do is enough, I am strong, I am healthy, and I am lucky.
So I’m posting an affirmation today (2 actually), for anyone who needs it, and even if you think you don’t. You’ve got it, friend, mama, sister. I feel you, I’m with you!
