Nothing's wrong, neccessarily, but just a tiny nagging feeling that something isn't right.
I have a lingering problem with balance...I have a hard time saying no.
I have too many projects going on.
I've been obsessed with working and my emails and my stupid iphone.
I let the house get out of control and then I'm paralyzed and don't know where to start.
I won't go to the gym because I have too much work to do.
I catch myself saying no to the kids more often than I'm saying yes.
I haven't read a book in a long, long, time.
I fall asleep at 8:30 because I'm so exhausted, which leaves little time for my hubs.
I find myself ordering pizza, microwaving chicken nuggets, and throwing some apples or carrots on the plate so I don't feel like a bad mom.
Does any of this sound vaguely familiar?
Today I sloughed off work.
I cleaned all the kids rooms, went through their clothes and undies and pj's. Made a huge bag for Goodwill and a list of things to keep an eye out for to prepare for cooler weather.
I made some necessary flu shot appointments, washed bedding, did laundry, organized paper work, and I allowed myself to enjoy it all.
I spent a little time on the computer looking at possible Christmas presents for the kids, and that was really fun!
I'm hoping tomorrow after a dentist appointment I will feel up to get a much needed mani,pedi, and eyebrow wax.
I need to allow myself to take care of myself! That sounds so crazy to write, but I find myself lacking in that area!
Sometimes I forget that ultimately God is in control.
I find myself trying to take the drivers seat...ha! We all know that doesn't work.
I need surrender to Him.
I'm tired of trying so hard, when all He wants me to do is just BE.
Did you read all that?
I am so guilty of being the woman on the left.
I'm so grateful to have a fresh start again tomorrow, to practice grace with myself...
Oh, the glory of a new day! :)
