Pressure

Why is it so hard for me to not please others? Is it so hard to say no every now and then? Sometimes the expectations I have of myself far exceed those others have for me, and though I know this about myself I haven’t been able to change it.

At first helping others and always being the willing volunteer didn’t seem like such a bad thing, but now it’s tiring. I feel like by the time I finish putting others first I’m left too mentally exhausted to do things for myself.

The funny thing is, as I’m typing this right now I’m smiling. Not because I find the situation remotely funny, but because I feel like I’m being totally selfish in feeling this way. I know tomorrow I’ll wake up, start another day, and do nothing different. My mind won’t let me be anything less than what I expect it to be, even if I wish it would.

I sign off with this: Life is not always about others, sometimes its about you taking the pressure off of yourself and saying NO.

So tired

It seems like no matter how much I sleep I am still so so tired. My days are slower, my mind is foggy, and I just want to rest.

I know that every day has its ups and downs and so I’m hoping today is just a down day. I can’t help but think what it would be like to go without these days though..just for a moment.

That being said, know I can handle whatever comes my way as long as I have the amazing support from my husband and those around me.

One day at a time, one foot in front of the other. I’ll keep on going until I have more highs than lows.

Just Have To Breathe

On a day where I woke up a bit agitated this got my attention.

Hope you all have a great day!

Short and Sweet

You never know who around you is suffering. Whether it be from anxiety, stress, a physical disease, or anything else really. Don’t ever let what you’re feeling take away from what others around you might be feeling.

Be aware. Be Kind. Be Thoughtful.
