I went for a walk today. It was good that Little got to ride her bike and be out and active and good because a storm is coming in. I love storms. Storms on the beach are a beauty I cannot adequately describe. They also help me think. I got some peace and found (shocker) I have not being doing well with self-care.

While I dearly love my friends and family. I often tend to put their real and perceived needs above my own. Which makes me like I have too many hats and only one head. Time for some introspection. I also am feeling hung up about things. We are waiting on an offer on a house so I am feeling like I have one foot here and one foot there. I am trying to rework childcare needs, trying to rework work and family needs etc, etc, etc

With so many things going on and so many half done projects I feel lack luster and like I am half asses (pardon the language) Which has got me a little down. I also feel like the more things I take on the less I am focusing on my goals. It was nice to have time to think and time to contemplate my needs so I can steer my course better.

  1. stay positive missy.

  2. Hugs! Go make some art with your little. 🙂

  3. Some tools that have helped me when I’ve been where you are is writing everything that is on my mind down, making a “to do list” I can check off as I accomplish things, try to do one thing at a time and do it well — trying to eat all the pie at once can give you a horrible tummy ache! Prioritize and decide what things, in the swirling chaos, are the most important and tackle those first. Be kind, gentle and forgiving of you. I find taking even a brief, brisk walk with upbeat music blasting helps me refocus in chaos too! A certain amount of surrender is involved with the waiting about house news. If you’ve done all you can, then you have to take your hands off the wheel and trust what is suppose to happen is what will happen. Invest thought into the most positive of outcomes! You get what you expect. Hope this helps!

Br0ken Girl Diaries

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
