It’s time for some real talk. This week has been a crazy rollercoaster ride, and for some reason it won’t stop snowing.
I learned very young that sometimes, life just doesn’t go as you planned it. Cliche as that is, it’s true. Life is gonna throw you curveballs. It’s all in how you deal with them.
My life didn’t turn out the way I had planned it. Until I was 32 years old, my life went in every direction possible and when I finally took the reigns back and slapped the chaos monster in the face, life changed in the best ways. But, I am grateful. Every day. For the things I have, and those that I don’t have anymore. For the people I love, and those I had to walk away from. For the opportunities I get to take advantage of every day, and the ones I turned my back on. I’m simply, grateful.
Okay, so maybe some days my life still goes sideways. Some days my kids refuse to listen. Some days my fiancé makes me crazy. Some days my job makes me question my sanity. Some days people disappoint me. Some days my soon to be stepdaughters are too busy to come have dinner with us. But I have finally reached a point in my life that I can handle everything life throws at me without completely losing my #*%$.
This week has been rough. My anxiety level has been about as high as Kilimanjaro. My whole body hurts, so I feel 60 instead of 36. My kids have had two snow days, and are going stir crazy. My friend has had her world rocked. My fiancé is sick. Work has been nuts.
But guess what? There is a silver lining. It’s finally Friday and this weekend is going to be amazing. We made it through the week people. Let’s celebrate. Tomorrow is a new day.
