yesterday at three different moments throughout the day, i cried. like big time cried. the ugly crying kind with tears and snot where after a long sleep, my eyes could barely open this morning because everything is a little bit swollen. sometimes i’m thrown for such a loop and i start freaking out about everything. am i doing it right? are my kids okay? what if THIS happens, or THAT. and what is even happening! poor josh was there for the two of the three. that guy… i’m definitely making up for all the hormones he missed out witnessing by not having any sisters while growing up.
i’m not saying this for pity or to complain about anything or to fish for any compliments. i feel incredibly lucky and happy and loved. and today, i feel good. i think sometimes running on little sleep and being human can get to you though. i can stress myself out easily and it’s often quiet comical 24 hours later looking back and face palming. but i just wanted to share anyway, because as we enter the weekend, i hope we treat ourselves kindly and give ourselves the proper care and love we each deserve. what a beautiful thing it is to be human, and, while putting on a strong and confident face each day, to have those moments of learning and growth during a breaking point that often make everything else feel a little bit sweeter the following day.
i love you guys so much. i hope you know that. some of you have been here in this space with me for years and years, and i feel like we are good friends. thank you for believing in me and supporting me and being here. i hope you rock the weekend (even if the forecast says rain all weekend like it does here).
