Stop and smell the (latex) roses...
You guys, I’m so ready for our vacation. My anxiety has been annoying again, the number of times I’ve been peed on this week is impressive, and I got mom-shamed by another mom for my baby sleeping through the night (??? excuse me). I honestly didn’t even know what to post today. I’ve been feeling so “blah” towards myself lately and no one talks about how annoying the emotional ups and downs can continue to be even after you give birth. One day (or minute, it’s whatever) I will be SO content and happy about everything, and the next it’s like ...what’s wrong with me?
I thought it was important to post about it in case anyone else feels the same way. One thing that finally helped me was forcing myself to sit down (alone- *gasp!*) and basically just vent to God about what I was feeling. I’ve been so bad at keeping up with my own devotions and it’s taking its toll. For me, I can feel God the most through music or simply just sitting somewhere outdoors and talking to Him. Here’s a gentle reminder to everyone to take time to do whatever makes you feel close to God. We all have our different ways of worshipping Him. Do what will make you focus most on Him for as much time as you can get. If you don’t know what that is, try a few different things! God always notices you trying to seek Him.
Your week may or may not change, but if you ask Him for even a moment of peace, you will get it. Take it from me. I got spit up on right after my calming moment with God (#momlife ), but I still felt a different peace in my soul as I went through the rest of the day. He is listening and He is there feeling everything with you. Even if you’re getting literally or metaphorically peed on by the world outside. focus on things above.
