Wow, am I tired! This has been a crazy few weeks...conference, travel, funeral, funeral luncheon, respite, 50th wedding anniversary party, funeral, respite, teleseminar, 16th birthday party, not to mention homeschooling and 6 teens. Some months I feel like I just bounce from event to event. While I enjoy planning all of these fun times, I eventually hit a wall! I am here...I hit it...and I am not done yet. Yikes!
I crashed last night - cuddly clothes and slippers, curled up in my chair. Just zoned! Good night's rest and am back at it again today!
I think that is the key. Sometimes you just have to give yourself permission to stop, take care of yourself and start again! I mean the reality is that it is never really done. As a mom, wife, daughter and friend, we are never REALLY done! Relationships are living, breathing things that we must continuously work at. The key is to remember the one we have with ourselves. The relationship in which we remember to honor our own needs and wants too!
I need to get in shape and I want to be healthy so...even though I am tired, I am going for my walk! (If I say it here I will do it for sure! ) I want to change up some pictures on my wall so I am going to stop the madness for a few minutes and do that this afternoon! My desk is a pit so I am going to take care of my mental health and get it ba
ck in shape today! I think I am going to take my book and sit on the porch swing for a while and read too! All the rest of the craziness can happen all around these things, but I need to take care of me too!
What those around me don't know is that if I do these few things...I can be a better mom, wife, daughter and friend to all of them. So, here's to being tired, re-fueling, and getting tired again! Oh what a wonderful life!
