Pity Party for One

Would the world just stop a second and let me breathe?

That’s how I was feeling yesterday. I felt like I just couldn’t keep up with my life. As a mother. As a wife. As a business partner. As a friend. I felt like everyone was mad at me. I couldn’t do anything right and I was failing in every area of my life.

Sometimes I want to just wallow in self-pity.  So here I was, wallowing. Pity party for one.

Yesterday was my day to feel the load of all my stresses. Ending in a pathetic cry on a friend’s shoulder.

Last night I went to bed early. Praying that tomorrow the ‘cloud’ would be lifted. And just as the sun rises, God answered my plea. My alarm went off at 5:50 and my husband pulled me into his arms and 2 seconds later my 5 year old (bed-stowaway) scooched over to make me the jelly in their cuddle sandwich. Heaven. The world as I know it went from black & white to color again ~ just like that.

Am I the only one who feels like the sky is falling one day and then the next it’s just like yesterday never even happen? The ‘ups and downs’ have gotten so much stronger in my old age. Is this normal?

Is it the lack of organization and schedule in my life? Is it the cold dreary weather chilling me to the bone? {It didn’t help that the Arby’s drive through guy said it was suppose to snow this weekend and all of our winter-gear is boxed up in Storage.  Sigh*} Maybe it’s because a good friend just turned 40 and I know I’m next up. I’m about to say something only the person going through it is allowed to say… but… am I simply PMSing? Is it a woman thing? What’s my problem? I could see I was crazy, but I couldn’t help my downward mental spiral. Drama queen, who me?

Just breathe… because I’ve learned that tomorrow the sun will shine and bring new light on whatever I was consumed with the day before. All will be well.

I need to remember during my ‘blues’ that tomorrow is a new day. New possibilities. With a brand new attitude!

My smile has returned.

Please tell me I’m not alone in this craziness. Please tell me you have irrational ‘nutty’ days like me!

  1. You look gorgeous! What great colors for you! And I think we should declare track pants a national staple!! Love them! Yes I have many high and low days too. My daughter is 13 so its like we are on a roller coaster every day. But God is good. We keep our focus on Him and He always pulls us through(: Susan

  2. You are not alone at all. I have days like that, and then poof, I’m all better. I do think this weather and the darker days are really starting to affect me. I was just telling Chris this morning that I have felt so exhausted this week for no reason. I can only blame daylight savings time. I’m glad you’re feeling better!

  3. Love the plum cozy pants with those booties. The cropped jacket makes a nice sillouete with the pants. I feel like you do lately ! I had to just get out of the house yesterday by myself and go for a coffee, just to relax and chill out. I get those days where you just want the next day to come around. Glad you are feeling better now. :_))
