Sometimes life can get you down… Things aren’t going right and you feel like you’re banging your head against the proverbial wall. I don’t mean to sound like Debbie Downer but every once in a while life seems to overtake us and we can’t catch a breath. Mine has been this way for about three months now. The ever going crazy schedule of two boys with school, sports, Boyscouts… The youngest needing my attention every second of the day because he’s bored out of his mind and the transition of my hubby taking a new job and moving to a new city. Let’s just say it’s been panic attack city for me lately.
Don’t get me wrong I love my life so much and wouldn’t change it for the world but I’m about to pull my hair out! We have been running non stop since January! I pray daily for patience and the ability to calm myself through these situations but I still feel overwhelmed. I feel God’s presence each and every day but sometimes I wonder if he’s listening completely to my prayers.
We are still in the process of trying to sell our house and just that issue is super stressful! But I know he’s here.. He’s watching over me and he is slowly guiding me to where I need to be. Even if I don’t feel like it sometimes he has a plan.. Even if I feel like he’s not moving fast enough to answer my prayers I know he’s teaching me the patience of which I prayed for. Life is hard. But life is beautiful.
Sitting here this morning waiting for my oldest to finish golf camp I was inspired. It’s beautiful despite the rising temperature. It’s beautiful with the birds singing and the bugs buzzing even though those said bugs are eating us alive. It’s beautiful to see the green grass and large trees despite my allergies and stuffed up nose. It’s beautiful because I get to see my son do something he absolutely loves. It’s beautiful because my two youngest are sitting here with their iPads in their own world just for a bit. There is no fighting.. there is no bickering or karate chopping. It’s silence and its beautiful. My life might be up in the air right now but I’m taking this moment to be blessed by the beautiful things that surround me.
It’s ok to have a down time in your life, I sure the hell do, but let’s not let it stop us from enjoying the beautiful things that surround us. It might be something little but it might be something big. Find the good in the world and maybe you’ll find the good in yourself. We must be strong. We must be united. We are beautiful.
Life is the most beautiful of messes, don’t let it get you down or pass you by.
My favorite saying for when I end a yoga class is..
You are strong
You are beautiful
You are everything
The light in me loves the light in you.
Namaste and God bless! 😘😘🙌♥️💜💙
