Sometimes life is overwhelming

Sometimes life is overwhelming

Even though we live in a world full of technology today and so many things are so much easier than it was years ago, it has also made things harder in some ways.

 

Women have to be supermoms, superwifes, super work force women, we have to have it all, big important jobs, perfect lives, kids in every sport and activities imaginable, we have to keep up with the Jones and we have to look like barbie at all times while doing it all.

 

I know how hard it is being a single mom of two girls, I own my own home and all the repairs and matience that goes along with it. I work 3 jobs,

( I do professional organizing, I do hair at night and I do personal assistant work) when ever possible I do focus groups to make extra money.

I also do this blog on 4 different sites, 5 days a week. I do a weekly you tube video which I have to make, edit and put out, I am at the gym 5 mornings a week at 5:30 am, I go to church 2 days a week and volunteer whenever needed. On top of all that I just finished gutting and remoldeling my home plus writing my book which took a year of my life, now came the hard part, building a new website for it, setting up Facebook pages, intergram, twitter and now self publishing and all the joys that come along with it.

 

Dam I am tired just writing all of this! Yes, there are some days I have no idea how I do it all as I know you out there feel this as well.

We beat ourselves when we don’t get it all done, if our houses aren’t spotless, if we snap at little things because we are at wits end most of the time.

So today my friends, let go… I’ve  learned to let it go, okay the house wasn’t clean, I had a list as long as my arm of errands but I chose to go spend time with people I love this weekend, life is too short, the world is not going to end if our list is not done, no…enjoy the moment, live in it, live big, live well. Laugh often, be present, enjoy and feel grateful for every second you have…it is not a guarantee that you will get another.

 

So take off your super person cape, throw it out the window, turn up the music, sing at the top of your lungs and smile big…believe me the dishes are not having as much fun as you are!

The one thing about blogging. ..

The one thing about blogging….

 

I write this blog every day, I put my whole life out there, personal things, my deepest feelings, even embarrassing things, like when I screw up and fall on my face, (yup, there is alot of that going on!) there is nothing off limits here.

 

I do this because I am hoping that something I went through will help someone out there feel that they can do it, that they can change their lives and their circumstances. I want them to think if she did it and then she  talks about it to the world, I can definitely do it.

 

The one thing about writing this blog that I’ve learned is people will tell you their opinions weither what you want to hear it or not. Oh yes, I get it all the time and I understand that if I am putting it out there, I better be ready for opinions on my life, like it or not, I started this…so be ready!

 

Don’t get me wrong I get some incredible feed back from my readers and I appreciate it and am so grateful for them, but I am also grateful for the others, the ones that really give it to me. Why? You ask, because I am never to old, never to big, never to smart to learn something from another’s point of view, maybe I didn’t see that way, maybe my feelings got ahead of me (Not like that happens much,yea  right) maybe someone else had walked down that road and know it better than me.

 

I love that my cousin and my best friends know that they can and do call me out on things, I sometimes run into the ditch and need a good kick in the ass!

 

Even when the haters come at me, I am ready to listen to what they have to say, even in the hate, you can learn a lesson. There is always a lesson to be learned right or wrong, it’s there.

 

So today my friends, my advice to you is never think to too old to learn, never think your too smart to listen and never think you know it all, it is then you will stop growing into all your suppose to be.

I bet you thought this blog was about you…

Thursday Treadmill Treats

 

I bet you thought this blog was about you…

 

I write this blog every day, 5 days a week, for the last 3 years. Every day I need to come up with something to say, not just that, something that will encourage someone who is reading. This is a huge task and I don’t take it lightly, I write about things that happen to me, things that happened to others, things I saw or heard, it comes from everywhere.

 

I never call anyone out..okay once with Mr.Con artist but that was just a public service announcement to warn other women about his lying ways.

As I was saying I never call anyone out, if you truly know me you might guess who I am referring to, but even then you might be wrong.

 

I am not here to call anyone out, I am here to tell my story to help someone out in the same situation, sometimes I do a great job, other times I suck, it’s okay I am trying to show you we are all human, it’s okay to screw up, to say the wrong things, to fall on your face and then get back up and try it again hopefully with the knowledge of the lessons you have learned.

 

Yet, every time I write something I get so many messages “is your blog about me today?”

I have to laugh because they are so off base but yet I must have hit a nerve in them in order for them to reach out and ask in the first place.

 

Maybe if it is or you see yourself in my blog, you might want to ask yourself some questions about what the topic it was about..I write about all kinds of things, being kind, being God like, becoming a better person, learning the hard lessons, overcoming, believing in yourself. ..yet I never get messages that say “was that blog about me?”

 

But if I write about a person who lies, someone cheating, a back stabber, or so called friends, boy oh boy… duck, because here it comes… fast and furious…”was that about me?”

 

Sometimes I put 2 people into one, two stories together, sometimes yes, it is about one person, sometimes I dream it up and yes…sometimes it is about you!

But I never lie, I always say it like it is, the good, the bad and the really ugly, whatever it is, it is not about you…it’s about how I can use what happened to me to help others get through.

 

So today my friends before you call, text or write to me, ask yourself why did I hit that nerve? Why did you see yourself in that blog? Did I say something that maybe resembles you? These are deep questions and maybe just maybe I might have started you thinking about change…and that’s what this blog is about, changing and growing, looking deep inside and becoming a better you….
