Every have one of those days where you just don't know where you're going and you want to give up? That was me yesterday.
And let me tell you, I woke up fine but somewhere in between 2 PM and 3 PM everything just started going...well nowhere. I don't even know if 'nowhere' is the correct word to use. Maybe the word is 'spiraling'. Nevertheless, there I was. I was over my son being sick for the last week with the flu which later in the week triggered his asthma which made me feel unfit as a mom. Not to mention having to give him medication and to put him on the nebulizer for his asthma every 4 hours is draining. Then my dining area (and my house in general) is a mess. My dining area has turned into my office, eating, and medication station. I've been walking by it (really fast). I want to clean it up but I don't know where to start! I'm a little OCD and loathe disorder. And to top it off, my aunt passed and we didn't get to the funeral because of my sons illness - so I feel really horrible about it.
I know, breathe.
But I can't because in between seeing this mess and the thinking about the other 5,367 things I needed to do and had planned to do over the weekend are a NO GO! Then enters my little friend anxiety (hello, didn't see that coming) and inside I'm slowly beginning to have a panic attack! I'm stressed out even more and the other me appears - that's the me that doesn't want to let my kid know or see that I'm in stressed. You know...we wear the mask at times.
So what did I do? Finally, I sat myself down, gathered my thoughts and remembered that as much as I'd like to, I CAN NOT CONTROL EVERYTHING. I thought tomorrow is a new day with a new beginning. In the midst of that I also made an art print to use a reminder - because clearly I needed one! I'm sharing this print (see link below) with you today in case you need a reminder as well.
Enjoy and have a great day.
