This was written on July 25, 2015. When I sat down to write this particular thought, I was trying to write outside of how I was feeling. I do that pretty often. I was reaching for the flowers in my heart only to keep bringing up mushrooms. And if you know me – you know how I feel about mushrooms!!!
I Choose to be Real
Sometimes when I don’t want my day to be clouded with the worries of my world and I TRY to choose to be in a good mood – I just have to tell myself – “Let’s be real! This is how I really feel!” . . .
And when I wake up with no anxiety, no fears and with a smile on my face and in my heart, and one of my kids – or all of them – bursts my bubble and makes me want to scream … I try to choose to be in a good mood and I have to tell myself “Let’s be real – My life sucks today!”
And I make an attempt to begin my day and tell myself that I can do this and be strong and not let anything make this day any different than I had planned!!
But I found it hard to smile in my heart until I told myself –
“Lets be real – This day is sucky and it is what it is!
Than I smiled. : )
It was a sucky day. But knowing it was – and not fighting it – made it ok.
