"You must do the thing you think you cannot do." Eleanor Roosevelt.
I am wondering have we been taught that we can have it all, do it all & when we can't we feel that we have failed somehow. Have we been so indoctrinated with the power of positive thinking & assertion that when it all doesn't come to fruition what are we left with?? ......Do we ever really know or fully appreciate the reason we are here?? Is it enough to raise our kids without having some title able to be confident in your identity without feeling you need to be somewhere or be SOMEONE??Do we spend enough time doing things we are supposed to, depending on our own personal convictions?? so many questions & wonderings the list could go on & on & on......all wonderings I think maybe of an overtired, overanalysing woman??!! LOL
The last week has been an interesting one......I am always happy & thankful, but occasionally slip into irrelevant thought patterns..... I have extremely high expectations of myself & seem to think I am some kind of superwoman!! I constantly feel that I do not measure up!!! I do not have these of anyone else in my life just of myself. I definately do not want to pass that on to my beautiful girls. Sometimes in the monotony of everyday life I think about lots of things & procrastinate (which is not really me)......maybe too much, & sometimes feel overwhelmed with what needs to be done.....some things quite boring & endless. (Lack of sleep does not help with thought processes!!)
I then pull myself together and see that I am incredibly blessed with the love of a Saviour, an awesome husband who loves me, 3 beautiful healthy girls who at times drive me crazy but I just adore!!! That he has restored a beautiful relationship with this gorgeous girl (who is not only beautiful inside & out, but a very talented young woman) & her Mum, way beyond what I imagined!!! (Isn't she gorgeous & she loves my kids, me & scrapping woohoo, what else could I ask for!!) When I look at the incredible blessings I have, I am sometimes embarassed for feeling that way......I really could not have asked for a better life.......with this in mind I leave you with some photos of my amazing family. Just looking at them makes me smile & not think of the insignificant things that you can so easily become wrapped up in!!! Have a great weekend. Love Mx
